This family home is a versatile space for living and entertaining as well as a place to display the owners’ art collection. Natural materials were purposely left slightly raw—translating to an elegant but not overly refined space. Interiors/furnishings by Garret Cord Werner.

Art can be presented as if woven into the fabric of the architecture — like jewels in a tapestry. Jim Olson
