Living Room: Custom carpentry details—including wainscoting, a two-story fireplace surround and bookcases with a sliding library ladder—add charm and sophistication to this cozy space for streaming or reading.

Kitchen: The home’s muted and beachy color palette was inspired by favorite family vacations in WaterColor, Florida and Palmetto Bluffs, South Carolina.

Cambria quartz counters in the chef’s kitchen hide a surprise TV that pops out of the island.

Hearth Room: The homeowner’s favorite room in the house includes a see-through fireplace to the home office tucked behind it.

Screened Porch: A sunny back porch adjacent to the kitchen is the perfect space to enjoy summer family time. A fireplace takes the chill off cool Midwestern evenings.

Foyer: Light streams through two-story windows in the inviting foyer of this month’s featured home.
