All-White Kitchen

For an elegant kitchen, designer Allison Caccoma installed pure white marble countertops. "I pictured old white stone like you'd see in some ancient Parisian bar," she says. Calacatta Gold marble countertop and Rohl porcelain sink.

Breakfast Room

To balance the diamond pattern on the walls, Caccoma used softer lines and curves in the breakfast room's chandelier and chairs. The floral-like fabric, a Robert Kime suzani, provides a burst of color against the all-white kitchen and helps the space feel like an extension of the garden.


Although the predictable thing would be to paint the ceiling blue, high-gloss yellow adds reflection to the room. "The ceiling does the same thing for the sunroom that the mirrored lattice does for the kitchen — it gives the room such a terrific lift," says Caccoma.

Living Room

The 1901 American seascape above the Regency breakfront inspired the living room's pale blues and greens. A 1940s blue glass lamp makes the traditional room less formal.

Colorful Walls

When light reflects off the walls at night, a waxy shine from the Venetian plaster creates a sense of motion. Porcelain ginger jars from John Rosselli.

Guest Bedroom

To give the guest bedroom a cocoon effect, the same fabric was used for the walls and Roman shade, "so you can close the door, lower the shades, and be enveloped," says Caccoma.
