When a family needed to downsize, they called in designer Pamela Pennington to help them restyle their lives in a smaller home, with most of their living space on the first floor and extra bedrooms for visiting children on the second floor. After architect Bess Wiersema of Studio 3 Design finished the structure, much of Pennington’s work with her colleague, Henry Nissani, involved introducing the clients to a fresher, more modern aesthetic. At first, the wife was more nervous than the husband about leaving behind her traditional pieces, but as the project unfolded, she began to see how contemporary furnishings and artworks could bring a new kind of beauty to her life. Here, tour the new home with Pennington to see how she used calming colors and inspired details to craft this charming, modern space.
