One problem Suzanne and Lauren encountered when decorating the traditional living room was the placement of its windows. “The room has great bones, but it’s not perfectly symmetrical,” says Suzanne.

The family room’s comfortable furnishings and colorful accessories give it a child-friendly atmosphere. “This is where the kids play and where my husband and I hang out in the evenings,” says Larson.

Before the McGraths began their work, the foyer—once a small, white box—lacked a sense of gravity. “Adding the faux-wood wallpaper changed the way you felt in the space,” says Larson. “And bringing it up the stairwell gave the room a presence that it didn’t have before.”

At first, Larson was afraid the dining room’s oversize chandelier would be too big. “I convinced her that it would trick the eye and make the ceiling look higher,” Suzanne says. “After it was hung, everyone stood back and loved it.”

“Timeless design, moments of whimsy, and classic New England coziness—with a tiny bit of fabulous mixed in for good measure” was how Larson described her hopes for the home.
