Literary Lair.

This house renovation refresh in the heart of Fox Point exudes comfort and ease. An exquisite mix of modern and classic style is masterly combined with antiques and heirlooms to create a beautifully eclectic home designed for both entertaining and curling up with a good book.


The client approached Peabody’s Emily Winters to design her “Dreamhouse” – a place to host dinner parties, entertain overnight guests and be a fun haven for family and friends. In just over 7 months, Emily created a warm and welcoming space that showcases art and books. The cohesive bright palette is balanced with neutral tones of grey and ivory and highlights of black and green. Favorite color pink is used whenever possible, in sophisticated shades, and harmonies of blue and red. The must have green velvet sofa rests under framed Baptism dresses in the living room and a coveted Brunschwig & Fils wallpaper found a home in the dining room, perfect for a literary devotee.
