On the topic of Virginia, have you seen the elegant and bright stone house in the Nov/Dec 2012 issue of Traditional Home magazine? Architect Christian Zapatka thoughtfully renovated and expanded this home for the Jeffress family, bringing in more light and a better flow. The interiors were decorated by my good friend and renowned designer, Frank Babb Randolph. Frank chose a light palette and many pieces from Tone on Tone. The stone house looks especially ethereal and beautiful for Christmas.
Please note: all photos are by Werner Straube for Traditional Home. I've included a few shots that were not published. To read further and see even more photos, please pick up an issue of Traditional Home on newstands now.
Many, many thanks to Frank and the Jeffress family!
