Not long ago, Russell and Tess Jones moved to Woodinville, Washington to be closer to family. Located just 20 minutes east of Seattle, the community is surrounded by forest and home to several wineries. The couple is building their dream house and they want the entry and living room to make a grand statement.
The homeowners chose designer Sheri D. Orts, who uses rich fabrics and a few tricks with paint to capture an old world-style. Venetian plaster on the walls and ceiling add warmth and richness. Orts adds an area rug to complement and enhance the new colors in the room. After the final touches are added, the Jones have a traditional entry and living room that make them feel like they're king and queen of their castle.
