"I can't imagine what this house would have looked like without James," she says. "We are so happy with it. It was a blessing to have this house, and another blessing to have James decorate it. It's a beauty." WITH VAULTED CEILINGS, MULTIPLE LEVELS, AND AN OPEN FLOOR PLAN THAT ENVELOPS THE KITCHEN, LIVING, AND DINING ROOMS, THE INTERIORS FEEL AS FRESH AS THEY DID 50 YEARS AGO.
