Built for previous clients in 2004 by noted Mississippi architect Lewis Graeber III, the house is set on two secluded acres with a creek. "There's a lot of pretty sea colors like blues and watery greens. We both love pink, and it was just the right color for the bedroom — the grasscloth walls, draperies, and rug all have variations of pink. The color makes the Jim Thompson palm fabric on the bed the shining star of the room." The library's daring combination of green-lacquered walls layered with hits of lavender is Vose's favorite new pairing. In a stroke of luck, a set of four Italian rosewood chairs from the 1950s, purchased from Jan Showers years ago for Vose's previous house, came with the original lavender leather upholstery and were a perfect fit. They're pulled up to a sleek Italian desk that doubles as a game table — and, when desired, a dining nook. For Vose, travel has often meant work rather than leisure. Here, she can feel transported without leaving home, an experience others have commented on. "I had people over to play mah-jongg on Sunday and it was a mix of young and older friends," Vose says. "Everyone walked in the living room with all the greenery outside the windows and the Gracie wallpaper, and they said, 'Oh my gosh, I feel like I'm on vacation.'" (Continued from 48) A dining area in the living room with Gracie's New World panoramic landscape wallpaper and chairs in the style of Maison Jansen from Muse on Slocum. Italian glass side tables from Nick Brock Antiques. Custom BDDW sofa. Dining table from Balsamo, NY. The kitchen's custom range hood is by Casci Ornamental Plaster. Swedish 1940s Orrefors light pendants. Caned barstools from Burke Decor. Opposite page: In the loggia, McKinnon and Harris furniture. A John Dickenson table from David Sutherland Showroom. China Seas drapery panels.
