the mantel in the living room was given a modern
update. Grass-cloth wallcovering by Holland &
Sherry “is relaxing and tonal,” says Elms. Touches of
blue are found in the silk Roman shades and the
barrel chairs Elms had reupholstered in velvet. In the
foyer (facing page), a painting by Sol Le Witt sits
atop a custom console table. The orange stools can
be used for extra seating in the living room.
