She has a sparkle to her,” designer Susan Connor says of her client, whose family was relocating from Connecticut to Boca Raton. Connor wanted to capture her client’s relaxed glamour and bring it to her and her husband’s new home, but with three young and active boys in the equation, “we didn’t want to make it ‘a don’t-touch-me house,’ ” she recalls.
The residence in question was a Georgian-inspired house that was designed by architect Benjamin Schreier of Affiniti Architects and built by Mark Pulte of Mark Timothy, Inc. As much as the wife adored the traditional vernacular, she was eager to move away from the formality she was used to up North and embrace a more casual—albeit chic—way of living in keeping with their new Florida lifestyle. “I liked the simplicity and symmetry of the exterior, but I didn’t want things to be fussy inside,” she explains. “I’m more modern and edgy, even in the way I dress. I wanted it to be airy and light, not heavy.”
