Easy Organization

Another shipshape attribute of the home is its clever use of built-ins. Smart shelving in every nook and cranny ensure that no space goes unused, as do the inviting window seats, which are upholstered in weatherproof fabric. The breakfast room, just off the kitchen, features a customized banquette that seats the family of six plus their weekend guests. "You can just slide everyone in there," says Lynn.

The mudroom pillows are from Jonathan Adler.
