Understated Elegance

With an eye to employing eco-friendly materials wherever possible, Sanders clad the exterior in weather-resistant, white-stained cedar shingles, replaced the windows, and ordered new plumbing and electrical systems. When it came to decor, though, he took a step back before moving forward, rethinking the entire layout of the home. “I wanted to streamline everything so that the house would flow better and be more open,” he explains. Sanders also wanted the home to feel more grown-up, a design directive that led him to elegant midcentury furnishings and sophisticated yet low-maintenance twills.
