Center Stage

While many things have changed, however, one thing hasn’t: Because the husband is in a classic-rock cover band and the kids sing, music remains a principal activity for the family. “We always have music going and wine flowing,” says the homeowner. That meant the open, mezzanine-like space with a white piano had to be versatile enough to accommodate impromptu jam sessions. Sanders jettisoned the idea of a rug to make furniture easily movable and kept the palette creamy and neutral, focusing attention on the dunes and waves beyond the large picture windows.
