Sentimental North Carolina Spruce-Up

Four spacious private suites, each with its own adjoining bath, make it easy for Maggie and David to host their large family—sometimes 20 people at a time—under one roof. From an antique Turkish textile to contemporary artwork, the master suite reflects Maggie’s affinity for balancing aged accents with fresh finds.

Comfort was a top priority, yet every room also reflects her design sensibilities and feels decidedly personal. An upstairs bedroom swathed in a dramatic floral wallpaper gains extra interest from special touches like antique luggage Maggie inherited from her great-grandparents and pillow covers fashioned from a long-forgotten bolt of crewel fabric discovered in her mother-in-law’s garage.
