a small room underneath her stairs, and I knew my grandchildren would love this room. We picked out this wallpaper called Critters. Jones said, ‘I think this is really fun,’ and I said, ‘I think so too.’ And when Conway (Jeanie’s granddaughter) was just walking, she’d come in here and point and we’d talk about the color or the insect. My grandchildren just love this little bathroom.” One area of the house that received a lot of updating was the kitchen. The previous owner had the space divided between a kitchen with a built-in banquette and a sunroom. Conway removed the wall that separated the two spaces to open it up into one large room.

The new configuration is spacious and easily accessible. It also allowed room for an oversized island. The island, topped in unique marble with streaks of purples and burgundies, accentuates the openness of the new bathroom and creates a stunning focal point.

So Dana drained it, made it more shallow, and resurfaced the inside. He also added some new coping and tile,” she said. In addition to the pool changes, they freshened up the outside surfaces and
