We’ve been thinking about his home featured on the cover of the December/January 2012 issue of House Beautiful ever since it landed in our mailbox. The home manages to be both refined and approachable – polished and personal. No doubt that the owners Mark D. Sikes and Michael Griffin know how to create a beautiful home. In fact, Michael and Mark are both visual merchandisers so it is only natural that their home is an absolute pleasure to look at!
Here is what Mark Sikes has to say about his home which he categorizes as “New Traditional”:
Easy formulas- the mix of old and new, traditional and modern, high and low, masculine and feminine, rough and soft, light and dark- the combination of this gave us the casual refined lived-in style we love. the design philosophy was based on carrying consistent threads throughout to create a flow, beautiful lighting, symmetry balanced with scale and an eclectic artful arrangement of furniture. finished off with lots of accessories stacked, clustered, leaning and grouped. details, details, details! the focus and intent was that everything intersect and highlight our collections- the things we love!
