Al Fresco Elegance

Al Fresco Elegance1The serenity of the pool terrace at dusk is a compliment to the interior designer, Kristin Peake, who chose a palette as soothing as the froth on a latte to complete a grand private garden in McLean. On a hot summer day, creamy draperies billow in the arches of the deliciously cool pool house loggia, a nod to the Old World elegance she imagined. But Peake is the first to acknowledge that success on this project required more than plump cushions and custom chaises or meticulous attention to the detail of ceramic tiles. Recasting this long, narrow backyard into a modern family paradise required a team of experts and a client who understood the value of a master plan.
