Remodeling and Home Design

Larchmont House

This was Pat Gericke's first major residential assignment. The clients had diverse interests: she was a collector of Vaseline glass and American silver and he was a stockbroker heavily vested in professional sports teams. The design had to echo both their interests. The living and dining rooms reflect the wife's Southern sense of hospitality with their soft colors and floral patterns. They also provide showcases for her glass collection and inherited antiques.

To the husband's delight, the lower level of the house was turned into a tiny baseball stadium. An actual baseball field photo was superimposed on an entire wall, creating a backdrop for the stadium bench seating. A leather lounge chair shaped like a baseball glove and a huge TV monitor completes his sports room.
