Art as an Anchor


In the dining room, a colorful abstract by Erik Knight called A Painter’s Space is one of two paintings that set the tone for the interior design by Linda Banks of Simply Home and Banks Design Associates. Banks added a custom-designed wainscoting to break the height of the walls and add architectural interest. A handmade Italian table, chandelier, and wall sconces add some elegance, while the green chairs and blue console bring in some playful pops of color.
