Name: Susan & Matt Sandler
Location: Bedford, New Hampshire
Susan is an interior designer who studied design and architecture in Boston and recently relocated back to her cozy hometown of Bedford, New Hampshire. She and Matt bought this 1940's ranch a few years ago and make all of their design decisions mindful of the home's architecture.
The sturdy lines of the ceiling beams, the blocks of large windows and the glossy wood floor boards are simple, clean and classic. Their personal touch of flowing drapes in the living room, a collection of seashells in the bathroom, and a hand-painted sideboard in the dining room — that has been in her family for three generations — brings warmth and depth to the space. The piece above the sideboard was a local consignment store find and she recovered the dining room chairs with fabric she found for $10. When she's not designing, she's curled up with a book on her sofa which gets the best natural light for reading.
