“I asked him to take traditional architecture and make it feel young, fresh, and contemporary,” Seiders said of the plan for the lot she purchased with her husband, Rick.

White walls, wood plank flooring and exposed beams carry the modern vibe inside, where eclectic furnishings balance one another. A freeform teak cocktail table, for instance, brings an organic sensibility to the linear architecture and tailored furnishings in the lofted formal living room, while a custom dark-stone fireplace mantel adds visual, as well as tactile, contrast.
“I like to balance the shapes and make sure there’s enough of a yin and yang in every space,” Seiders explains. “You want your eye to dance around the room.”
