Home Sweet Home: Chic and Sweet

Sharing today a lovely home located in Chappaqua, NY.
Designed by Chauncey Boothby, this  – what she describes as “a new traditional” style – was the perfect fit for a young couple transitioning from New York City life to the suburbs.

Chauncey Boothby:

“What I wanted to create here was a fresh, youthful look, one that took some classic, traditional elements and added a bit of edge to them and made them feel new and totally livable.” 

A quiet moment in the entryway is accented by a Visual Comfort table lamp and industrial-inspired art.

Chauncey attempted to seamlessly blend the couple’s love of industrial and their desire to soften its hard lines throughout the home.

The couple gravitated to more-industrial elements, so Chauncey set about softening that look in the master bedroom with simple white drapes and a muted palette.
The room is painted in Horizon from Benjamin Moore.
Table lamps from Ralph Lauren Home serve as bedside lighting.

Three-dimensional floral art provides symmetry in the master bath.
The jute basket provides texture and warmth to the space.

The choice to go dark in the formal living room was actually client-led.
“I usually have to do a lot of arm-twisting when it comes to strong colors,” says Chauncey.
She chose to lighten the space up with whites, marigolds, and greens.

Pattern takes center stage in the guest room.
The bed is draped in fabric from Les Indiennes.
Gold table lamps add a pop of metallic brilliance.

Opposite the patterned bed is a simple scene.
The tripod floor lamp‘s warm legs accents play well with the leather accents on the accompanying campaign chair.

“I wanted to find a color that could hold its own,” says Chauncey of her choice to go pink in the dining room.
The grass-cloth wallpaper adds color with subtle elegance.
The decorative bowls from All Across Africa double as wall art loaded with texture.


“This room was originally an empty box when I started with them,” says Chauncey.
“When they found out they were having a baby girl, they wanted a nonpink nursery that felt chic but also with woodland creatures.”


Chauncey went with layered neutrals and touches of blue in the family room.
Woven jute elements throughout the room punch up the texture and modern vibe.


Chauncey worked with the couple to transform the basement into an ultimate entertaining space.
It includes a wet bar, a pool table, and a wine cellar.



Don’t be fooled into thinking the redesigned basement is just a glorified man cave, warns Chauncey. “It was really the wife who was the driving force of this space,” she says.
“I don’t know what you would tag the ‘she shed’ version of a wine cellar, but this is it.”
