How do the two of you work collaboratively to design the space?
Matthew: Sam and I work extremely collaboratively, both at home and at work. But the fact is, she's way more handy than I am. Sam is a builder. She was born with a tool set and knows how to use it. I mean, she built our bed, our dressers, the bookshelves - even the backgammon set. We have a lot of shared tastes, and everything here is a reflection of that, but if it needs to be built, she's the one doing it, haha!
Samantha: We also painted the dining room, the bathroom, the windowsills, the fireplaces - all of those little things that create more of a home. Obviously, we really love color, so we wanted to make the place seem more colorful and cheerful, but it also makes the space feel more comfortable, more personal.
