Everything about the Old Greenwich site on which their family's Colonial-inspired home sat appealed to these homeowners, but they couldn't get past the home's traditional styling and details. They commissioned designer Calla McNamara to transform the interiors into a modern living space that could accommodate and highlight the wife's own art ( she is a painter ) and an ever-growing collection of works by other artists. McNamara opened up walls, replaced moldings, changed kitchen cabinetry and removed a wall separating the kitchen from the family room. She then configured seating such that guests could sit and face the kitchen or enjoy the re-faced fireplace. A quartz island gives family and friends a centralized place to convene. The most dramatic moment of the decor, however, is a removable swing that hangs from an I-beam.
