Lisa Tullai updates a Stevensville, Maryland, home with a fresh, new look and better functionality

Family Time - Located on 21 acres in Stevensville, Maryland, a sprawling home on Eastern Bay proved an idyllic perch for a couple with five active boys—but the interiors needed some work.

The owners tapped a design team that included Lisa Tullai of Annapolis Interiors to overhaul the 2005 house with a fresh, new look and better functionality.

The wife “was struggling with colors and finishes,”Tullai recalls. “In discussion, I realized that she first needed the house to function better for the family—then we could tackle the design.” A rear addition with a vaulted ceiling and a wall of windows created space for a bigger kitchen and a breakfast nook—while making the views center stage.

Tullai guided the design in a transitional direction, selecting coastal shades of sand and blue “so as not to interrupt the view,” and surfaces with a rustic, organic feel such as a shiplap ceiling, reclaimed-stone walls and an Arhaus tabletop in marble mosaic. Chairs in Leathercraft performance fabric are designed to withstand life in a rough-and-tumble family.
