Marisa Bistany Perkins uses pattern and texture to create sophisticated interiors.

A couple with a passion for modern architecture built their ideal Connecticut home with the help of a design dream team.

“The house is all about color,” says designer Lynn Morgan. “My client wanted to give it a big wow, and she wasn’t afraid to take the bold steps to get there.”

Designed with a modern lifestyle in mind, Marcia Tucker’s home serves as a backdrop for living.

“My goal was to marry some coastal calm with the craziness of having three kids under the age of three,” says the homeowner.
