W hen it comes to a family home, practicality and functionality typically override luxury aesthetic. But throughout this 4,500-square-foot home in Chatham, New Jersey, interior designer Cory Connor, founder of Cory Connor Designs, found a way to create an elegant space full of detail, without compromising comfort. Mixing both masculine and earthy designs with functional pieces make the home not only beautiful, but also a place fit for a growing family. Connor's aesthetic usually involves clean, streamlined looks; depending on the client, design could be anything from a bit modern to a little industrial, while utilizing neutral hues as a base and adding pops of color throughout the rooms. The owners of this Chatham home prefered a more masculine design, with heavier and darker tones, as well as an inclusion of earthy and natural elements. This is evident throughout the home, beginning in the dining room, where walls are a bold blue, while the rest of the room is toned down with tan window treatments and newly upholstered chairs in a bright white fabric. The two head chairs around the table are dressed in a calf hair fabric, with a matching rug lining the floor under the rich wood table. By Victoria Keenan VUE ON DESIGN V U E N J . C O M 69
