This is a place where rowdy kids have gathered, dogs have roamed and feet have always been invited "up." "I'm a mom of boys, I'm outnumbered!" jokes Karen Reilly. "They never cared what I did to the house and they don't mind the 'pretty.' I'm given a lot of free reign but my goal has always been to create a space that is comfortable and relaxing.
