Rounding out the first floor are a cozy family room with a built-in bench and Ikea sectional, a cheery pink breakfast room painted in Sherwin-Williams’ Coral Reef Salmon and a living room layered with vintage and contemporary finds.
Upstairs, you’ll find five bedrooms — one of which serves as Crawford-D’Amato’s closet — where the homeowners had to rip out navy blue indoor-outdoor carpet and replace it with new hardwood floors. The master bedroom boasts one deep blue feature wall (in Sherwin-Williams’ Naval), which contrasts with the white walls, natural light from the windows and light-colored hardwood floors.
“It’s nice to integrate some color but not have to paint the entire bedroom every couple of years,” she says. “Being a graphic designer, I love color and staying up on color trends from a home decor standpoint, so I always like to experiment.”
D’Amato-Crawford’s favorite space is the living room, which is outfitted with a light denim couch she had custom-upholstered from CB2 and a large buffet she bought from the Cleveland Furniture Bank. “I go there on the weekends to read, and it’s away from the TV, to be quite honest,” she says. “Plus, with the floor-to-ceiling windows, it’s so beautiful.”
The windows are in fact bi-fold doors that open up to a garden where white tulips and purple alliums bloom in the spring. The courtyard also serves as entertaining space for cocktails around the campfire. Outside, D’Amato-Crawford’s white enamel, freestanding steel fireplace is a vintage eBay find.
Follow the path to the main backyard, and you’re at the Crawfords’ summer hangout: an in-ground saltwater pool.
“It has that indoor/outdoor feel,” D’Amato-Crawford says of the home. “It doesn’t feel like an Ohio house.”
