Honoring Carleton Varney

Enthusiastic and exuberant Interior Designer Carleton Varney died on July 14, 2022 in Palm Beach, Florida. He was 85.

To continue the transformation, we designed wood ceiling beams, columns, a focal point vent hood over the range and a timbered wall to the mud room. We stained the boards in the sunroom to match. Then we added new lighting and fans. The new backsplash ties […]
