Home of the Month: The Blue Print

Open, airy and completely renovated best describes the Williamsville split-level home of Nick and Marcia Roth. Here’s a peek inside:


Ground-level family room with attached screened-in porch and half bath leads a half-story up to an open living room, kitchen, eating area and front entranceway. Two bedrooms – one used as a home office, the other as a guest room – full bath and master suite with another bath on the upper levels. There’s also a basement.


White slipcovered Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams seating purchased at Room on Hertel Avenue, shadow box coffee table, glass-topped side tables and built-in bookcases in living room. Linen-white wood and washed-wicker furniture in master suite. Leather seating in family room as well as a unique storage piece – an old letter press cabinet with 20 shallow drawers. Several hand-painted accent pieces.


Oak hardwood, area rugs, marble, light carpeting in bedrooms.


Benjamin Moore’s Navajo White throughout except family room walls, which the Roths glazed using two colors – mocha and maize from the American Tradition Faux Translucent Color Glaze line.


Beach-themed accessories as well as decorative items reflecting their travels to Napa Valley, Calif., and Tuscany and Umbria, Italy. Framed artwork. Eye-catching toss pillows. White and purple orchids in living room. Lots of recessed lighting and accent lighting indoors and out, including wall sconces and rope lighting.


Mostly left untreated to play up natural light and expose white woodwork. Some cellular shades where privacy is needed.


Inground pool with furnished deck, perennial and fairy gardens, path leading to creek.
