Before the remodel, this stairway landing was, in Sam's words, awkward as hell. But now, with the addition of oversize square poufs and new finishes, it's the most popular gathering spot in the house. "We love the wallpaper," says April. "It gave us the idea to use silver and gold throughout the interior. It's actually peeling and flaking." The wallpaper is a rugged backdrop for the couple's frame collection, trophies of many flea market expeditions. "They were empty when we bought them, but we got the idea to put quirky things in them," says April. Today, they surround everything from a Kewpie doll to a jackalope head.
