According to the article, Smith bought the 1930's era home in the Fontainebleau neighborhood. Describing the renovation, Keith Marshall writes, "Gone are the paneled front door and the sinuous lines of ultramarine blue that outlined the home's neo-classical pediment. Now, a clean-lined gas lantern fills the space above a new, charcoal-framed front door that enlivens the all-white facade."
The interior is as stunning as the exterior. Apparently, the staircase is the only original feature that remains in the house. Out with the old, in with a minimalist transformation!
