Many couples favor a traditional home— cozy, but light and airy. Vicki Sherman and Dr. David Waggoner – both retired from Monroe Community College – she as an administrator and he as a Professor of Chemistry, designed their home with an eclectic style and a comfortable vibe with the help of Carolyn Byersmith from Decorating Den who assisted with the kitchen and great room.

Unique pendant lighting and wall accessories finish the design to produce an inviting atmosphere for both everyday living and entertaining.
