Beverly Sellers put her two loves art and
decorating to work in her townhouse on Warehams Pond in Kingsmill.
A painting above the fireplace in the living room was done by
York County artist Lefty Majher.
Every wall, every tabletop, every available space features paintings and sculpture done
by local and faraway artists.
"I transformed the townhouse into a home filed with my treasures that have been
collected through the years," says Beverly.
"The townhouse is done in natural, earth tone colors with lots of black."
A focal point in her living room is a large stained-glass window she took from her
former home when she moved to Kingsmill, near Colonial Williamsburg. She had the
stained-glass piece featuring a heron and cattails framed like a free-standing mirror so
it can set out in the room.
The master bathroom and bedroom each feature ceiling-high trompe loeil trees by
Williamsburg artist Jan Ledbetter. An ocelot created by Hampton sculptor Paul Morgan
welcomes guests coming through the front door; peacock sidelights flanking the front door
were designed by York County artist Charlie Marino. Williamsburg artist Hank Mook
fashioned a papier-mache elephants head for her screened porch, while trompe
loeil giraffes saunter across a wall in her kitchen.
Her love for all things beautiful extends outdoors. Flowers in hanging pots and boxes
embellish her deck. A purple hyacinth bean vine climbs over a courtyard wall for all to
"I was forced to become a townhouse gardener," she says.
Even so, she does it all with grandeur.
