Set for the Holidays


Published:

The dining room table is set and ready for a rich tradition of intimate holiday entertaining at Christina and Jerome Stehly’s home in Point Loma. The Stehly’s antique dining table sits on planked dark Brazilian walnut floors, and is surrounded by antiqued soft green walls. As the sun sets outside, candlelight reflecting from the hand-hewn, gold-foil infused, Venetian plaster wall inset, along with soft lighting from the dining room’s antique chandelier, bathes the room in a calming glow. For their frequent family get-togethers of up to 70 people, the kitchen and family room open onto a large, party-size patio. For more on this home designed by award-winning architect Kevin deFreitas, turn to page 80.
