Walking up to the front door of Joe and Dr. Cheryl Saul-Sehy’s Mid-Century Modern house, you can see their taste is eclectic, inviting and curated. On the front stoop, you are greeted by a black woven fixture they call “The Giant Eyelash;” it is a fixture that was acquired by mistake, but one they both now love.
