"Where do you keep your NyQuil?"As she wrestled with the tamper-resistant, child-proof cap, I steered her back toward the kitchen and the benign safety of flour."I promise it's just this one time," she explained, attempting to saw through the lid with a Ginsu knife.

When Joan Develin Coley was named president of Western Maryland College last year, the white Queen Anne-style president's house on the school's Westminster campus was dark and outdated. Coley wanted to renovate the 19th-century house, keeping its historic character and sense of formality while reflecting her taste for lots of light, simple design and contemporary style. During the past year, the 5,600- square-foot house has undergone a thorough $250,000 renovation and restoration, inside and out. In the process, the project caught the eye of the cable network House and Garden Television.
