Classic Home gets Elegant Renovation Reminiscent of Original Design
Our homeowners purchased this home for its excellent location and great bones. They wanted to restore it to the era of its time while updating and modernizing it with the elegance it deserved. To add to our challenges, they were living out of the country during our design and renovation, but we had great communication using modern technologies to ensure we could deliver what they hoped to achieve.
We opened space to create an updated and more functional kitchen for this active family. We relocated appliances for efficiency and added an island and relocated a chimney. We had structural challenges with the sagging hardwood floors which required us to reframe floor systems. We antique finished the hardwoods reminiscent of the 1940’s.
We added wainscoting in the dining room and entry stair hallway to enhance the old-world look as well as added some arched openings to match other areas of the home. We also added custom moldings to the fireplace wall to allow it to shine as a focal point in the space, utilizing restored antique light fixtures. In the powder bath, we took down a wall that separated the stool room from the vanity to allow more space and added wainscot and a beautiful grass cloth wallpaper. The flooring is cement tile and adds to the aesthetic of the space. The finished result is stunning and truly honors the integrity of the original time period of this home.
