Inside, on the main level, the details, colors, and furniture were unified to make the spaces feel connected and consequential. A dark and disconnected original kitchen was transformed into a bright, functional hub of activity in a now sunlit-filled space. Intricate original trim details juxtapose with clean, modern cabinetry in soft blues and crisp, linear white oak. A thoughtful breakfast nook and a spacious island provide areas for an active family to gather throughout the day. Unused corners are now functional spaces for office work, entertainment, and storage. A simple corridor becomes a drop zone for coats, shoes, and supplies. A small powder room is hidden behind a series of seamless doors made to look like an extension of the surrounding walls. Targeted updating on the rest of the main level included floor finishes, additional insulation, architectural details, furniture design, and lighting.
On the second level, specific programmatic updates improved the sense of openness in a home comprised of small rooms and corridors. At the top of the stairs, the space opens up to a new room filled with south light for sitting or doing homework. An upstairs bedroom and shared kids’ bathroom was also updated.
