MIDCENTURY REMODEL

This was a remodel of a 1940's era home.  

In an effort to bring this home up to date with 21st century lifestyle, we made some structural changes to make the floor plan more open.  

  • White grasscloth in the living area continues down the hallway to add to the brightness that updated lighting provides and also adds a subtle texture that accentuates the texture of the original wood floors.  
  • Minimal modern furnishings and lighting were selected with respect to the homes era in today's lifestyle.

  • The opening from the small entry was widened to expand that space into the living room and provide room for an inherited hall tree.  
  • We removed a wall between the kitchen and breakfast area - no more stuffy kitchen!

 In order to maximize space, I drafted new plans for the bathrooms - we started from scratch!

The finish out of each bathroom was crucial - we wanted materials that were luxe and interesting, but we needed them to stand the test of time, too.

When we were finished, both the homeowners and I were overjoyed at what we'd created. Pretty cool, don't you think?
