Touching every surface, the designer’s goal was to make it functional and modernize the aesthetic while maintaining its historical integrity and architectural details.

The design team’s most significant challenge was managing scope as the clients added more and more to the project. They worked hard to strike the right balance between the home’s traditional architectural character and new contemporary elements​. This was especially true in updating the home’s heating system​. It required matching millwork and hardwoods throughout the home. 

They combined several rooms on the second floor to make a primary ensuite and a guest suite. Moving plumbing supply lines from the second story is always challenging in a home of this age.

The clients wanted a sizable primary bathroom and a boutique-style closet. Merging the primary bath, hall bath and bedroom provided them with the space to deliver the primary suite. 

They combined the sleeping porch on the second-floor guest suite with the second bedroom. The existing closet and part of the bedroom were used to add a full ensuite bathroom for guests.

In the kitchen, they patch-painted the cabinets, replaced the doors and drawer fronts, and put on new hardware. A new sink and faucet give the space an updated look and more space for dishes.​ A new island provides additional seating and in-drawer accessories.

They revamped the mudroom into a butler’s pantry and updated the laundry room and powder bathroom at the home’s back entry. The cabinets are walnut with a Guinness finish, and the base cabinetry has newels that match the kitchen island.
