Tudor Treat

In this Tudor renovation, the clients were open to changes but did not want to eliminate any existing walls on the main level, as they enjoyed the quaint separation of spaces. To fulfill their vision, the project team reimagined the floor plan to find places for enhanced functionality while preserving the home’s original character.

On the wishlist was a full powder bath on the main level, so the design team replaced what was a small breakfast room to add that—plus a butler’s pantry—into the floor plan. The kitchen underwent a total rework, eliminating the bulky island in favor of a space-saving peninsula for seating. Another new yet unexpected addition is the stunning mahogany hutch, designed to store all the homeowner’s serving ware. The remaining cabinetry is painted a bold yet muted green that complements the creamy, four-by-four-inch backsplash tile and lovely dark-toned quartz countertops. The team incorporated stunning new lighting to complete the kitchen’s fresh look.

Meanwhile, the updated butler’s pantry features a darker shade of green and incorporates arched built-ins with an antique mirror and lighting for a dramatic focal point. The contractor also recreated the cove ceiling detail that had been a part of the old breakfast nook. In the nearby powder bath, an iconic William Morris wallpaper and an adorable pendant light adorn the space. 

Additional strategic space swaps improved the second-floor layout, including enhancements to the primary suite and hall bath.
