A charming circa 1920′s stone cottage recently became the setting for a client’s new lifestyle. The cottage has a totally different ambiance than her previous homes and was fun and challenging to transform the vintage cottage into an up-to-date home.
Stained glass windows, hardwood floors and high ceilings were some of the unique features of this home. The whole house was completely repainted inside and out. We selected a rich brown for the the fireplace and vaulted beams, and kept the trim and walls neutral. The color palette for the furnishings included soft blues, neutrals, and yellow/gold tones.
New chandeliers in the living, dining, and breakfast rooms add warmth throughout the house. This one is made of wood and iron and was stunning in person!
A family antique clock fits perfectly on a small wall leading to the study, while the longer wall houses a practical and beautiful TV cabinet that is well-scaled to the room.
Sheers lighten and soften the front rooms. In the dining room, neutral side chairs paired with two patterned host chairs create an inviting ambiance for entertaining.
Since this vintage cottage lacked ample book storage space, we suggested adding wall-to-wall bookshelves to the original den, making it a functional home office.
In the breakfast nook, we used her fabulous yellow abstract art piece and upholstered chairs and iron bench to create a cozy eating space.
The master bedroom, with two window walls is feminine and airy with new sheers and elegant accent pillows.
The former laundry room was converted into a larger master bath and the former master bath became a larger master closet. Changing the layout in this way created a luxurious and relaxing master suite.
