While most of the furniture and decor remains the same in this 1895 home it has transformed to reflect the beauty of the family that lives here. When we first visited this home, it was inspiring to hear our clients talk about the pieces they wanted to keep throughout the house. From family heirlooms, pieces they made, and treasures they thoughtfully collected. Even though you can't see inside the dining room hutch it is full of wonderful objects.  The antique chandelier is a piece they found and if you look closely in the after photos you can see other stunning lighting in the kitchen.  A few other unique pieces they had in this room was a vintage barber chair that we included in "bar serving corner", a grenade launcher above the door when you come through the entrance, and a lamp our client made out of old electrical circuits.

In this post we are mostly focusing on the dining room and one piece from the living room as it is shown in the after photos. Below are a few angles of the dining room when we arrived for our first consultation. Including their wonderful dog Bullet who kept us company on our site visits. 





































Even though there was a clear design esthetic to meet, we also needed to rework furniture placement and storage between the rooms.  From this room we moved the art storage into an unused corner of their kitchen and made a proper place for their child to do artwork including decorative hanging storage baskets on the wall for easy access and a large paper roll hung with leather straps. 

We had a ton of fun shopping for unique pieces that would blend seamlessly.  Here are a few toy storage options we considered for their living room.  While most of the shopping was at antique stores, vintage and flea markets the chosen toy storage actually was acquired from a local boutique using it as product storage.  Trunks are one option we looked at as they are low for kids to access.  Although, we were worried about usability due to the age of the trunks and also safety for a young child using them.  The retro storage cubes were hard to pass up, but we really wanted more concealed storage as the room already had lots of open storage. 













 The dining room has only a few new pieces, the seating and some styling accessories.  The main changes in this room are the chandelier placement, adding picture frame molding, paint, and refinishing furniture.  Here are a few photos showing the behind the scenes while the client was away. The first photo shows the electrical changes and the walls being skim coated.  The second shows the picture frame molding being installed. 













And now the stunning library desk they use as a dining room table is a statement surrounded by modern chrome seating (linked in the finished photos).  All of the details in these small changes made a huge impact to this home.  Please reach out if you have any questions.
