Then and Now

This house merges fine craftsmanship with today's trends



Few homes highlight vintage style as dramatically as this. An updated interpretation of the traditional craftsman style, the home distinctive vintage-style complement today’s material trends, including modern detailing of mosaic glass tile, ceramic tile, and a cool color palate. This home’s transitional design strives for a perfect blend of old and new, formal and informal, cozy living and open entertainment space.






The trim is stained to complement subtle earth-tone walls. The stained trim appeals to a much more contemporary house along with the traditional style accommodates transitional furnishings for a variety of lifestyles. And although the architectural detailing is consistent throughout the house, the interior is furnished with a variety of furniture styles, from sofas to modern sectionals.

The open main level living areas and staircase have a generous scale that creates a strong sense of arrival. The drama is reinforced by plentiful light that emerges from the open floor plan and large number of windows. The open staircase was designed to create a sense of openness while providing light and retaining the sense of a more traditional home. The main level living areas are like a blank canvas: an open and versatile floor plan, providing easy flow between rooms. The open kitchen, dining, and living room lead to a mudroom and outdoor retreat off the back of the house. Because the rooms are open to one another, it was important to have design continuity. The creative blending of modern simplicity and traditional craftsmanship work to create a bold and inviting home.
