the kitchen

Cable lighting offset by a reclaimed wood ceiling makes this kitchen a unique mix of old and new. We wanted to make sure the earthy wood elements popped amongst the strong white backdrop.

the dining area

Reclaimed accordion doors open up into the dining area where we continue our appreciation for earthy materials. The antique farm table is set off by mid-century chairs and a white plaster chandelier, giving the room a collected and playful tone. 


the livingroom

This room served as a showcase to house some of the owners favorite pieces, as well as an inviting and comfortable place to gather with friends and family. The exposed ceiling framing gives the room more interest and texture, without overshadowing the rest. 



A truly special space in the home, tucked under the main staircase. Because of its small footprint, we wanted to make sure it had plenty of character and charm. Arguably the centerpiece of the space is a wall of boards saved from a third floor closet, which had been wallpapered with a local newspaper from 1814.

The staircase structure and original wallboards were exposed and painted white to show off their rough texture. The floating vanity was built from the old kitchen counter and fit with a small cast iron sink.
