This Dutch Colonial Revival home built in 1925 has original oak hardwood floors, as well as stonework with original Wissahickon Schist. We worked with these existing elements to create a sophisticated space for the homeowners. They wanted something a bit more fresh and modern than they’d previously had. Contrast between new and old is one of our favorite juxtapositions with interior design, so it gave great opportunity to bring in a couple contemporary pieces and reinforce existing unpolished elements. Carrera marble was one of the nicest touches and rustic finishes versus geometric shapes help define the elegance of the space in a clean and soft way as well.
We designed custom drapes, shades, and brought in new lighting in more than one space. The dining room and kitchen got some attention with regard to finishes, hardware, accessories, and lighting. Mixed metals create a dynamic, yet cohesive design that the clients are very fond of. Vintage leather Chesterfield chairs, blue velvet, Carrera marble, geometric patterns and rustic wood tones all intermingle to formulate a pleasant and energetic space.
