A Sanctuary in the Woods

A Family Retreat

When our client first purchased her home, built in 1926, she knew that she wanted it to become a sanctuary. This house, nestled in the woods, would also need to be the perfect place to host friends and family for dinner and weekends away from the hustle and bustle of life. With a personal aesthetic that mixes clean traditional lines, midcentury design, and traditional antiques, we knew that we could create the perfect home for this client!

Keeping her tastes in mind, we designed a mudroom with vibrant wallpaper and antique pieces from around the world. We knew the kitchen and dining room would be the focal points of the house. To that end we created a gourmet kitchen with top of the line appliances, custom blown glass light fixtures, and a live-edge, wood island that would serve as the perfect place to gather. In the dining room we went a bit more classic, with a classic buffet and chandelier but we couldn’t resist adding playful touches to this more traditional space. We used lime green velvet for the dining chairs’ upholstery and selected a colorful wallpaper to finish the room. In the master bathroom, we wanted to create the ultimate place for our client to find serenity. We installed mahogany cabinets with marble countertops and classic, brushed brass fixtures to set the tone for the rest of the spa-like space. By the end of the remodel, we had created the ultimate get-away for our client, right in her own home.
