Southwest Hills Victorian
For this historic Victorian, built in 1885, we did a complete remodel of the kitchen and furnished and decorated the rest of the house. The existing details were so exquisite and the proportions so lovely we felt that we needed to proceed with caution with everything we did. Our goal was to reflect our clients' love of modern design while being absolutely respectful of the existing architecture. The result is a space that does feel very modern and quite glamorous but with wonderful character and texture as the backdrop.
Our color palette consists of rich jewel tones, and an unlikely pale lavender that wound up being the perfect pairing with the existing warm woodwork. In the kitchen a wall of cabinetry conceals the refrigerator and a secret door that swings in to a roomy pantry. A welcoming breakfast nook with a custom table and bench of our design bridges the gap between the historical architecture and the modern furnishings. We mirrored the paneled living room, creating a bright, sparkly, welcoming space.
The senior designer for the project was Chelsie Lee.
