See how these homeowners updated their 1910 home with modern style and still kept the classic touches.
When the homeowners bought their 1910 Craftsman, they loved the classic details of the beautiful built-ins, fluted casings, and original hardwood floors. Even with the generous room sizes, they knew the house's original flow would need to be reworked to fit their lifestyle. Working with an architect, they opened up the spaces, such as the eat-in kitchen and adjacent family room, but kept the classic details.
The homeowner wanted her home to feel bright in any season. Cheery gingham and pretty floral fabrics complement the sunny yellow walls and white trim to set a delightful tone in their family room.
A perfect place for the kids to do homework, the family room is complete with a built-in work center.
The homeowner displays her family's collection of green milk glass in a refinished antique china hutch.
Delicate sheer treatments grace the windows in the dining room. Keeping with the classic style of the 1910 Craftsman, the homeowners left original pieces such as the radiator.
Neutral tones create a cozy getaway in this refined master bedroom. The homeowners chose chic blue linens layered with patterned pillows.
To add to the cozy feel of this bedroom, a group of seashells was tucked under a glass vase for a simple bedroom accessory.
