3500 SQ/FT - 4 BR, 2.5 BTH
This grand 1910 Fan house is home to an active family with 3 growing kiddos. We have had the pleasure of designing three rooms so far with names such as the "Inspiration & Innovation" (Kid's Play Room) and the "Climbing & Cranium" (Library/Family Room).
The upstairs Inspiration room received new custom designed built-ins and fireplace mantle along with fresh paint and a fun chalkboard wall in the form of a mountain range. In addition, we addressed existing electrical issues and installed new can lights, ceiling fan and furnished it with kid (and pet) friendly furnishings.
The Cranium room also received a full face-lift with a fresh coat of modern white paint and new furnishings. Our clients have a wonderful collection of books, the challenge was to fit them all in the room without taking up too much real estate. Instead of thinking outside the box, we embraced the box! Like a game of Tetris, we randomly floated cubby boxes on the wall that can be added and moved around over time. It's a playful way for the kids to be intimately involved in the collection and inspire them to read daily.
We are currently designing two more rooms so stay tuned in 2018!
