Prior to their purchase of this mill worker’s residence, an earlier renovation
had misinterpreted the original voice of our client’s home. In a fearless,
sweeping process of removing stone from ground to roof outside – together we
began to decipher and restore its quietly grand character.
The timeworn finish of an antique fireplace surround reset the tone inside. As it was meticulously cleaned without agitating the surface, custom cabinetry and millwork was crafted in a comfortably distressed milk paint finish - further harmonizing the old with the new. Natural daylight and carefully selected hardware by the homeowner added further flattery to the project, one of several collaborations here. See the project phases here.
