THE GOAL: A CLASSIC CHARACTER HOME, WITH A MODERN TWIST

It may be true that I have a bit of an A-type personality that shines through from time to time and this A-type personality really values planning ahead. First, I needed to come up with a theme for this house, which is really a mood or feel that I wanted to achieve with this house. We decided to go with 'a classic character home, with a modern twist'. We wanted to embrace the character of this home, but include some features that bring this house into the modern day. 


Goals to embrace the character: 

  • Refinish the original hardwood floors 

  • Add crown moulding 

  • Add a farm-style sink and classic faucets 

  • Expose the brick chimney in the kitchen

  • Choose pieces throughout the house that have modest details on them to compliment the era of the house 

  • Choose paint colours that embrace the age of the house, but create a modern and refreshing look for this house. 

 

Goals to add a modern twist: 

  • New white cabinets 

  • Granite countertops 

  • Stainless steel appliances 

  • Remove the wall between the living room and kitchen to create an open-concept 

  • Add a walk-in closet to the master bedroom

  • Make the bathroom more spacious
