“Every space was designed to bridge the historic value of the home with the conveniences of modern living.”
Natural wood and stone materials with pronounced grain and veining created dramatic focal points throughout the home.
The objective of every room was to create a single powerful emotion by leaving the spaces fresh and light and by injecting a bold, memorable feature such as a uexpected tile, exotic stone, perforated metal or patterned wood.
“The house also has a lot of modern technology: built-in speakers connected to a Sonos system, a front door and security system from Ring and all the lights in the house can be controlled from apps on your phone.”
