graceful neutrals Designer, Dawn met the owners of the Colby residence during her college days. After living in their Shaker Heights residence for nearly a decade, they reached out to their dear friend to help them bring it to life.
low-country roots Having grown up in the south, the owner wanted to infuse a little tradition into the design. Walls were moved, fireplaces reconstructed and architectural millwork installed. A vintage vent that once lived in a Cleveland mansion on Millionaires' Row was reimagined as a fireplace screen.
one room at a time The transformation took place over the course of a few years. Each room is multi-purpose, like a living room intended to hold pretty things and be a cozy family space as well. Continuity was achieved through color and tone. Renovation included entry-way, dining room, master bath, family room, kitchen, living room and multiple bedrooms.
