classically composed Eight years ago, a small but growing family acquired a historic Cleveland Heights Tudor begging for a brightened interior fit for modern living.
Discerning an appropriate white that would lift the interior while preserving the home’s historic qualities was key—serving as a foundation for the transitional style approach to come.
The Master Suite transformed to modern day retreat from the couple’s active lifestyles. The space was reconfigured to make way for the master bedroom, spa bath and walk-in closet. Luxury quartzite finished the vanity, shower and fireplace.
Walls washed with calming whites, curved angular fixtures, and custom tile work make for a luxurious spa bath fit for rest and relaxation.
A custom walk-in closet was crafted to house the couple’s unique finds—the husband’s watch collection and a special hamper for workout gear.
Retreating down to the main level is a historic spectacle. An antique staircase meets a bubble chandelier for a playful display.
Each inch of space considered--a small custom-built powder room sits in the corner of the foyer. A reimagined foyer leads into bright and airy living and dining rooms.
By choice, the kitchen and dining spaces are muted in tone. Dawn envisioned a space that tells a tale of two—mixing old charm with modern pleasure. To create depth, Dawn opened walls and raised ceilings and left a butler’s pantry untouched for its historic appeal. The custom, locally-made island and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry accommodate the active, growing family.
Off the side entrance, a beautifully-functional mudroom was added. Custom cabinetry sourced to house the radiators and message board for keeping connected while on the go. Renovation included master suite, foyer, powder room, living and dining rooms, kitchen and mudroom.
