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.

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.
