new beginnings This blended Canadian family moved to their Ohio and engaged on
a full renovation to accommodate a growing family on the go.
The four-story home was restructured from top to bottom, creating intentional space for all aspects of the family’s lifestyle including kids rooms and a third-floor teen suite.
A once dark and dismal kitchen turned seaside retreat. Tranquil grays and neutrals with moments of light blue marble washed over the interior. Custom subzero freezer columns joined a quartzite countertop and galley sink.
The living room received a new treatment of molding, millwork and paneling and custom fireplace.
The main floor powder room is a time for play—finished with zebra marble tile, handmade glass-blown pendants and original window.
Ascending to the second level in the master suite, an Art TV sits above a custom mantle to maintain a clean, yet functional space.
A custom tile runner an introduction to the more elaborate floor-to-ceiling tile work that awaits inside the master bath. The space was reconfigured to accommodate a wet room—a place for the tub and shower to live together. White paint was chosen for trim and cabinetry, creating a sense of continuity throughout the space and an aura of openness.
In the children’s room, Dawn breaks the tranquil palette for a moment of play—opting for a saturated bubblegum color and on-suite bath tile.
Renovation to date includes living room, powder room, kitchen, master suite and children’s room.
