This room was part of a second-floor renovation in a 1928 English cottage. Wall to wall carpet was removed to reveal original fir floors. Despite being heavily worn and stained in several spots, the floors were refinished, and the clients embraced the story told by each imperfection. A single closet door was expanded to two which allows for better access to a modest shared closet. A generously sized door was added for access to attic crawlspace that runs the full length of the home which provides ample storage for the family.
Kristyn honored the home’s English style by incorporating traditional v-groove paneling, which was painted to match the millwork, doors and windows the same deep, sea blue. Unlacquered brass window hardware and electrical plates paired with original door hardware are considered details that make the room feel original to the home.
For this project, Kristyn also designed the interior furnishings and soft goods.
