Stylish • Sophisticated • Cozy • Airy • Modern

This house, which was built in the 1920s, was a challenge not just because of its “maturity.” We also needed to blend two very different design styles to keep everyone happy: Denise wanted an artsy vibe, while her husband Massimo preferred to keep things clean and simple. So we settled on a transitional approach—which is basically a blend of everything—as we gutted the kitchen, opened up the living room, and dusted off some of the home’s charming original features.

Before & After


In addition to preserving this decorative panel by the staircase, we discovered a window that you could only see from the outside on the opposite side of the room. So we “let it shine” on the inside and replaced that window with another rose panel from the front closet—this now has a literal pair of rose-colored glasses.


Because it’s situated by the dining table rather than in the living room, the home’s upgraded fireplace sets the scene for cozy family dinners. Not every fireplace can warm up a space both figuratively and literally!


The kitchen’s seating setup had to be tweaked mid-renovation due to the addition of the powder room. We still managed to fit three chairs at the kitchen island, plus a bank of cabinets for extra storage nearby—the result is one of the most functional spaces in the house.
