Red-toned woodwork in a darker shade in a simple yet elegant style is used throughout the first floor, including the kitchen, where it's accented by copper hardware. The wood is broken up by black stone counters, cream subway tile backsplash, and a honey-toned hardwood floor. There's a large oblong octagonal island and a farmhouse sink.

As the parents of three children, the owners’ goals for the remodel were simple: they wanted to improve the connection between the kitchen and family room, allowing the family to better interact with each other. The family also desired a larger living area and a more functional back entry and closet that can accommodate the entire family at once.

The improved connection between the kitchen and family room was achieved through the use of columns, which divide the spaces into distinct rooms and creating an open living area. The scale of the light-filled addition was carefully considered to allow for backyard space and maintain the historic character of the house.

It was important to the clients to use salvaged materials, where possible. The powder room makes use of salvaged wainscoting, medicine cabinet, sink, lavatory cabinet, and antique light fixtures, all taken from the original house.

The kitchen's storage wall features open shelves for cookbooks, cabinets with leaded glass for display, a place for smaller appliances, and a fridge hidden behind matching cabinet panels.
The breakfast room, visually divided from the kitchen by a brick pillar, has bench seating, and shows off the botanical wallpaper in muted greens, ivories, and reds. This picture shows off the kitchen's antiqued brass pendant lighting with glass shades.
The view from the butler's pantry into the kitchen shows off the clever use of columns, half-walls, and large openings to divide an open space without closing anything off.
The main cabinet wall of the butler's pantry is sage green, contrasting nicely with the other woodwork, and helping to delineate the different areas of an open space.
The family room has cream walls, leaded windows over a wall of built-ins, including the entertainment center, and a wall of sash windows, mirroring those you can just glimpse in the dining room.
The mudroom features plenty of sage green cabinetry and a different botanical wallpaper in similar shades to the kitchen, along with an earth-toned hex tile floor.
The powder room matches the mudroom. The vanity top matches the kitchen, and the sink is metal, oval, and underhung.
