Minnesota Private Residence

http://www.cookarchitectural.com
Perched on wooded hilltop, this historical estate home was thoughtfully restored and expanded, addressing the modern needs of a large family and incorporating the unique style of its owners. The design is teeming with custom details including a porte cochère and fox head rain spouts, providing references to the historical narrative of the site’s long history.

Thank you for your interest in our project , unfortunately our records do not have that information in them, but we used a porcelain tile that looks like French limestone and lagos azul, 18”x18” in the kitchen of this home, in case you like that also.

Thank you for your interest in our project, these stairs are original to the house and built in 1927. Unfortunately we do not have dimensions in our records.

Rachel, Thank you for your interest in our project. The table was either something the homeowner already had or was selected by their interior designer. The interior designer was RLH Studio located in Minneapolis.

Do you have a photo taken from the front door into the house that you would be able to share? - I would like to see how the area under the stairs was tied into the theme. Thank-you!

Thank you for your interest in our project. This staircase was built original to the house in the 1920's. Unfortunately we do not know the manufacturer.

Beautiful stairs. I understand these stairs are original but I have a - similar length of railing planned at 12 steps and we are also using a wood handrail and spindles.Our stair company is insisting we use a post midway down instead of just spindles because they say we will have flex in the handrail without it.Can you tell me how this look was achieved and how the strength is maintained without the use of the extra post since I really prefer this look.Thanks so much.

Who is the manufacturer of this rug? - what is the make of this rug. I have looked through tons of catalogs of different rug manufacturers and find nothing like it. Thought maybe Fabrica, but nothing like it there.
