Schwartz and Architecture

This 7,000 square foot renovation and addition maintains the graciousness and carefully-proportioned spaces of the historic 1907 home. The new construction includes a kitchen and family living area, a master bedroom suite, and a fourth floor dormer expansion. The subtle palette of materials, extensive built-in cabinetry, and careful integration of modern detailing and design, together create a fresh interpretation of the original design.

Lily Gahagan added this to Tile Style: Spotlight on Heath Ceramics
A fern green accent wall is a cool respite for the eye in a kitchen filled with warm wood tones.
