Living Room Addition in Tudor Style Home

This traditional Tudor style home located in Glencoe desperately needed updating to better accommodate the lifestyle of a young and active family. Originally built in the 1920’s, the homeowners sought to add additional living space on the first and second floors that would seamlessly blend with the existing historic architecture.
They began working with Normandy Designer Vince Weber to create the plans that would eventually become their newly remodeled home. “The original layout of the house was typical in many ways of what one finds in vintage homes,” says Vince. “The homeowners wanted to ensure that the charm of these spaces was not diminished with the addition and that the whole house would blend seamlessly once completed.”

One of the family’s requests was to enlarge the kitchen to create a multi-functional space that would allow for better cooking functionality, eating, entertaining, and doing homework. The family also wanted an informal gathering area that was connected to the kitchen but still defined as a separate room. A new powder room, home office and mudroom on the first floor and a true master suite on the second floor rounded out the changes that brought 21st century amenities and spaces to this lovely older home.

Normandy Designer Vince Weber understood that in a renovation of this type, the success of the project would involve a great deal of focus on the details. “Careful consideration of scale and proportion of these new rooms was paramount in keeping the project true to the home’s original compartmentalized design,” says Vince. “In addition to feeling proportionate, these new spaces needed to mimic the details of the existing home that included dark stained millwork, decorative beams, rich hardwood floors, and antique light fixtures.” The exterior details received the same special attention with matching clay tile chimney caps, a smooth stucco exterior, cedar trim detailing and copper gutters and downspouts.

The resulting project so seamlessly blends the old and new spaces, that it is virtually impossible to tell which part of the home was original and which is the addition. The successful updating of this vintage home enhanced, rather than diminished, the antique nature of the home and was recognized nationally by industry peers with a 2011 Master Design Award.

Wood types? - Hello! I understand that the stain blends were likely custom, but do you happen to know of the trim and doors were red oak like the floor vs some other contrasting hardwood? Thanks!

I've looked through the files for this project but was unable to locate the details regarding the wood species that was used to trim the doors and other areas. The designer for this project, Vince Weber, shared that the trim was not oak, but did not recall the exact species that was used. In this case, we were adding on to a very old home and the woodwork needed to match the rest of the home, but I am unable to locate the details on exactly what wood species was used here in order to match the existing trim in the rest of the home.

Tudor? - Umm, no... this is clearly American Colonial/Federalist.

Thanks Andrea, the exterior of the home has more of a Tudor style, but I can certainly see how this photo evokes thoughts of the Colonial style.

These chairs were sourced by the homeowner, so unfortunately I do not have any details on the upholstery that I can share with you. I'm very sorry that I do not have more information, but perhaps you can work with a boutique fabric supplier to find something similar for your furniture. Best of luck!

I'm very sorry to say that we do not have a record of the trim stain color or paint color for this project. Being that this was an addition to a very old home, I would suspect that the paint and trim colors were likely a custom color to match the existing colors.

This photo is meant to showcase the newly added room to the home, unfortunately at the time this photo was taken the homeowner had not yet been able to fully furnish the new space. Our intention to include this photo was to share the architectural details (beams, fireplace, etc) that make the room itself unique and beautiful.

floor stain - what color stain was used on this floor? was it red oak wood?

A custom stain blend is when the designer works with the floor finisher to develop a custom color on the spot, sometimes adding red, other times adding brown or other colors, but the result is a custom color for the space that doesn't have any prescribed name or formula available. I'm sorry that I don't have better information that would allow you to replicate this particular shade, but hopefully you can work with your finisher to develop a color that works well for your floors.

true but when a poly or varnish goes over it, It changes the color. At least to know if reds where added because I dont want red.
