Spindrift traditional-hall


This Gambrel style residence has been completely upgraded to satisfy todays’ standards while restoring and reinforcing the original 1885 design. It began as a Summer Cottage accessible by train from Boston, and is now a year round residence. The essence of the structure was maintained, while enhancing every detail. The breadth of craftsmanship is evident throughout the home resulting in a comfortable and embellished aesthetic.

Thanks for your question. The stain was chosen on site and we don't have documentation on the name.

Interesting question Kgrun13. I believe it was a little bit of trial and error and working with the contractor, but you have the right idea. The glass transom was framed in the trim on site. It's actually set a little back from the door trim. Trim was painted after installation.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Color Your Home's View With Stained Glass
Why not add a little whimsy over a door? Note how the beach colors here bounce right off the crisp white of the walls. What a great way to establish a tone and palette for a house.
