Tour a Beautiful Historic Home Reimagined With Glamour
These Pittsburgh homeowners had lived in their 100-year-old home for more than 20 years and raised their kids there before deciding to renovate. They found Florida designer Andrea Martoccia-Fava of Motivo Home on Houzz and hired her to “reinvigorate the spaces that they use and love the most,” she says.
A major focus was the kitchen, where Martoccia-Fava took down a wall to expand the space to fit double islands. She also relocated the range to take in views of a back garden and koi pond. Beautiful quartzite countertops, gold finishes, a high-gloss ceiling, rich woods and a bank of green cabinets deliver glamorous style while staying true to the history of the home.
Martoccia-Fava used Houzz Pro software to coordinate with her clients and design team for the project, which also included elegant but cozy updates to the living room and main bedroom.
