I remember the first day I walked into this home…I thought I’d made a wrong turn and was in Greenfield Village! It was way too literal in its colonial direction. Thankfully, my wonderful clients agreed--They wanted a more modern feel. We got rid of the heavy drapery, reupholstered their settee, painted the woodwork a darker color so it would pop, and added new, clean-lined furniture and accessories to complement what they already had. Provided it works, we love to re-use pieces our clients already own; the result is totally fresh, but familiar and comfortable for them.
