In collaboration with renowned architect, Frank Neely, we completely renovated this 1920s Brookhaven home from the ground up. The homeowners are a family of five who tasked us with the project of creating a space that not only is great for entertaining, but is also functional for their daily lives. Many year and months have been spent renovating, planning and designing this historic residence, and we are so thrilled to share the final photographs of this project with you all.
Right off of the foyer of the home is the living room and study (pictured above). It was very important to us and the homeowners to bring fresh life into this home while also honoring and highlighting its historic elements. One of our favorite aspects of this residence is the ceiling molding in the living room; One hundred year old molds were used to create this beautiful architectural statement. Right off of the living room is the study, which was painted Farrow & Ball Card Room Green. Built-in cabinetry host a cigar humidor and liquor cabinet, and a custom roman shade made with Cowtan and Tout fabric ties it all together.
The formal dining room was thoughtfully designed with curated antiques, heirlooms, and entertaining essentials for the family’s guests. The silk De Gournay wallpaper pairs beautifully with an antique chandelier and dining table sourced from Belgium. The buffet is a family heirloom, adding a personal touch to this lovely and light room.
With the kitchen being the heart of the home, we opted to transition the blues and greens from the rest of the house into this space in a more casual way. The Specialty Tile backsplash and counter stools upholstered in a Lee Jofa fabric and an Osborne & Little faux leather add just the right amount of color to this light and bright space. Incorporating these softer hues create a serene environment, allowing the family to relax and unwind. This space was created to be multi-functional, with areas for the kids to hang out and do their homework, and plenty of space to prep, cook, clean, and entertain close friends and family.
