Typical of most new homeowners, our clients realized that their newly purchased 1890s Shingle Style Victorian home would need some updates to better suit their lifestyle. LDa was able to provide both architectural and interior design services simultaneously, resulting in a unified aesthetic and efficiently planned renovation. This included architectural enhancements, new interior finishes and furnishings, and minor layout adjustments throughout the home.

The existing kitchen was in good condition but needed a bit of a face lift. Cabinet doors and drawer fronts were refinished, and the existing kitchen island was modified to accommodate better seating for the family. A new, custom-made pantry was created to house utilitarian items. The newly tiled backsplash, decorative lighting, and countertops finish the updated look. The family room, located adjacent to the kitchen, suffered from a lack of clarity of program. A built-in bench was added to the existing bay window to establish the new breakfast area, and new furniture was selected to create an informal gathering space. Seating was organized to focus on the view to the yard and the new wall-mounted TV. Additional paneling and trim added architectural detail that corresponds with the kitchen and the rest of the house. Design of the master bathroom evolved around a new large, central, glass-enclosed shower with a marble feature wall. A new full length vanity, running the width of the room, provides more counter space. Additional windows were added along the shower wall for much needed daylight and ventilation. The resulting bathroom is warm, and relaxing – a private retreat.
