Irvington Prairie Craftsman Whole House
The clients of this Irvington neighborhood prairie style craftsman sought to update their entire home to add more functionality and to fit their personal style. They also wanted to retain the integrity of the home’s historical elements and show off its original features. While the home was mostly in its original shape, the kitchen had been remodeled awhile ago and was dated. It was in need of a more modern update to better blend in with the home and the Client’s lifestyle and taste. In the library and living room, the home’s original wood finish was tirelessly restored and brought back to it’s original shape and new custom paneling and built-ins were added in the same style to blend in seamlessly. One of Chelly’s favorite historical features of the home was the discovery that there was once a dumbwaiter, which was restored with a new glass door and molding to match the rest of the home. The original plaster moldings and cornices were in great condition and left untouched.
This project was a fabulous collaboration between the clients, the very talented folks at Arciform who built it, Versatile Wood Products who produced the custom designed shelving, and cabinetry; and Lord Design who did the interior decorating.
