Garfield Avenue Family Bathroom

Quality updates to dated spaces.

This 1920’s family bathroom had gone through some significant changes over the years-some not-so-great! Going all the way back in time to the home’s specific era, classic finishes in a warm soft colors were selected to create a seamless flow with the rest of the home and, most importantly, insure style longevity. An extra pedestal sink and large grooming area were designed into the plan to make this a multi-functional space for the entire family.

Oliver Avenue Mid-Century

Mid-Century meets Millennium

Mid-Century meets the new Millennium in this modern-fusion split level renovation. No surface was left unturned. Bold neutral patterns and shapes provide a vibrant feeling no matter what room you’re stepping into. The removal of walls and eleven foot high ceilings in the kitchen and living room provide a dramatic, light-filled main floor. Custom railings and a new fireplace facade add current touches. A lower level is transformed from a windowless single room to a cozy bedroom and sitting room with sliding barn doors in Tiffany blue. A full renovation to the three-quarter bathroom finishes this level off. A cozy lounge/home office space is added to the garden level and second floor bathroom gets new fixtures and fun floor to bridge with the original wall tile. Modern white surfaces and terrific lighting throughout make this home a stand out!

Aldrich Avenue Addition

A meticulous renovation of a 1920’s Craftsman

No detail was spared (nor stone unturned, literally) in this South Minneapolis 1920’s Craftsman home-both inside and out. Major work included a small but very smart 6’x12’ addition off the back of the home including a full renovation to the kitchen allowing for much needed sunlight and a main floor powder room to be added. Above the addition, a new second floor balcony was added overlooking the meticulously landscaped backyard. Other elements in the home included an array of lovely high end natural finishes, a fresh new neutral paint palette, custom window treatments and rugs, and new vintage reproduction lighting throughout the home. A motif designed by the homeowner was used subtly throughout the entire renovation in custom stained glass windows and many iron elements.
