Kent Restoring the original elegance of this lovely NW Washington home was our mission. Twenty tons of debris later, six bathrooms, a dining room, a mud room and the kitchen have been stripped to the studs and rebuilt. With sleek modern seating, the style is hip. But, antiques scattered throughout ground our design in heritage. A coffered ceiling and taller windows added to the new dining room provide architectural interest. A traditional “bumped out” bank of windows replaced the 1970’s addition in the old kitchen. Afternoon sun now floods the beautiful new kitchen with light. The reclaimed beam over the new cooking area paired with stainless pantries and knotty alder cabinets combine city elegance and rustic charm. Rugged refinement is the feeling when entering the new mud room. Linen, cotton, leather and wool create visual texture in this simple yet complex master bedroom.
