The family friendly, dynamic and spirited vibe of this home is not quite what you’d expect when the exterior is a conventional Colonial home. I LOVE the unexpected!!! When the homeowners moved into this 1920’s center hall colonial in Essex Fells, New Jersey, they envisioned a comfortable, livable home where family and friends can kick off their shoes and unwind. The brief: Repurposed rooms, reinvented family heirlooms and a riot of color and pattern equal an unfussy environment that embraces the craziness of life with three young children.
