A restored classic Tudor in Washington

Posted on Thu, 13 May 2021 by KiM

Woodwork that should never EVERRRRRRRR be painted over. Lisa Staton doing god’s work and NOT giving in to painting out such beauty. AMEN. This classic Tudor home was a diamond in the rough when our clients acquired it. It had all of its original charm intact: classic oak paneling, leaded glass windows and 1920’s detailing throughout. Our clients choose to restore the classic bones of the home while updating all systems for modern family living. All bathrooms and the kitchen were completely gutted and re-worked. Careful attention was paid to repeating original details in newly renovated areas, including a leaded glass transom between breakfast room and kitchen and custom commissioned cabinets for the kitchen that match original library paneling. Windows were meticulously restored rather than replaced. And much original lighting from the house was re-wired and re-installed. For furnishings we chose to pair classic pieces with more modern art and shapes. Repeated throughout the house is a rhythm of black and white. We then married grays and blues with warmer woods and vintage rugs and textiles. (Photos: Haris Kenjar)
