I will always be a fan of mid-century style homes. Their open concept, angled ceilings and large windows make for such dramatic spaces. This home was built in 1955 and had never been renovated. Mark Ashby Design and Rick +Cindy Black Architects worked together to bring this home back to life, adding terrazzo floors throughout, redesigned the kitchen + sunken den + bathrooms and added a bathing sunroom.

This restored 1843 carriage house in Charleston, South Carolina is so beautiful I could cry. I don’t care in the slightest what the main house looks like I’m so smitten by the beauty of this. By G.P. Schafer Architect.
When vintage meets bohemian meets traditional in a cabin-like, autumn setting. This 3800 sq ft home in Marin County (San Francisco Bay area) was renovated and expanded by G.P. Schafer Architect, who retained the original 1870’s cabin elements. It is so inviting and full of charm. I could not love this more. Interior design by Rita Konig.
I’m dead. This home is absolutely incredible. Sooooo much space! I can’t even imagine. Set within 27 acres of grounds including two lakes and a wood. The property’s immaculate facade gives an indication of the extensive renovation works which have transformed the house from an almost derelict pile to the exceptional family home it is today. Arranged over three floors, this home is approx 8,000 sq ft in total and boasts six bedrooms all en-suite, a gym, three reception rooms, a large dining room and open plan kitchen and breakfast room. The impressive entrance hall has a large format checkerboard floor made from highly polished stone, and high ceilings with exposed oak beams. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory.
A renovation of a duplex in a Brooklyn townhouse that went oh so very right. The architectural details in this home are spectacular. A renovation of a renovation. The lower duplex of a Clinton Hill townhouse was purchased somewhat half way renovated by a developer. The floor plan worked but it just wasn’t right. Plus light was lacking even on the gracious parlor floor. Some plan adjustments, window alterations and general cleaning up of misplaced casings and moldings made the difference. Together with a more neutral palette (imagine former blue walls) to offer a background for the varied art pieces from the client, the duplex transformed into a new form of its former elegance.
