When renovating a whole home, you often start with the key “pain” area and work back from there. In this case, ARTium started with the ensuite and created a beautiful white-on-white palette that inspired the rest of the design.
A 20-year-old colonial-style home has the ability to lean in a more contemporary direction — if the design respects the bones of the home. This was the consideration for the overall design of the home, from the kitchen to the dining room and into the family room.
The largest challenge was the sunken living room off the kitchen, which included columns. ARTium raised the sunken area, removed the posts and reoriented the fireplace to create a space with more functional seating and more flexibility. The change was much more dramatic than expected, and the atmosphere and flow changed significantly.
Consistency from space to space is what ties this whole home renovation together, and the result is classic and clean with a beautifully traditional twist.
