An updated Craftsman bungalow

I had to share one other impeccably executed project by cityhomeCOLLECTIVE. We sought to honor the bones of this Craftsman bungalow, but wanted to avoid sinking into a literal interpretation of the era. To this end, we kept the original trim, flooring, and window casings, and struck balance and interest by integrating contemporary and mid-century light fixtures, furniture, and art with pieces that lent texture, color, and patterns to the space. Art played a big role in the transformation, and we used clean, modern pieces to slice through the heavy, dark seriousness of the Craftsman aesthetic. This one hits home because my home is also a Craftsman and I too wanted to honour the architectural details and keep it current.
