The traditional brick exterior of this Hope Valley Georgian belies the riot of color and liveliness within its walls. Our energetic and game-for-anything clients purchased the property with baby number four on the way, and began a several years long renovation. We were fortunate to be brought on at the onset of the project to weigh in on architectural design, manage the selections process, and develop a family friendly design concept true to their exuberant style, but elevated enough to stand up to the home’s classic architecture.

Some of our favorite custom additions to the kitchen include the vent hood salvaged from a NC mill and retrofit to compliment the cobalt blue range, and the double basin soapstone sink anchoring the island which is as functional for a family of six as it is beautiful! In the living room, blue prints from the home’s original architect, George Watts Carr, have place of pride.
