STORY BY ANGELA REEVES | PHOTOGRAPHY BY ALAN HUDSON

Sometimes a vision can change, and in the case of this classic home, a consult for paint colors turned into a top to bottom full remodel. Both the homeowner and designer loved the “bones” of the home and the level of detail in the construction built in 1992 in the Walkerhurst development, however, after 22 years living there, it was time for some changes.

Tammi Farrell with Interior Alternatives Design, a full-service commercial and residential design build firm, was hired to remodel the home. The design plan was created to use the traditional bones of the home while adding a modern twist, incorporating some of the homeowner’s favorite features of the existing home and antique furniture. The result being a fresh, yet classic home.

The most dramatic update was completed in the dining room, where a dividing wall between the hallway and dining room was removed to create a better flow and a more open floor plan, allowing you to see the grandeur of the 2-story room. Panel molding was also added on all four walls, which totally transformed the space. The antique buffet in the dining room remained as the focal point and a large custom table was crafted by a local woodworker to fit the space, with plenty of new seating to accommodate large family gatherings.

One of the great existing features of the home was the double-sided fireplace adjoining the front sitting room and the master bedroom. The sitting room was painted a dark gray to highlight the white built-in bookcases flanking the fireplace. The outdated couch was replaced with four custom made swivel rockers from Norwalk furniture in a copper metallic fabric and custom drapes designed by Farrell and fabricated by Drapery Nation were added to compliment the overall look.

In the master bedroom, the other side of the brick fireplace was faced with white quartzite natural stone and a new bookcase was designed and added as well as modern floating shelves. The seating and bedroom suite were custom made to give the room a glamorous spa retreat atmosphere for the homeowner to relax in.
