A combination of old and new is featured throughout the house, like in the entryway, where new built-in cabinetry and wood shelving has been added, while the door designs and trim work reference the original elements of the home.

The existing house was re-worked while maintaining structural walls, and roof-lines. A new master suite was created within the existing rooms at the front of the house, and it features a soft color palette with pinks and blues.

A central double height space containing the stair separates the new addition from the original home, and allows light to flow throughout the interior.

Steps lead from the main hallway down into the living room. Custom cabinetry lines the wall underneath the television, while abstract wall art and cushions add a touch of color.

Behind the living room is the kitchen. Matte powder blue cabinets line the wall and transform into a small built-in home office with a bench and desk, while a large white kitchen island provides additional seating.

The dining room, as well as the living room, both open up to the yard. A covered wood deck provides additional living space for the family.

Back inside, and the children’s bedrooms, a family bathroom, and play room were positioned on the upper floor to create distinct living zones suitable for current primary school aged children, but with a view to providing long-term suitability for young adult children living at home.

In the family bathroom, an arabesque tile pattern in white covers the walls, while the wall-to-wall mirror reflects the shower and the natural light from the skylight.
