A 19th Century Home Restoration Design Story

A 19th Century Home Restoration Design Story

14 October, 2013  |  Exterior, House Interior

This spectacular example of 19th century home restoration, presented by The DMD Group, just goes to show that older structures don’t have to look dated. Multiple elements of this 19th century home were kept intact and perfectly preserved to maintain a decidedly sophisticated mood. An outdoor stone health placed on the other side of the indoor fireplace acts as a mirror. One can almost sense the warm heat emanating from inside. Black brass doorknobs and hardware almost jumps off of the light colored wood doors that they are affixed to. There are no railings on the staircase leading up to the second floor, but there is metal wiring that’s reminiscent of harp strings. The stairs themselves are bolted firmly into the wall, appearing to float in midair. Structured and simple, this renovation project is a complete success.
