Restoration of an American Classic: Old American house has been restored with slightly modern touches and elegant finishes

11 May, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

This very elegant and beautifully styled house is surrounded by lush green vegetation, colourful flowers and tall trees and is a restoration completed on the shores of Lake Minnetonka, in the Gulf of Robinson, Minneapolis, USA. Transformed by designers and artists at American company Murphy and Company Design, this very classic American home has bright white cornicing and framing as well as a large circular window in the very centre of the house. The textured stone exterior and slatted roof help to keep the classical feel alive, while the interior tells a similar picture. Inside, the openness of the space is evident by the high ceilings made from beautiful rich wood and the classical feel is carried forward through the furnishings. Photos by Phillip Mueller.
