100 Year Old Home E-Design

Who:  Newlywed lawyers

What: Heritage Home

Years lived in: 1 year

Our client Samantha and her husband are both young professionals in Edmonton. They recently purchased their first (100 year old) home near Whyte Avenue that they wanted to bring back to life by doing a kitchen, living room, dining room and front entry renovation.

Samantha has a classic style and wanted to preserve and enhance the traditional elements of her home. Things that were a must for Samantha were: a traditional fireplace mantel, marble countertops, amazing wallpaper and we had to work with her existing navy tufted sofa.

We broke the e-design down into three spaces:

1 - Kitchen/Breakfast Nook 2 - Living & Dining Room 3 - Front Entry

We can't wait to see the final results!

Like most old homes there was a real lack of storage. We wanted to give them a beautiful entry with storage and a console for the obligatory mail drop. How beautiful would an antique armoire look in this space?

We recommended a wall of built in cabinetry in the dining room. Our client needed more storage for china and serving ware but it also double as another serving space when entertaining. Depending on your budget you could achieve this look with ready made cabinetry from a big box store.

We were working with our clients existing sofa which was a pretty substantial size and we were working around two entryways into the space so the layout was tricky. Ultimately we wanted to create a beautiful fireplace as the focal point of the room. We are suggesting a show stopper marble mantle.
