A Timeless Design Plan for a Hundred Year Old Ann Arbor Colonial

I've got a new project update for you today! This one comes to you from the lovely city of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The project? A hundred year old colonial for a family of four (plus pup!).


This house is our clients forever (or at least long time!) home, so they want to make it really special. The footprint of the main floor isn't huge, but there's loads of charm, and with some creative space planning, it'll be exactly what they need.



We'll be tackling the entirety of the main floor and adding on a small mudroom off the kitchen in partnership with local builder JDS Renovations. The kitchen will be a total gut, and everything else will be largely cosmetic----paint, flooring, wallpaper, some cool built-ins, and of course, furniture!


Let's dive in...



The Existing Space


Below I've compiled photos of the existing space. The breakdown of the main floor includes what will be a library off of the living room, the living room, a few details in the entry, a powder bath refresh, the dining room, kitchen, and a new mudroom addition.


You can see below that the space already has loads of charm, AND that my clients already have great style, which is always exciting to work with!!
