This colonial home was refreshed with a design that included brightening and using contemporary inspired elements throughout the home. A color scheme of grays and blues gives a relaxing and cohesive appearance to the home and helps achieve the clean, modern aesthetic. In the bright foyer a beautiful updated light fixture draws your attention to the soaring ceilings. Modern styled sconces light the stairway and complement the chandelier with the same sleek feel. Light gray walls reflect the natural light and highlight the beautiful hardwood floors that are throughout the home. In the living room, the existing floor to ceiling fireplace was redesigned and refreshed with deep gray stacked stone. The rich color and texture make this fireplace the centerpiece of this spacious room. Contemporary design choices, such as the glass paneled barn door that separates a mudroom space from the main living areas and serves as a functional and beautiful architectural feature, lend an updated sophistication to a classic design.
