Transforming A House Into A “Home”

by Marilyn Rose on Nov 5, 2018 Business and Finance 14 Views

Our client and her young daughter love to spend time by the water picking up seashells, and watching the ships sail by. So when the opportunity arose to purchase a waterfront home near family, she jumped at the chance!
However, after the initial excitement of her new purchase subsided, our client faced the sad reality that her newly acquired house did not feel like her “home”, neither inside nor out. Thankfully M.H. Rose Interiors, known for our Hamptons Interior Design, and Long Island Interior Design was hired to provide the life preserver! With the assistance of Architect Peter Nesfield, the transformation began, converting a cold contemporary home into a Hamptons Shingle-Style, with gambrel roof lines, simple columns, and classic architectural details

Transitioning from exterior to interior, the magical transformation continued. The white tubular staircase morphed into a graceful sweeping staircase. The dark walnut handrail and decorative white posts, will now definitely make for a lovely photo op on prom night!

Moving into the kitchen, there are more dramatic changes to be seen. The dated white contemporary cabinets were replaced with rich white traditional cabinets, adorned with details that are a feast for the eyes! Elegantly carved corbels, flank the range hood and window, while the island was embellished with gorgeous Corinthian pilasters. The dark walnut floors are in stark contrast with the white cabinetry and marble countertops, for a real pop!

To unify the open plan kitchen and dining room design, the dark walnut floors flow seamlessly, while the cane back island stools, dining chairs, and intricately carved dining room table maintain the traditional style throughout.

The new den design combines the client’s desire for both elegance and comfort. The fireplace has been transformed from drab to fab, with a French mantle, and exquisite
custom cabinetry. Above the fireplace, dore’ bronze antique sconces and alabaster urns resting on the mantle add to the elegance, while the plush green textured sofa, chairs and buttery leather ottoman add to the comfort. What a wonderful room for family and friends to gather and create new memories!
