As you enter the main floor of our Scarsdale Colonial project, you are welcomed through the red front door into a beautiful entryway that is lined with grasscloth wallpaper. We styled the space to immediately invoke a feeling of both history and welcome with a mixture of clean-lined, new pieces and antique elements. We kept the original wall treatments and entryway light fixture. The arched doorways throughout the home are a key architectural element, and you can’t miss the arch as soon as you open the front door.
The previous owners passed down a black-and-white sketch of the house, and we made sure it found a place right inside the front door.
The staircase is tucked further into the house, and all it took was a few simple changes like a hall table, a family photo gallery, and a stair runner to make this feel like a welcoming, family home.
From the staircase, you can enter either the formal dining and living room or the more casual family space. The formal dining and living space is light, airy, and inviting with the beautiful bay window looking out over their lush landscaped yard. We divided this space into two distinct areas: the formal seating area and the formal dining. We anchored the two spaces between the fireplace and arched display cabinet and separated them with two different rugs and furniture plans. The space is overwhelmingly neutral, but the pop of color from the blue velvet chairs makes the perfect statement.
The casual family room is one of our favorite rooms in the house and is truly the heart of the home. It is warm and inviting with a large, comfortable, performance fabric sectional and plenty of storage to hide away toys. The semi-flush mount on the ceiling adds a touch of glamour.
The breakfast nook leading onto the patio is the perfect space for daily family meals.
We can’t wait to show you more with the exterior and bedroom spaces!
