For the past ten months or so I’ve been working with a wonderful young family on the renovation of a historic row home in Georgetown. The home has a unique layout that many buyers would have been put off by–a kitchen on the lower level–but thankfully my clients saw its potential and we’ve renovated to make the space more functional for modern living, while still honoring the integrity of the home.
We’re in the final stages of construction, and as pieces are coming in I’m getting more and more excited for installation. The before & after photos will be a complete 180! Check out these gorgeous open shelves we had made–blackened steel frames with walnut shelves. That wood grain, right?!
Since it’s a small space, I suggested forgoing upper cabinets in favor of open shelves to keep things light and airy. The lower cabinets are black shaker style cabinets with un-lacquered brass bin pulls which will patina over time. Faux-wood porcelain tile laid in a herringbone pattern on the floor will give us the look of wood without the concern of moisture that the basement level presented.
I’m headed up to DC tomorrow for a few presentations and meetings and can’t wait to check in on this project. It’s always so rewarding watching the pieces come together!
