What was once a catch-all for old furniture is now a jewel-toned beauty of a sitting room. The rug was the jumping off point for the rich palette and is surprisingly durable, as the room is the main path to access an enclosed porch.

The scope of this project involved adding 1,217 square feet to an 87-year-old home to meet the needs of a growing family. The exterior was built to look original to the home and to complement the neighboring houses in the historic neighborhood. The addition has a seamless look by matching the home's existing brick but part of it was designed to look like an enclosed sleeping porch, a common characteristic of older homes in the neighborhood.
A screened-in porch was enclosed to create this wonderfully cozy reading nook and play room. To keep the project budget friendly, designers used board and batten walls, rough-sawn faux beams and simple, built-in shelving.
