Neutral Craftsman Living Room with White French Doors
The bookshelves get modified slightly to give them cleaner look more in the Craftsman style, and French doors with frosted glass are added between the living room and the adjacent space that could serve as either an office or spare bedroom.
Erin and Ben agreed with the homeowners that the home would be better served by restoring the original porch. The French doors get updated for proper function and are painted ox-blood on the exterior side to match the front door, and white on the inside in keeping with the interior trim.
Neutral Craftsman Kitchen with Custom Wood Banquette
The new kitchen is bright and airy with updated lighting, new cabinetry, subway tile backsplash and lots of natural wood. Ben fashioned a custom banquette — a special request by Mackenzie as a feature that would remind her of the home she grew up in. The banquette was constructed from reclaimed wood flooring and the seating was butcher block to tie in with the wood countertops.
Craftsman-Style Grand Foyer Hall With Stone Columns
This long hallway entrance connects the foyer to the great room. Craftsman-style sconces and drum shade pendant lights guide the way. Stone columns meet wooden ceiling beams down the length of the hall causing the eye to travel with them.
Craftsman-Style Bedroom That Opens to the Outdoors
A stone fireplace and feature walls are paired with a sleek bed in this modern-meets-rustic retreat. On one side of the room, a wall of glass doors opens to reveal an inviting terrace, creating an indoor-outdoor feel.
This remodeled Craftsman home’s interior features crisp lines and a neutral color palette. Warm wood floors and cabinets stay true to the home's character, while more contemporary furnishings complete the dining room.
Open wide doorways connect the rooms of the lower level, giving an easy, friendly flow to the house. Moldings and the front door are given special notice with a dark brown finish that's a handsome, crisp contrast to the tan walls.
The look of the porch is transformed with fresh white paint, khaki trim, painted concrete floors and a ceiling fan in a more classic design. But the star of the new porch is the set of twin chair swings — Ben's custom take on the traditional Southern porch swing. Each is a variation on the familiar Adirondack chair design, and they were handmade by Ben using reclaimed wood from demo of one of the home's interior walls.
Neutral Craftsman Kitchen with Brown Hardwood Floor
The linoleum floor was removed and replaced with new hardwood flooring using stained yellow pine meticulously color-matched to approximate the tone of the original heart pine found throughout the rest of the home.
Neutral Craftsman Master Bedroom with Black Iron Framed Bed
The queen sized bed with classic black iron frame was selected by Erin and Mallorie to match the simplicity and period of a Craftsman home. Antique record boxes from the 1930s used to create custom shadowbox-style shelves.
Elegant Craftsman Kitchen With Beautiful Wood Cabinetry
The combination of wood and stone in this kitchen is captivating. Floor-to-ceiling cabinetry allows for plenty of organized and accessible storage. A long kitchen island creates an eat-in area with chic brown leather barstools. Dark brown and black stone countertops complement the lighter stone floors.
