When the owner of a run-down, century-old row house near D.C.'s Union Market asked Kerra Michele Huerta to help renovate their space, the designer leapt at the chance to get creative. After the construction crew dug out the basement to create a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment with a full kitchen for guests, Huerta stepped into the entryway and used remnants of unsalvageable pine floors to design a "welcome mat" inlay in the new foyer. The coat rack was repurposed too; though it seems right at home next to the bright red art, it's actually comprised of old pipes.
Make a grand statement with your entryway. Here, beautiful arched doors lead into a spacious foyer with an eclectic mix of styles. A contemporary table is paired with a traditional black mirror and simple accessories for an eye-pleasing vignette, while a fur area rug adds warmth to the rustic hardwood floors.
Along this modern stairway, glass and metal rails connect with the unique glass and metal pendant fixtures that light the space. Lilac paint gives added definition to the curved architecture. Throughout the house, eclectic elements blend the client’s love of pattern and color with the ruggedness of the Park City, Utah, landscape.
Here's a fun and bright kids' playroom right off of the kitchen. This keeps the kids entertained and out of the way, but still in sight while the parents are making meals and entertaining. The festive colors create a great environment for learning and playing alike.
Stunning Transitional Foyer With Patterned Hardwood Floors
Though recently renovated, this foyer still has all the hallmarks of a historic home: tall ceilings with crown molding, patterned hardwood floors, a grand staircase, etc. By outfitting the space with artwork and accents in teal and coral hues, the designers were able to update the interior without compromising its character.
An eclectic grouping of furnishings, including an art deco reading lamp, makes up this sitting area. Neutral walls provide a sense of calm, and the ample sunlight helps connect the room to the outdoors.
A wide gold chevron stripe visually leads residents through this eclectic hallway. It's a portrait gallery of sorts where the distinguished guests on display are some of Jackson Hole's (where the house is located) most notable occupants.
