Constructed in 1853, this beautiful Federal-style home has been the residence of a number of high profile individuals, including August Coppla, brother of director Francis Ford Coppola. Can't you just imagine the family walking these halls or gathering in the kitchen?
The main house spans two floors, which are connected by a staircase and a lift. The entrance is a show-stopper, too, as it opens to an atrium with vaulted ceilings made of Roman concrete. The floor is comprised of an impressive mosaic made with genuine cards from Roman times.
The entire sunroom was painted the same neutral color to effectively make the traditional art collection stand out. The Victorian floor tile is a focal point, so smaller sisal rugs were specified for the seating areas.
A traditional staircase pairs with an upholstered bench and a distressed side table to create an elegant yet inviting atmosphere upon entering this home. A warm color scheme of creamy neutrals and rich browns creates a compelling sense of authenticity.
An attached kitchen is a must for any event space, right? Luckily, this room off the attic is equipped with a stove, oven, large sink and moveable island (or bar cart, depending on how you look at it).
Color makes such a difference: The print of this foyer's floral wallpaper is traditional enough, but in black and white it looks so fresh and exciting. The black front door continues the color scheme to the exterior.
An enchanting front entrance with a Dutch door introduces guests to the traditional home. Built in 1902, the homeowners have taken great care to preserve and enhance the architecture and design of Laurentia, as well as to bring its structural integrity to the highest level.
Traditional Bar Area With Neutral Stone Countertops
This spacious bar area features dark brown wooden cabinets and shelving, allowing ample storage space for bar essentials. Wide plank hardwood floors were designed to match the cabinetry, while neutral stone countertops provide a light contrast. A curved staircase with a wrought iron railing is positioned overhead.
Storage Dilemma: You don’t have a designated spot for your crafting and gift wrapping supplies and waste time searching your home for all the essentials. Solution: Gather, sort and group similar items and use drawers, bins, rods or a cart to keep everything organized. If space is tight, set up a mini station in a corner of your home office or inside a closet.
Lovely details are found throughout the 1891 home, like the wainscoting and bannisters of these stairs and the pretty wood floors. Light filters in through a leaded glass window, crafted by the Colorsmith Studio.
The interior of this historic home is just as exquisite as the exterior, with a gilded chandelier and spiral staircase that leads to the second level. Twin console tables offer a place for keys, mail and invitations to events.
