Project Name: 1909 Interior / St. Paul Remodel

Project Statement

Our clients love their 1909 American traditional home on Summit Avenue in St. Paul. Prior to the remodel the interior, built in the ’90’s, didn’t fit into the beautiful design of the original house. We opened up the floorplan by connecting the kitchen to the dining room and sunroom through larger arches and created a mudroom, ski closet and powder room that flows smoothly throughout the main floor. New windows and doors allow natural light to penetrate deep into the interior of the home, giving it a fresh, airy aesthetic. Natural materials and high-end details reclaim the home’s history and tie it in with the classic aura of the rest of the interior.

A door leading out to the deck and a new window flanking the range were added to the East wall. New recessed cabinets and stained cabinetry were designed to mimic the existing paneling in the dining room. Venetian plaster and painted corbels adorn the furniture-like hood above the stove, and the beautiful and eye-catching backsplash is New Ravenna stained glass tile. The avid skiers in the family loved that the tile created a pattern similar to slalom tracks in fresh snow. The unique pattern and installation has never been done before, creating a one-of-a-kind kitchen.
