This award-winning Lake Harriet Home had incredible architectural bones, but a complete renovation was needed after years of neglect to create a home for this young family. An addition provides for a light filled eat-in kitchen, family room and mudroom that create flow through the home and open the spaces to the expansive backyard. Traditional detailing and dark wood floors give the rooms a warm feeling, while large cased openings and enameled woodwork provide a brightness lacking in many older homes. Unique materials give the home a personal touch suited to the homeowners, including Moroccan terracotta tile, fanciful encaustic tile, icebox cabinet latches and solid walnut and zinc countertops. A collection of new and antique furniture, coupled with fabric ready for the abuse of family living, finishes off this incredible home.
