Many know that when historicity and modern taste come face to face, the result is usually a classic, grandeur interior that leaves nothing to the imagination. This house, designed by , has transformed this historic pre-civil war building into the most timelessly elegant and rich space that works with the original architecture in order to deliver an utterly majestic dwelling. The exterior of the mansion is jaw-opening, with white balconies that decorate all three floors. Outdoor fans and furniture adds comfort, while the numerous matte white pillars add a sense of historical importance.
The interior is majestic in more than one form, yet one cannot help but first notice the luxuriously high, white ceilings that are delicately ornate. Space is certainly not an issue in this house, though these rooms attempt to maximize the feelings of grandeur with their neutral walls and white framed windows. The furniture is nothing short of classic, while there is a generous amount of lighting that streams through the windows, offering glorious views.
With such high walls and king-sized beds, the bedrooms have been styled in a tastefully simple manner with heavy uses of dark, rich wood. Bedposts mark the beds, while some even have canopy-top decorations that proudly boast of the home’s generous amount of space.
The living room is, as one might imagine, loyal to the house’s facade—classic and colonial, a mahogany wood floor stretches across the vast space that invites anyone to relax on one of the cushioned, leather seats that enshrine the American pre-civil war portraits.
The kitchen is, in one word, daring. From the elevated ceilings hangs glass lamps at various levels, while astoundingly high, white cabinets decorate one of the walls. A metallic stove, oven, and overhead fan are complimented by the rustic brick wall behind them, while a black marble counter-table invites one to enjoy spending their mornings eating a wholehearted breakfast. With a small staircase that ascends into a room above and a nautical portrait above the entry way, this kitchen is nothing short of a family space.
