Our unique eye for design marries classic Victorian touches with the modern feel of a Soho loft in this Montclair historic restoration/renovation.
This home in Montclair desperately needed some TLC to become the welcoming Colonial it is today. With a beautiful wrap around porch, the homeowners can relax and enjoy the peacefulness of NJ while being surrounded by details and reminders of the NYC lifestyle.
The clients approached RTH with hesitation as they introduced the project. Knowing it would need a complete interior and exterior renovation, they could not help but fall in love with the original Colonial facade and location. Everyone was easily convinced that this home had the potential to become warm and family-friendly with an open floor plan for entertaining, in just a matter of time. The clients also specified a modern, NYC feel to the overall style, which ended up being a fun collaboration between traditional and contemporary.
This NYC inspired Colonial home is now modern, chic, and openhearted. With modern décor and a simple color palette, this family home has space and maturity. The paneling on the ceiling in the dining area creates an elegant contrast between the kitchen and eating area, without putting up a physical boundary. A reading nook in the corner is surrounded by natural light and is an extension of the living room, really utilizing every square inch of the home. The expansive floor plan allows for entertaining and the beautiful French doors in the eating area lead right out to the backyard for additional space. This classic Colonial turned into a gorgeous home with stylistic elements of NYC, all because the client could foresee the incredible potential.
