To keep the new kitchen feeling original to the old house, Liess paired quartersawn white-oak cabinets (which echo the living-room mantel) with practical soapstone countertops and an extra-deep angled apron-front sink. #marthastewart #decorideas #diydecor
The owner of this traditional Victorian house in Stockwell has turned her artistic hand to every inch of it, from the hand-painted bathroom tiles to the once-ugly kitchen cupboards disguised with pretty broken crockery.
This understated house in St. Paul is a satisfying mix of old and new: the 1922 house was restored, an addition accommodates the kitchen, and the new summerhouse welcomes guests. Rooms inside are warm with glazes and stenciling.
