Modern Home

We transformed a dark, traditional townhouse into a light and serene space with Scandinavian modern style. To achieve this, the home was completely gutted we stripped everything down to the studs and then rebuilt it.

As the house did not get much sunlight, we used light, watery paint tones, soft lighting fixtures and luminous flooring colors to make the home feel warm and inviting.

The 18th century antique tall case clocks – one Norwegian, the other Swedish – and formal 19th century Danish sconces added a stately touch. These were paired with original mid-century modern wishbone chairs by Hans Wegner. The combination of 18th, 19th and 20th century masterworks create a dialog of design that’s timeless and classic. But also very modern.

The bedroom evokes the feeling of being on the water; the space almost floats with light blue flooring, soft white walls and cool blue accents. The selected art is an original photograph by local artist Neil Landino.
