Purchased as a multigenerational family retreat, the owners of this home wanted to upgrade and amend some of its existing builder details without entering into a full-fledged remodel. They also needed to furnish the home in a way that would withstand a high-traffic environment and provide the ability to comfortably sleep up to fourteen guests.
The biggest interventions undertaken by OreStudios include the addition of built-in cabinets and beds throughout the house that match the builder’s existing detailing. These areas were carefully designed to appear original to the builder’s plan, allowing us to focus on larger aesthetic changes elsewhere. All of the decorative lighting, hardware, and window coverings were also replaced.
The house was furnished using mostly off-the-shelf resources, hewing to a tight palette of neutrals. With ample space designed to gather, as well as areas that allow for quiet retreat, furnishings are meant to move to adjacent rooms as needed.
