Home Tour: Antique Allure Reinvented in Connecticut

Welcome back, dear readers! In this edition of our home tour series, we’ll travel to a historic neighborhood in Connecticut. Here, an antique gem has undergone a marvelous renovation by the talented team at Crisp Architects.

The renovation oozes traditional elegance, but not in that over-the-top way or stuffy way. The interior design gives a respectful nod to that effortless French country charm and old-world aesthetic that harks back to a more refined era.

The skilled minds at Crisp Architects weaved in all the modern-day comforts without sacrificing the home’s historical spirit. This renovation struck a superb balancing act—traditional character that tells a story paired with all the contemporary perks to make living here an absolute delight. It’s a true feat of design genius if you ask me!

Now, let’s begin our tour, shall we?

As you enter the home, you can see an open floor layout filled with natural light. Here, the living and dining areas share the same space, but the design creates a visual divide that makes both areas flow seamlessly together.

This area works as the focal point, with an artfully arranged sitting area facing it. A collection of mismatched sofas and an antique coffee table give this area and cozy and old-world allure.

Traditional wainscoting colored in a soft neutral greyish-green hue frames the fireplace.

Traditional architectural details like the French doors, single-hung windows, and especially the exposed reclaimed barn wood ceiling beams add to the effortless rustic refinement aesthetic. 

Though the overall color scheme leans towards warm, muted neutrals, the rich textures and patterns found in the upholstered fabrics and area rugs enliven the space. Just look at the room before the transformation!

Adjacent to the living area, French doors open onto a new screened porch addition that seamlessly blends traditional Southern style with sophisticated modern touches.

Surrounded by tall windows filtering in natural light, the space features a plush striped cream and green sofa, woven wicker bay chairs, and a turquoise wood coffee table. The decor is timeless while the contemporary finishes and quaint details make the space feel both elevated and homely.

The ideal laid-back retreat for languid afternoons!

The kitchen renovation is superb! A perfect blend of traditional roots and modern upgrades.

The muted yellow walls lend a warm backdrop for the white cabinetry with bronze hardware. Topping it, rich black marble countertops add a luxe touch.

  1. My favorite room was the kitchen. Loved the colors and the stove with all the copper pots.
