Residential Renovation Part 5: The Foyer and Powder Room – Before & After

This nearly 100 year old suburban Boston home underwent a head-to-toe renovation designed by Hundred Acre.  We kept the classic bones of the home intact, and updated the layout and finishes to suit a young family’s needs.

Foyer West: Before foyer 1 before Foyer West: After foyer 1 after We gave the Foyer an updated polished look by changing the finishes and opening up the entry to the newly renovated Kitchen with classic French doors. We replaced the worn ceramic floor tile with hardwood floors that match the rest of the home to provide a seamless transition between rooms. Grasscloth wallpaper softens the space, while the high gloss black doors add a refined edge. The couples’ antique furnishings are featured in the new space.

Foyer East: Before foyer2before Foyer East: After foyer2after In a renovation done by one of the previous owners, a Powder Room was awkwardly added to the Foyer space, creating a tight and asymmetrical Entry, and covering one of the original front door sidelights. (See Foyer East: Before.) We pushed the Powder Room 3o” into the Living Room to gain back the graceful Entry that was original to the home. This seemingly small change had a huge impact on the success of the renovation.

Powder Room: Before                                        powder room before Powder Room: After powder room after The Powder Room in its new location became sophisticated and chic with Damask wallpaper and Art Deco fixtures from the Duravit 1930 Series. The original gilt frame mirror adds a perfect finishing touch.

Hundred Acre Design Process

About a third of all the furniture that Hundred Acre creates are commissioned pieces in which a customer has asked us for a customized item to suit their specific needs, color palette and/or size restrictions. We enjoy the process of designing with our customers and welcome their ideas and feedback along the way. After we understand what our customer wants, and we have settled on a budget, we create a drawing that shows exactly what the piece will look like, so there are no surprises when the piece arrives at your door.

Here is an example of a design drawing that our customers may receive as part of the Hundred Acre Design Process:
