Historic Eastern Shore Renovation
We undertook a full renovation of the kitchen and primary bath in this historic waterfront home in Maryland. Our goal was to lighten the spaces, which formed part of a cramped wing added by a previous owner, while creating a sense of history in keeping with the original 1750 section of the house.
We began by vaulting the kitchen ceiling, then brought in materials that will patina over time, from unlacquered brass to fumed-oak butcher block.
In the bath, designed to feel like an 18th-century conversion, we installed antique heart-pine floors and selected period-appropriate fixtures.
