Shaker Heights, a city on the National Register of Historic Places, is a diverse community with grand architecture from the 20's to mid-century. On my morning walks throughout my community, I always wonder what some of these homes look like inside. Recently, I found out! (At least as it pertains to 2685 Endicott shown above )
A friend of mine who works with the Cathy Lesueur team at Howard Hanna, (a team with 30+ years of selling some of the greatest homes that Northeast Ohio has to offer) took me inside.
Now, the home, currently staged to sell, has so much to offer! AMAZING details throughout but of course, I couldn't help myself but to mock-up what I might consider doing in what was my favorite room of the home: The morning room (or so I called it!).
Take a look below to see the "before" and the imagined "after". I was inspired to be eclectic and mix genres. Take these classic bones and add to them modern details. A favorite thing to do of mine.
Below that you can scroll through additional images of the home.
So this is the "morning room" as it currently exists. Grand windows opening up to the garden out back, an octagonal shape and lots of great millwork and molding details.
So, in my version, I just couldn't help but imagine bold pops of color and modern elements intermixing with the windows and molding treatments of this beautiful and classic space. I think I'd rather enjoy starting my day in this room every day!
Here are a few more pics of the house but check the rest out here!
