Saint Paul, Minnesota
2018 Regional CotY Award Winner, Residential Addition $100,000 to $250,000
This St. Paul couple had been collecting and restoring vintage kitchen appliances and fixtures for their circa 1912 home for years. The challenge was to create an authentic 1930s environment for them without forsaking modern conveniences. They also wanted a mudroom, main level bathroom, and basement laundry without compromising their charming backyard. The enlarged kitchen conceals modern amenities while showcasing classic appliances. A custom table with drawers was centered in the kitchen in lieu of an island for a period look. A classic checkerboard floor, apron sink, pushbutton light switches, and a leaded glass mudroom window reinforce the vintage feel.
