After

The Harrisons wanted their century old row house to get back some of its historic appeal, but they also wanted to give it a fresh look. Designer Eric Kole was able to use his imagination and bring the Harrison’s uninspired home some historic proportions. Using some period style and materials from the era, Eric was able to revitalize the urban town house into a Victorian classic. Updates included iron railings, a flagstone walkway, new wooden windows, a new red turret and a wrought-iron fence. Stained-glass house numbers added the final bit of charm.
