Renovated Front Exterior

To give this historic Tudor home a new look, the designers removed the wood accents in favor of an all-stucco exterior. Decorative brick around the door and windows, though, accentuates the home's more traditional features and keeps it from being too modern. 

Family Room With Exposed Beams

Stepping inside reveals a comfortable family room, where leather sofas pair with wood accents and an Oriental rug for a space that's warm and rich with contrast. Exposed beams above emphasize the room's height, while broad windows fill the space with beautiful natural light. 

Open Dining Room

The bright, sunshine yellow of the family room is carried through to the adjacent dining room. Here, the designers removed a large wall to create a clear line of sight into the kitchen. As a nod to the home's Tudor style, they kept the exposed beams on the ceiling and brought in dark wood furniture to complete the look.

Updated White and Yellow Kitchen

Yellow walls keep the kitchen bright and cheerful, while white cabinets and black soapstone countertops offer a unique contrast. The upper cabinets are glass paneled, creating a more modern display case, while the lower cabinets are updated and have plenty of room for storage. 

Durable Soapstone Countertops

Dark soapstone countertops extend throughout the kitchen, providing a durable surface for preparing meals and entertaining. Overhead, pendant fixtures and recessed lighting ensure that the space is well-lit. 

Custom-Designed Oven

This state-of-the-art oven was created with a vintage look, despite having all the modern conveniences of a new appliance. Just above, there's a place to set spices and oil for easy access while cooking. 

Concealed Appliances

To update this cozy kitchen, the designers added new cabinets that were more functional and modern, but still remained true to the home's style. They then concealed those appliances with wood panels for a clean, seamless design. 

Kitchen Features Farmhouse Sink

Underneath the newly-installed windows, a deep Farmhouse sink makes food preparation a breeze. Sleek silver fixtures add a touch of elegance to the setting. 

Dining Room With French Doors

In the dining room, six cushioned chairs and a wooden table create an intimate space for gathering with friends and family. Where the exposed beams and dark wood offer a beautiful contrast with the yellow walls, the French doors provide easy access to the patio. 

Sweeping Arches

Sweeping arches in the hallway keep the first floor open and create a gentle flow into the rest of the house. White moulding along the baseboards adds to the home's traditional charm. 

Master Bath With Marble Counters

Silver fixtures and marble countertops positively shine in this serene master bathroom, giving the space a luxurious touch. Meanwhile, the dark wood vanity offers a rich contrast to the white walls, as well as provides storage for soap, towels and other essentials. 

Chic Black and White Tile

Black and white penny-round tile leads to a private corner, where a tall window keeps the bathroom feeling bright and airy. To the left, a teal shower offers the perfect pop of unexpected color. 

Shower Features Teal Subway Tile

Teal subway tile adds a pleasant pop of color to this otherwise black-and-white design, thus uplifting the bathroom and making it feel more modern. A marble bench helps connect the stall to the vanity outside for a look that feels thoughtfully cohesive. 

Updated Rear Exterior and Backyard

The back of the home proves just as picturesque as the front, with dark brown window panes and trim defining the Tudor's features. Iron rails and stone steps lead down to the backyard, where little ones can play safely into the evening.
