Our design for this Historic Piedmont Tudor home demonstrates the “New Tradish;” where grand old houses are not so stuffy anymore. We partnered with the new owners of a historically significant architectural classic in Piedmont (one of the “Three sisters,” a trio of Jacobian Tudors designed by architect Houghton Sawyer and built in 1923) to create a home that is both elegant and warm, and reflective of the vibrant lifestyle and contemporary tastes of a young, growing family.

Their loves: world travel, art, music, books, entertaining, and family, are woven throughout the designs, from the ample seating in every room, to the built-ins for displaying their library and collections, while maintaining a sense of spaciousness, flow, and light.

We’ve written about this project before, in the Piedmont Post, and our work was featured in the San Francisco Chronicle earlier this year as well.

In today’s post, we are sharing with you the before-and-after view of the design process.

Our before images show the blank or mostly-blank slates. (If you would like to see a slideshow of how the house was staged for sale, click here.)
