Bringing a historic 1921 American Foursquare back to its former glory.
This historic Fort Myers home had been neglected for the past 5 years, but it had great bones. Underneath the filth and cobwebs, it had a lot of potential, but it definitely needed a heavy dose of TLC.
With gorgeous trim, cased openings and original woodwork, this foursquare boasts beautiful craftsman features throughout. Each room is designed according to its original purpose. Soft, neutral tones are complimented with colorful artwork and patterned rugs to create a classic feel.
Before, this home felt very dark and closed-in. To brighten it up, we created another cased opening in the dining room, gave each room a fresh coat of paint, deep cleaned the windows and added new light fixtures. One of our favorite focal points is the fireplace in the living room. Kristen chose to use tumbled Chicago bricks to add texture and color, giving this room a timeless charm.
