Elegant Beauty Gets the Attention She Deserves

This commanding Mediterranean Revival in Edina was ready for a refresh. The homeowners wanted to bring cohesion and sophistication to their nearly 90-year-old home. As a family with three young boys, special considerations were made to create spaces that were both beautiful and durable.

Pops of color add an upbeat vibrancy to this classic masterpiece.

The adjoining study with its playful wallcovering and pops of color create a kid space that ignites curiosity and creativity.

Family Living

The generous yet relaxed family room sits just off the kitchen and is another extension to the family's well-used living spaces. New custom cabinetry, upgrades to the stone fireplace wall, and a great AV system make movie night fun for all.

Inside Out

Cosmetic refreshes continued throughout the main floor along with exterior improvements as well. Gorgeous, new french doors line the front of the home creating connection to the sweeping living spaces on the veranda.

A Master with a View

The master suite was re-done with minor closet upgrades, new carpet, wallcovering, and strategically-placed recessed lighting. The showstopper is just outside a new set of french doors leading to a roof top terrace of stone. From morning coffee to ev

It's All in the Details

“We adore our home! We moved out during the remodeling process but, Paul, our project manager, did a great job keeping us informed on what was happening and what was next. We really appreciated that.”
