Remodelers find passion in a historic preservation project

Just off the staircase, an upstairs landing provides plenty of space to display pieces picked up in Chicago through Sotheby’s/Leslie Hindman.

The cement tiles that make up the backsplash over the stove in this kitchen are by local artist Amy Falstrom.

Pine cabinets add to the charm of the kitchen in this historic home, cleverly concealing modern conveniences like a Sub-Zero refrigerator, an icemaker and a large pantry.

The walls in this kitchen are painted a rich Italian saffron color, perfectly complementing the crisp white doorways and light countertop.

While this home exhibits some French touches, the brackets on the exterior pull the home to more of an Italianate style.

A spacious bath awaits guest on the second floor of this home. The owners decided to forgo the traditional towel rack in favor of a more interesting ladder.

In this master suite, a dressing room comes complete with a morning kitchen, shown on the wall nearest the sink and shower area.

Through the columns on this wraparound porch, take a peek at one of this home’s leaded-glass windows.

The mosaic tile on this wraparound porch was a surprise for owners and remodelers Joe and Ken to uncover.

The staircase and banisters are new to this historic home and were designed by architect Dave Gibson.

Located in the curve of an upstairs turret, the intricate inlaid design in the flooring is actually new to this historic home.

Animal prints make frequent appearances throughout this historic home, easily combining playful modern touches with the elegance and sophistication of the old.
