Through rose-colored glasses

Home improvement ideas transformed a worn out 100-year-old house into a beach-inspired abode

The original, stained glass window in the breakfast nook served as inspiration for this space. The homeowner purchased her chandelier to coordinate with the window colors.

Existing laminate cabinetry in this kitchen was enhanced with turquoise knobs that match the wall color.

French doors were installed in this master bedroom’s sitting area to provide access to the newly added rooftop terrace.

The original leaded, glass windows in the living room of this 100-year-old home were salvaged. The homeowner added molding to frame the windows.

The family room ceiling of this home was raised two feet which, in turn, created a rooftop terrace off the master bedroom.

A 100-year-old Cincinnati-area home got a new lease on life when the homeowner peeled away the past renovations and put some remodeling ideas of her own in place.

A third floor bedroom, study and living room all feature charming coved ceilings and leaded glass windows.

Beautiful oak hardwood flooring adds to the cheery atmosphere in this dining room. Overhead, a chandelier adds a small twist of elegance.

A warm and inviting entry—a subtle nod to the design of the rest of the house—draws guests into the folds of this 100-year-old home.

A picture window serves as the backdrop for this family room’s window seat, increasing the light in the space.

The bright yellow color on the walls in this dining room was meant to resemble the sun. On the wall, a painting by Donna Talerico, was purchased at Pendleton Studios.

The master bedroom—a place where the homeowner spends a fair deal of time—is dressed in calming neutrals, all the better to take advantage of the plethora of natural light streaming into the room.
