The Story

A young couple expecting their first child found a gem of a house in Salem that was in desperate need of an update. Our design goal was straightforward ~ design a home that paid homage to the age of the house, while reflecting the "hip-ness" of the couple. To accomplish this, JASON BALL interiors brought in traditional style cabinetry and flooring, and then layered on textures, colors and creative accents. The real punch comes in the kitchen backsplash. A traditional cream subway tile is combined with bubble tiles randomly scattered about. Like little tile clouds, they just seem to float through the room, providers viewers an expected accent at every turn. Nothing says that vintage kitchen design can't also be a little fun at the same time. The rich textured theme is carried into the dining room with a Moroccan inspired wall coverings which cleverly picks up on the rich tones used in the kitchen. Arched mahogany doors (original to the home) lead to the entry hall, remodeled stair case and gold-leafed covered walls of the powder room.
