1800s Italianate

The owners of this cute village home in the heart of Skaneateles, NY loved the architectural "bones" of the historical home, but they wanted to update the living room and dining room for their modern lifestyles. With some family-friendly fabrics and a few clever furnishings tricks, we turned the living room into a family gathering zone where they could also entertain guests and made the dining room a polished, yet welcoming space for daily family meals.
