Annie and Tom's historic home in Baltimore's Roland Park neighborhood sat vacant for many years before it went on the market. When it did, the couple saw the potential in this broken down old house and snapped it up — and thus began months of renovation and restoration work, including a complete gutting of the kitchen!
"We would probably say [our style is] a mix of traditional, eclectic and comfy. We want things to be fun, but still functional and comfortable," say Annie and Tom in this Apartment Therapy House Tour. "We also love bringing in elements and colors from the outdoors." The shimmering cream backsplash tiles are Moroccan trellis tiles from Daltile, and the reclaimed barn wood table is from an Amish market.
"When we purchased the house it was in complete disrepair — it had been sitting vacant for years and needed everything," the couple says. "We wanted to keep the historical integrity of the house and keep as much original detail as possible. Restoring all the floors, moldings, plaster, etc. was a true labor of love but we are so happy we did it."
And we are, too! What a lovely kitchen.
