This inviting Arts and Crafts style bungalow in Pleasant Ridge is a case study in blending functional family living with a love of art, curated curiosities and classic design pieces.

The heart of the house is the family’s cozy living room, dining room and sunroom. The dining room’s clean white walls and warm wood casing allow the residences’ enviable art and antiques collection to shine. This small room packs a punch in both iconic design pieces and sentimental objects collected over many years.

The living room’s black brick fireplace creates an inviting focal point. Mid-century design classics sit comfortably next to family heirloom pieces and both are enlivened by bright pops from the residences’ collection of books. From the living room, the moody sunroom’s dark walls, ample windows and lush plants are on full display, creating a stunning juxtaposition to the living room’s lightness.

Even more utilitarian spaces are thoughtfully designed and curated. The kitchen boasts black cabinetry with Shaker doors and brass hardware. Clean white subway tile stretches to ceiling height and a custom geometric tile design on the floor adds visual interest and pattern. An upstairs bathroom has a sophisticated palette of dark green, terracotta and white oak, while the basement shower room and sauna boasts a playful and bright small scale tile with hand painted signage.
