The Skipper Project shaker heights historic home interior design

This historic Shaker Heights home is located in a charming, well-established neighborhood full of beautiful, classic-style homes, expansive lawns, and mature trees. With easy proximity to downtown Cleveland, our newly retired clients plan to keep their long-time residence as their forever home.

Part of embracing their new chapter of life includes modernizing their home's interiors to accommodate their lifestyle. As avid entertainers of both large and small events, they recruited us to redesign the layout, select materials, manage the construction, and deliver a fully renovated kitchen and dining room.

We adjusted the floorplan for smoother flow, added a large island for easy entertaining, selected a stunning porcelain backsplash for the cooktop, and designed custom cabinetry. To maintain this classic-style home's architectural integrity, we blended old with new through moulding and a custom-glazed cabinet for their crystal collection.

In the dining room, a custom upholstered banquette and chairs offer stylish and comfortable seating. The updated, colorful touches in the room were inspired by this couple's extensive art collection. Striking a balance between sophisticated and playful, this room is now ideal for lively yet intimate parties and events.
