Honoring the Old & New Design Tricks I Love

With LOVE on the brain while I’m knee-deep in real estate and renovations, I was reminded of  some design tricks I LOVE and like to incorporate into my own schemes. The Newport area is home to so many incredibly historic properties, where, if you’re lucky, you can salvage details that might otherwise have been glazed over in their re-design. I’m particularly keen on marrying both the old and new when it comes to elements such as stairways. Above, you’ll see a transformation made when my design and renovation company, LKRDC, beautified a property on Ormerod Street. (You can view the complete before & afters, here). Just below, you’ll see we’re in good company, with designer Mark Cunningham.
