Inside an incredibly fresh, chic and charming historic home in Northern California!

A couple decided to trade their Manhattan apartment for this 1915 Northern California redwood home to raise their two young daughters. To bring their vision to life, they have enlisted Liesl Geiger-Kincade of Manhattan's Studio Geiger Architecture and Los Angeles design firm Commune to transform their historic Berkeley home. The results is unbelievably stunning. Let's check it out!

How incredibly gorgeous! The beautiful dark redwood ceilings, walls and woodwork exude so much warmth and coziness in this abode, don't you think? Unfortunately, the wood also absorbs too much light leaving the rooms feeling dark and gloomy. To brighten up the rooms while retaining the original woodwork, the designers cleverly incorporate discreet solar tubes along with additions of wall sconces, table lamps and ceiling lights to the space. 

With a great mix of vibrant pieces, contemporary furnishings, bohemian accents and geometric elements, this historic abode feels laid-back yet polished and sophisticated. Such a fresh, chic and charming residence, what's not to love? Your thoughts?

  2. I love that they didn't go all "serious" with this home that already has so much character! I LOVE the facade and everything they added!

  3. One of the best homes and original I've seen in ages. Just love it! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š
