Inside an architect's timelessly chic and charming Colonial Revival Connecticut home!

This beautiful 1898 Connecticut home belongs to architect Thomas Kligerman that he shares with his family of six. When he bought the house, it had received two additions, once in the 1920s and again in the 1980s. Unfortunately, the additions did not have a good flow. To tackle the problem, he decided to retain the footprint of the house and remove the unattractive additions. With a vision and the help from designer Terri Ricci, this Colonial Revival house is transformed into a charming abode with a stripped down, sculptural feel. Let's take a look!

This home exudes warmth, coziness and character yet feels fresh and current thanks to a combination of earthy palette, high vaulted ceilings, reclaimed wood beams, stone fireplace, wood paneling, oak flooring and streamlined furnishings. Layered, thoughtfully designed and timelessly chic, there are so many wonderful details to take away from this gorgeous residence, don't you think? Your thoughts?
