Stunning Historic Princeton Home Made Fresh & Updated
We were thrilled to be invited to stage this home for Princeton’s historical hour tour. Built in the early 1920’s, this five-level fieldstone Normandy manor home had been the Johnson and Johnson legacy home. The house had undergone thoughtful restoration to add modern amenities while preserving architectural integrity.
We designed the furnishings to be classic and traditional in a very fresh, updated way. The arrangement of the furniture required a fresh approach due to the unusual layout of the rooms. The great room has significant entry ways on each of its four wall including a trio of French doors facing the rear of the home. We floated 2 sofas, 2 chairs and a grand custom upholstered tufted cocktail ottoman maximizing the impact of this home’s stunning room.
The adjoining dining room holds a reinvented classic double pedestal table with rounded dining chairs. Complimenting the home’s light fixtures, we added a touch of glam with the étagère, console, wall décor, blue-gray abstract area rug and accessories.
Light, fresh, airy and definitely classic is what the kitchen is calling for. We answered with a updated milk-painted Windsor chairs around a round metal based table with a fresh cool white stain. The breakfront buffet showcases unique hardware and a complimentary finish.
The master bedroom in the home has a restful, dreamy feel with the soothing color palette, dramatic French door, warming fireplace and magical mirrored chandelier. We added a grand tufted, upholstered bed in a neutral linen tone and asymmetrical bedside tables atop a subtle animal print rug. The nook with the low ceiling line has a cozy seating area for the gorgeous retreat.
