Inside, Paula worked with an architect to design the new back end, which would hold a whole new kitchen downstairs and new bedrooms and master suite upstairs. What we wanted to do was keep the public parts of the house original and upgrade the spaces that people didn't really care about in 1911—like the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms.
Shown: The claw-foot tub in the downstairs bath was original to the house. Relocated from the second floor and refinished, it rests on new marble basket-weave tile surrounded by honed marble wainscot. A salvaged stained-glass window lets in light without compromising privacy.
