Next up: the large-scale renovation of the third floor's undefined attic, where slanted walls, few windows, and floor-to-ceiling original unfinished beadboard left it feeling dark and airless. The homeowners envisioned it as both a private and a social space for their teenage sons, complete with built-in beds and a furnished area where they could kick back with their friends. "They wanted it to be lively and fun," Palumbo says, "while respecting the historical nature of the house."
Beadboard-fronted built-ins, barn-style sliding doors, and a fresh color palette enliven the new attic retreat.
