2013 is the 26th Annual Ainsworth Holiday Home Tour and we at Donna DuFresne Design are excited to be a part of this special event. One of our clients has a stunning Colonial Revival in the Heights and just happens to be one of the stops on the tour. So, we and Bloke teamed up to give this lovely home a festive make over! To learn more about the Ainsworth Holiday Home Tour and how it benefits the children and their school, follow this link.
"The oldest home on the tour, this 1911 Colonial Revival is also one of the most historically intact. Walking through the house, you will get a true sense of the features found in finer residences of the era: the original (still operable) intercom system, dust chutes on every floor, servants' staircase, original light fixtures, steam radiators, a laundry chute, secret panels, sinks and fireplaces in the bedrooms, custom shaped windows and screens, and plentiful built-ins. While retaining all of these elements, the home has been decorated with tasteful elegance that honors tradition, yet infuses it with 21st century style."
We wanted to share some photos showing how all the hard work paid off. Although, we would strongly recommend taking a look in person because the photos just don't do it justice!
