The Faraci Project // Source Guide

I loved the Faraci family! They are so lovely and loving and their demands were rather simple! They wanted a simple and well designed home to be together as a family and to entertain in. The first floor of their house was separated by three walls when we got our hands on it. And of course, I removed them ALL. We wanted those in the kitchen to be able to see out the front window. And we wanted a more welcome communal living space for them.

They wanted a fresh and modern farmhouse style, so we gave them all the classic fixings; subway tile, butcher block counters, classic white cabinets, open shelving, farm table down the center of the kitchen, simple design and decor. And I played with all of these features over the original and very beat up wooden floors. Though they started out as a kind of disaster to try to make them work, they ended up being my favorite feature of the home. Ain’t that how it happens. The rough and vintage floor really adds life to the clean lines of the new kitchen.

And you know what else adds life?!? That amazing modern “sculpture” of a stair case that Ed Zeiler from Wood N Wrench made us! We had to totally reconfigure where the staircase went after ripping walls out, so we played with the new “railing/wall” And made it a design feature.

Other fun touches, we did Board and Batton on the INSIDE of the home for a change. It was a simple and economical way to bring texture and character into this home. In the front you see a white chandelier that I TRIED to make… I would say this is one of those examples of letting art evolve…I certainly never set out to make the light look like that, but let’s just say it really “wanted to” ūüėČ The family made me feel better when they said it looks like something from the MOMA. I don’t know about that… but I’ll take it!!!

Love, Lee
