Victorian Reinvention 

Loosening the laces on an 1890s Victorian while respecting her history called for a series of deft moves inside and out. Due to its historic designation in Larkspur, the front façade of the house couldn’t be touched, but a top to bottom renovation inside not only captured new space for the children’s bedrooms and master suite from the unfinished basement and attic but also created an expansive living area on the main floor, which now flows seamlessly from the house out to the pool terrace and garden. Painted white boards on the walls, salvaged oak floors, and a mix of contemporary and antique light fixtures tread a refreshing line between traditional and modern.
