A Visit to Kevin and Allan's...part 1

Kevin and Allan are remodelers extraordinaire!  They have renovated four houses that I have seen. When we visit our daughter Vicky in Maplewood, New Jersey, she knows that I'll want to see Kevin's latest project. On our last visit we were invited to their home for a casual brunch with neighborhood friends. 
I brought my camera this time!
The living room. I take my time to really look around and enjoy every detail. There is so much to notice.
The leaded glass transom window, moldings and casings, the ceiling, steps, benches, fireplace, all the wonderful architectural details found in an older home.
 All restored by a very talented Kevin.
The living room has two seating areas.
The sofa table that divides the space has a collection of crystal candlesticks
and two beautiful Chinese lamps.
Blue and white with the complimentary orange accents. 
You can see the fireplace in the background.
I love the ceiling and vintage chandelier in this room. Beyond those beautiful leaded glass doors is the breakfast room. In my next post I'll take you to brunch! ...part 2
