Despite the fact that Marcella and Justin have only lived in their home for a handful of months, they’ve already begun making it their own. They were lucky to have found a home (dream home, no less!) that was move-in ready — all that was left to do was make it feel personalized. Marcella immediately got to work putting her stamp on the powder and living rooms. As someone who appreciates the charm that comes with an older home, Marcella wanted to be sure to keep all of that intact — and, in fact, add as much back in as she could.
Rose’s clients, who are active grandparents and world travelers, asked her to make the space more habitable for an adult daughter and grandchild currently residing there. In this section of the house, she was tasked with creating kids’ and guest rooms, as well as bathrooms, with an open design that would accommodate different uses and aesthetic tastes, depending on the user at any given time. One room that was designed with special care was the client’s office. Previously, things just seemed to find their way into the space for storage. Rose created an elegant home office that touched on all the functional needs, even down to adding a sleeper sofa for company. Another challenge was the six-week timeline from initial design to orders, deliveries, and installation. Within this window, Rose and her company had to clear four rooms and gut two bathrooms, then rebuild them from the bottom-up.

It was a former university frat house, and they spent their first years of marriage renovating it top to bottom.
