Okay, get ready for some serious eye candy. I know that term usually refers to attractive people and that I might be misleading you. For clarification, I’m a design nerd, so if I say “eye candy,” I’m usually referring to a great home or inspirational image.
Percy bought this 1915 house around 13 months ago, and from what I can tell, I received these images just after the last drop of paint had dried and the last picture was hung. According to Percy, this was six months beyond schedule, but the extra time was well worth it. I’m very impressed by the restrained sophistication in each room; the rustic, textured accent walls; and the expert eye for combining antiques.
(Note: If you are swooning over a particular antique, there’s a chance you can snag it! Percy is listing some of the antique and vintage items from his home on his online shop Jersey Ice Cream Co.)
Anyway, I could keep gushing, but I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves. Percy was kind enough to send us before and after images for various rooms in the house, so we’ve split them into two posts. Keep reading to see the entryway, kitchen and studio makeovers, and stay tuned for part II — the guest bedroom, master bedroom and bathroom — later today. Needless to say, I think you did an amazing job, Percy! — Kate
