A Heritage Home Decked Out In Vintage Finds
Homeowner Susan Bernard shares the design process behind her heritage home, transformed in collaboration with designer Susan Burns. See how they melded the home’s 19th-century charm with a mix of modern pieces and antiques — just in time for the homeowner’s daughter’s wedding!
Entertaining is an essential part of Susan and her husband’s lifestyle, so they expanded the space and added symmetry with a mix of industrial and vintage elements. Exposed brick and reclaimed wood floors preserve the home’s original character, while heirloom pieces, like an antique table passed down from Susan’s grandmother, bring personality to the space. A reclaimed fireplace is the focal point in the living room, while an Egyptian cement tile backsplash brightens up the otherwise neutral kitchen. Take a look inside each room that features storied items rich in history.
