Decades years after a house was featured in H&H, we share a second look inside. See what the space looked like back in 1995 compared to today! Plus, discover how high-quality furniture can stand the test of time.

With an empty nest, designer Shelley Kirsch gave her family home a modern update. She wanted her home to reflect the same aesthetic as before, but with a more current look. Shelley started by giving the trim a fresh coat of paint to hide chips. In the kitchen, she took down the wall that separated the space from the dining area and added a segmented window to bring more natural light to the main floor. Next, she repurposed her existing furniture. The dining table was re-stained to a dark walnut, while the sofa was given a facelift with new slip covers. The basement, which used to be the kids’ domain, was transformed into an adult lounge area.
