Presenting a Designer Home Tour: Smalls Manor Pt. 2
Thursday Jun 27 2019

Get ready for part two of the stunning Smalls Manor, a historic home built in 1899 and located in the Avenues of Salt Lake City, Utah. This glorious home has recently been through a two-year design renovation completed by our own interior designer, Randi Smith. We are absolutely thrilled to give you an exclusive look inside of Randi's charming home. We had previously featured her lovely home on our blog during renovations, and if you missed it, be sure to check out the incredible before and after photos here

Randi felt the renovations that needed to take place should look fresh and modern, yet still capture the charm of a historical home. Classic and timeless materials were used to keep true to this home's historic roots. A fully-updated kitchen, complete with luxurious appliances, are definitely a highlight at Smalls Manor. We adore this bright, white kitchen with its accents of gold hardware and vintage pendant lighting. A large island was constructed in the center of the kitchen along with a counter bar to provide functional use and additional seating.

We admire the sharp contrast of black and white features within the kitchen. They are oh-so-handsome! Classic coloring and sleek custom cabinetry were combined to create a timeless and seamless look. Here is a quick reminder of what this kitchen looked like before renovations took place.

Randi also paid close attention to the architectural features of the home, such as crown molding and interior doors. She had a clear vision of how the interior details should be showcased and went to work on designing fashionable doors. These custom doors were made specifically for Smalls Manor, and the rich detailing of each door is amazing! We love the curvature and elegant lines of every unique interior door. They finish off the home perfectly.

Smalls Manor houses some incredible lighting fixtures. Everywhere you look there is a different visually stunning source of light. These kitchen pendant lights are a strong feature and visually echo a vintage look, which is ideal for this home.

This open living space is so welcoming and warm! The rich color palette is sophisticated yet casual. A custom sectional paired with a rich leather ottoman are ideal for this space.

Before this casual living space felt heavy and dark. A lighter bright paint and new window treatments completely transformed this room, The difference is amazing!

So many gorgeous details fill this room, and we love the idea of incorporating additional seating wherever you can. These sleek stools are tucked away perfectly but can be pulled out with ease if extra seating is needed!

These custom roman shades give a pop-of-pattern without overwhelming the space. Window treatments can add fantastic texture to a room and will also visually help "frame-in" your windows. We especially like how these Roman shades complement the gorgeous original stained-glass window in the center of the room.

Custom, cozy chairs are abundant at Smalls Manor. This particular chair style is one of our favorites! We adore the high-back and the plush luxurious seat on these custom accent chairs. The exposed wood also highlights the chic lines of the chair frame and gives definition to both chairs.

Off the kitchen is an endearing hallway filled with beautiful artwork (many art pieces are originals) that hold special meaning and are close to Randi's heart. Many of the art pieces are varied in scale and size making this hallway visually interesting. These fun art pieces have been arranged in a gallery-type styling which allows for flexibility to keep adding to her beautiful art collection with ease.

At the end of the charming hallway, a darling door opens up into a quaint powder bath. This magnificent bathroom is complete with black and white hexagon tiling, an ideal selection for keeping true to this home's original style.

As we journey upstairs, a lovely vignette is arranged at the top of the stairs which leads into the marvelous master bedroom.

A serene scene of tranquil bedding and plush pillows make this master bedroom heavenly! Natural textures, combined with light coloring, give a peaceful ambiance throughout this room. When it comes to bedding, it is a good idea to select versatile main bedding pieces. By keeping your main bedding pieces neutral, this will allow for flexibility to mix in a variety of accent throw pillows or playful prints. This is especially helpful when you may be itching to switch up your bedding seasonally.

A delightful seating area, complete with a lush velvet chaise lounge, adorns this master bedroom. Randi visualized a small seating area in the bedroom where she could relax in total comfort at the end of the day. Natural elements are carried throughout this gorgeous seating area, and the large textured rug brings in an organic feel to this space and creates a cohesive look. Grand french doors are dressed with the most spectacular pleated draperies and are the perfect finishing touch to this master suite.
