Older homes are beloved because of their character and history, but renovating them isn’t the most budget-friendly undertaking. You never know what you’ll uncover when gutting rooms or changing up the layout. Sam Salinas of We Three Design and Kirsten Grove from We Three Design were challenged to restore and update this 1902 home with five bedrooms and two bathrooms in Boise while keeping the budget tight.
“Our clients wanted the home to feel historical,” Sam says. “They didn’t want to lose out on the history that surrounded the story of this house. The biggest goal in this design was to stay in budget but create a place that guests talk about for years to come.”
Sam and Kirsten collected dozens historical images from all over the world to use in their design. “The common theme included dark and moody paint colors with a variety of textures and patterns,” Kirsten adds.
