Project Description

Wilmette, IL | Private Residence

Our team has deep experience working with older homes including this 100+ year old residence in Wilmette, IL, where we painstakingly refinished the hardwood staircase, rail and trim.

Adding to the unique challenge, the design called for an alternating color scheme, with color variances between the outside trim & risers – and the spindles & posts. A typical approach would be to paint the trim, but we wanted to illustrate contrast while showcasing the natural beauty of this 100+ year old wood. By using multi-colored stain blends, the results were both stunning and beautiful. Our team then refinished the first floor of the home, as well bookcases around the fireplace, matching the colors throughout and creating natural color flow through the entire home.
