What would John Staub do?
Kyle’s team started by redoing the roof with cedar shake shingles to match the originals, preserving the sunken garage, and emulating interior trim details. They also replaced a funky service addition with a high-functioning breakfast nook, family room and guest suite and returned a second-floor expansion to its original footprint.
For his part, Kehoe avoided a midcentury modern museum look in favor of a thoughtful blend of period pieces, such as a sectional from Jan Showers and glass-topped wheat-sheaf coffee table in the living room grouped with family antiques and frameless kitchen cabinets.
About the mixture of colors and styles Kehoe says: “The point was not to decorate the house. Instead, everything melds and complements the architecture.”
