Cover story and feature in Classic American Home

We had the pleasure of having one of our projects featured in an issue of Classic American Home. See below for a few snippets from the piece, and click on the cover or the link at the bottom to see the full spread.

While this home’s classic exterior reflects the rich history of its Bucks County, Pennsylvania neighborhood, the owners wren’t afraid of adding a splash of color indoors. Interior designer Gregg Kiesel had a green light for a palette featuring brilliant yellow, cobalt blue, and periwinkle and the goal of tailoring the 10-year-old home for entertaining. “It had to be designed to be used,” says Kiesel, who is based in New Hope. “Not only does this family entertain—a sit-down dinner for 50 as well as a wedding have been held here—but the house is home to a parrot, two dogs, and cats. It had to be user friendly, but we didn’t wan it to look that way.”

The setting is idyllic: 10 acres with a circular drive leading up to the house surrounded by a pond with swans, gardens, and a natural stone pool. For the living areas, Kiesel set about creating a space that flowed by uniting colors of the main-level family room, kitchen, dining room, living room, and master bedroom suite.
