Tour a New Jersey Vintage Home Revamped by Designer Karen B. Wolf

Designer Karen B. Wolf set out to make this Montclair, NJ home, built in 1891, suitable for a busy family of five that includes three boys under 10. Her passion for designing spaces with “modern elegance” is evident throughout the open floor plan, from the color palette to her use of natural materials. “We wanted to bring a relaxed, warm, modern vibe with a touch of boho to the space,” she says.

To achieve the homeowner’s desired look and feel, she mixed warm neutrals and soothing blue hues to accent the vintage home’s beautiful architecture.
