Champagne Press's Ericcson Creekside
Julie & Ben's Ericcson classic has a storied lineage. Their family built the home in 1947, and it has been passed down within for 60 years! This is a particular project that we would have loved to have before photos, as the staging & design of our presale process was a remarkable change orchestrated by J Jorgensen design. The home is nestled two blocks north of Minnehaha Creek, and two blocks south of the locally bright corner happenings 42nd and 28th ave. Walkability is the main event amongst Minneapolis neighborhoods, which is why Ericcson has become of our favorite sleepers within our urban landscape.
Art Deco originality is beaming from the main floor bath. The original bath artisan tile is commonly overlooked, we recommend consulting a design professional who appreciates architecture, as creating a updating twist on original touches results in spectacular classic home appeal. In this case, an oak butcher top, adjoining a wide dimensioned ceramic sink creates some flair in a previously drab space.
Tired carpeting was pitched in the main floor bedrooms, making way for a quick sand and re-coat by our hardwood artisan. Our aesthetic for small spaces leaves no room for changes in flooring surfaces or wall color, less is more in homes of character.
These two photos are of spaces within the home that would ordinarily be overlooked in the design and staging process. The above space is the suburban "loft" that exists in many townhomes across the nation. Family photos are a major misconception, we feel strongly about having the spirit of the owners represented at least subtly in the interior.
