Millstream House – The Right Balance Between Preservation and Modern

Millstream House - The Right Balance Between Preservation and Modern (1)

Located in Salt Lake City, Millstream House is the result of collaboration between designer Andrea Beecher and cityhomeCOLLECTIVE.

Description by Andreea Beecher: Bottom line: I’m smitten with my job, ever in the midst of a happy dance. I get the all-too-frequent honor of helping people create the space they dream of. Most recently, I had the amazing opportunity to work with Forest Seaman [of DFS Construction] and Christopher Day on their gorgeous little mid-century modern fixer on Millstream Drive. You saw it last week, right? It wasn’t available for long — she zipped under contract just as quickly as we put her on the market.

It was a run down, forgotten mid-mod home needed a lot of love [see a couple of before shots here], and the guys trusted me to know precisely what kind of lovin’ was needed for a clean fix. I’ve mentioned it before, but it’s worth repeating: knowing which elements of a home are worth saving and which to let go of can make or break a remodel…particularly for a well-designed space like this one. I did my best to create a game-plan and, praise be to Betsy, they made my vision a stunning reality. It was the result of a winning team, really. If I could dream it, Forest was capable of creating it. They trusted my design implicitly, and I trusted the craftsmanship without hesitation. It was a recipe for fun and indulgence, and it’s as close to a perfect mix as you can get for a project like this one [we needn’t lay out every design element. Rather, take a minute to peek at the lovely photos below]. Hopefully, the results speak for themselves. Really, nothing compliments your hard work like a bidding war right outta the gate.
