A Classic 1930s Home in Grand Rapids Designed by Jean Stoffer
Interior designer Jean Stoffer made name for herself with her beautiful English-inspired kitchen designs. But since then, she has expanded her design journey, together with her daughter Grace, into full home renovations, a book (Establishing Home), a television show, and a home decor store in Grand Rapids called Stoffer Home.
Her interior design projects combine materials, textures, and color into classic home designs with a modern touch. This home in Grand Rapids was featured on The Established Home on the Magnolia Channel and has recently been put up for sale.
The home dates back to the 1930s and before Jean bought it in 2021 it had been owned by the same family since its construction. With intricate wood carvings, crown moldings, and elegant architecture this home already had a lot to offer. Jean renovated this historic home by embracing the historic details and making it ready for modern life.
Jean changed the layout of the ground floor. The kitchen moved to the living room, a bedroom turned into the family room, and the old kitchen became a mudroom, closet, and powder bath.
The ground floor now has an open and flowing layout with in every room a nice peek into the room next door.
Jean made a brave and slightly controversial choice in the living room by adding such a prominent bar/kitchen where you would normally see a television or fireplace.
The bar is made from the Stoffer Home Cabinetry collection in the color Cotswolds Green. All the other walls in the living room are painted in the same color.
The pantry is made from Stoffer Home Cabinetry in the color Chelsea Taupe.
The dining room is decorated with a Kelly Ventura wallpaper called “Verte”.
The powder room is decorated with Farm Weeds wallpaper desgined by Kelly Ventura.
On the first floor landing a cozy reading spot has been created in front of the window.
Teh grand master bedroom is decorated in light colors with blue as the accent color. A fireplace provides warmth and character.
Now this is what I call a master bathroom, how amazing. The dark blue tiles on the walls and the checkerboard floor tiles are both by Ann Sacks. The walls and ceiling are painted in “Jitney” by Farrow & Ball.
The bathroom vanities are designed by Jean Stoffer. You can buy these “Woodward” vanity cabinets on Stoffer Home Cabinetry. The sconces are for sale at Visual Comfort & Co.
The all-pink bedroom is painted in two shades of Benjamin Moore paint. They used “Tissue Pink” on the walls and “Groundhog Day” for the trimmings.
In total, the house has four spacious bedroom and four bathrooms. All bathroom are decorated with blue tiles.
