Scope From a Basement to Entertainment Room Styled after a 1840’s Tavern
The owners of this federal village townhouse had a fun idea, and Redpoint helped them execute it to perfection. Their home had a large, stone-walled basement and they love Bump Tavern at the Farmers’ Museum, so they decided to turn the space into a suite of rooms for entertaining.
Everything is new; the wide plank details were hand planed just as they would have been in the 1800’s so it looks more like an uncovered treasure than a basement remodel. The family dressed the room with period furniture making every event in the space feel like a trip back in time to the local tavern. When the fire is burning and snow is falling on the sidewalk outside you could be forgiven for forgetting your usual cares for a little while.
