At Doug and Wendy Banks’ 1925 North Asheville home, a breakfast nook was sacrificed to create a spacious galley kitchen. Warm white Shaker cabinets, antique pewter hardware, and ecole-style pendant lights lend classic appeal while still feeling new.
In addition to landscaping by Design Associates, the exterior was refreshed with new roofing, copper gutters, stonework repair, and paint.
Dark bronze trim and a punch of brick red on the original door accent the neutral palette.
In the master bedroom, one of the windows had been obscured with shelves. The renovation involved restoring the windows, repairing and painting the stucco walls, and refurbishing all the light fixtures.
The doorknobs throughout are all original.

The main bathroom was taken down to the studs to allow for a new shower, toilet, and dual sink vanity. Inset framed mirrors, one of which was original, conceal cabinets.
Subway tiles in a matte linen finish, light blue paint, and a glass shower door lend a sense of spaciousness.
