This understated house in St. Paul is a satisfying mix of old and new: the 1922 house was restored, an addition accommodates the kitchen, and the new summerhouse welcomes guests. Rooms inside are warm with glazes and stenciling.
Collaboration is alive and well in the revival of Arts and Crafts. This installation for a client in Santa Rosa was conceived by Debey Zito, who designed and built the fireplace woodwork, the light fixture, and the chair (with a copper falcon inlaid in the side panel). Her partner Terry Schmitt did the carving.
