Each room is a remarkable composition in this Middletown, Rhode Island, house with a past. On the edge of the Sakonnet River, the home was built in 1883 and originally owned by Edwin Booth, one of the great Shakespearean actors of his time and the brother of John Wilkes Booth. Today’s homeowners, Larry and Kim, turned to architect David Andreozzi to revive the design and make it truly their own. “I want the architecture to be partly representative of their soul,” says Andreozzi.
Throughout the process, Larry and Kim were open to new creative ideas. “Rather than get a chandelier, I want to make your ceiling a chandelier,” Andreozzi told Larry and Kim who were excited about the vision. “That’s someone who has faith in the artistic process.”
The dining room is also a stunning arrangement of design details that fell right into place. “I will say it is the most favorite dining room I’ve ever designed,” says Andreozzi. “It has the water view but directly opposite you have the beautiful stairway, and the ceiling ties it all together.”
