When a young couple purchased this formal, colonial-style home in Cherokee Park in March 2020, they knew the house didn’t quite fit their personal style. Over a two-year period, Natalie Officer and Julie Metzinger of Natalie O Design worked collaboratively to develop the interior design, space planning, and renovation detail to transform the formerly traditional space into a more transitional abode.

“Our job was to deconstruct it in an artful way that catered to a much younger and less traditional family structure,” Officer told The Courier Journal. “It was not an approachable home for people who are world travelers, and who have that global reference. We wanted to make it feel comfortable.”

She adds that the homeowners appreciated the original architecture, but didn’t want to feel confined by it. Together, she and Metzinger created a more open and personalized space while honoring the home’s traditional bones.
