Warming the Home with Batchelder
There was a film of frost on the trees and sidewalks all through Ladd’s Addition this morning, turning our thoughts to hearths and what gathering places they become in an older home. All too often the original hearths have been remodeled into oblivion in a ’20s or ’30s home. Its always a pleasure to have the opportunity to restore one to its original purpose and distinctive character.
A few years back we had the opportunity to restore a custom tile fireplace in Eastmoreland for the clients of one of our design colleagues, Kathia Emery of Emery & Associates.
The design featured tiles made by Earnest Batchelder, a key artist of the Arts and Crafts Movement.

Turned out beautifully…
