“It’s a luxury to live in a gorgeously built and designed home,” says Texas-raised, Manhattan-based interior designer Sara Story. “But it means you are really obligated to pay attention to its original intention.” Such was the case in Niederhurst, her family home in upstate New York.

But instead of adopting the mantra of a historical classic, Story renovated the grand High Victorian Gothic estate with a nod to the past but also a resolutely contemporary aesthetic, working with Chicago-based architect Dirk Denison to revive the brick exterior and retain the existing molding and casework while adding entertaining essentials such as guest rooms and a wine cellar. In the entry, the floor is beautified with a graphic pattern of Carrara, Bleu de Savoie, and Nero Marquina marbles; flamboyant large-scale artwork by Otto Zitko transforms the dining room into a gallery-like exhibition space. Here, five ways Story infused an old house with modern flair.

Time Travel

Just because a home was built in a specific era doesn’t mean the interiors need to be faithful to that genre. Throughout her home, Story chose midcentury furnishings and lighting to give the house an unexpected dose of modernity.

Unexpected Details.

In place of confined artwork, Story commissioned a site-specific work by Otto Zitko, in which twisting black lines seem to jump off the classic white background.

Maximum Impact.

In the master bath, Story included a fascinating, lavishly veined Paonazzo marble that extends from the floors to the countertops and walls and feels at once classic and contemporary.

Gallery Style.

The modern artwork creates vibrant energy in the home. In the entry, a painting by Yayoi Kusama plays off flooring that’s lined with Carrara, Bleu de Savoie, and Nero Marquina marbles in a graphic pattern.

Prints Perfect.

Story embraced color and pattern in her children’s bedrooms, which take on a life of their own, here thanks to geometric-printed wall covers and vividly hued seating and accessories.
