Betsy and Peter Olmsted share their home with their two boys Emmett (7) and Wells (4), as well as Winnie the mature-madam shepherd mix, Hank the French bulldog, and Archer the leopard gecko. Their home was originally a Victorian carriage house and barn that was used for three neighboring mansions, built in 1890 when it also had three deeds. The 5,400-square-foot home was created from the converted spaces in 2008, and the Olmsted family moved in and made it their own a year ago. The downstairs features an open plan, their den, and the attached stables that became The Betsy Olmsted Design Studio — Betsy’s namesake textile company, Betsy Olmsted, which features a line of printed vibrant watercolor infused textile housewares with her whimsically sophisticated illustrations (which are heavily inspired by animals and nature). Upstairs you’ll find more open spaces, three bedrooms and baths, a study, and even a screened-in sleeping porch.
While Sarah reconfigured the space to make it work for the family while honoring its past, she and Sam worked in tandem to infuse the home with energizing colors and other eye-catching design elements. Take a spin through the whole tour to see how color and history interplay harmoniously to give the Arcade family the space they need in the neighborhood they love. —Kelli
Growing up, there were few things I wanted more than bunk beds. Well, bunk beds and backstage passes to a New Kids on the Block concert. As an only child, bunk beds were never a realistic option, so I’ve always wanted to find a way to sneak them into my grown-up home for some reason. Until we have children I don’t think it will happen, but I keep pinning and bookmarking creative bunk beds that would work well for little ones and adults alike. So today I’m celebrating 10 of my favorites that are great reminders that bunk beds can be a fantastic way to get creative with your DIY skills — and relive some childhood decorating fantasies in a modern way. xo, grace
