Q&A with Owner and Lead Designer Haden Long and Interior Designer Sierra Penas
417 Home: What made you decide on this space?
Haden Long: We wanted something unique—a diamond in the rough. We had looked at some old office spaces and a few old houses on Walnut Street, but then this one came up. We only live a few blocks away, and it was a no-brainer.
417 Home: How was the renovation process?
H.L.: The house itself was really in great shape; it was just really dated. So, all the windows and the trim are original. We moved one wall and took out a bathroom, but most everything else in the house ended up being updated—there was tons of old wallpaper and cabinets from the ’80s. So, we updated everything about it, but the bones of the house were able to be maintained.
417 Home: What are some trends you’re loving for summer 2019?
Sierra Penas: Color! It comes and goes, but the Pantone color of the year is coral this year, so we’re doing a lot of blushes and pinks.
