Often times when designers take on a renovation of an old home, the space loses its amazing history as the walls are brought down. However this was not the case in one incredible transformation of an early 1900s Park Slope limestone. While the homeowners and designer wanted to modernize the four-story residence, preservation of the building's incredible bones was a top priority.

"Our clients shared our instinctual approach, which was to tread lightly around the original architecture and in areas we were updating — the kitchen, bathrooms, and a few other key rooms — to design in a way that blended with the existing architecture and felt like it could have always been there," shares senior designer Chelsie Lee of Jessica Helgerson Interior Design. "We liked the idea of having the historic interior's architectural background shine by painting all the walls white."

The results? A truly original space that blends colorful modern designs with vintage charm. Click ahead to explore the home and learn more about the thoughtful renovations.
