A 1920s French Normandy-style residence in Wilmette, Illinois, was updated for a family’s busy lifestyle. Modern interjections like a fringed burlap wallcovering behind the bookshelves and sumptuous furnishings ensure that this traditional house feels contemporary. Many original features, though, were left intact including crown molding, curved doorways and leaded-glass windows.
