MASTER BEDROOM With a passion for midcentury style and a boundless DIY spirit, Jenelle Isaacson and Zoltan Dubrawsky diligently restored their 1956 split-level. The bedroom’s built-in bed and side tables are all original. Out of sight is the dressing area: a wall of closets with original Pella wood accordion doors facing a dressing table and drawers that match those beside the bed.

LIVING ROOM The Arizona rainbow flagstone of the fireplace extends on to an indoor planter and wraps around the outside of the house, reappearing on planters at the front door. The entertainment center, with its Moorish screen, fits the family’s new flat-screen television perfectly. Below a bench conceals a firewood box that can be stocked through the basement.

BACK DECK Dubrawsky built an extension of the original cedar deck and removed decaying planter boxes. The cedar siding had originally been stained a dark red but needed a coat of paint to seal it. Designer Shannon Baird (sbairddesign.com) helped Isaacson choose the color: Graphite by Pratt & Lambert (prattandlambert.com).

KITCHEN Dubrawsky loves to cook and bake, but the kitchen is one-third the size of the couple’s previous two kitchens. However, he and Isaacson find the kitchen surprisingly efficient thanks to clever storage features. The gold-flecked Formica countertops and mosaic tile backsplashes are original. There’s even a matching tile trivet that came with the house.
