Berkeley is rich with Arts and Crafts homes. Grace Fisher wanted to enhance this character. Built-in bookshelves at the fireplace and dining room cabinetry tied in original architecture and the wood clad coffered dining room ceiling added to the characteristics of this era. Distinctive lighting in the dining and living room gave the space an "artist's" feel. A kitchen counter and cabinet update refreshed the often used room while new custom blinds added privacy and whimsy. Environmental concerns were addressed by using low VOC paint, sustainable woods and natural fibers were possible.
