In the same Westside neighborhood as our very own Lauren and Eric's Mixed-Use Modern Dwelling, check out this home of Ryan and Leah Gale:

Ryan is a contractor in Kansas City, and he took on his own home with a minimalist renovation of a classic colonial style. Blending the old and new was a challenge: "It’s a new thing for me to be able to put a round peg in a square hole; to take a house where its bones and foundation are 1800s colonial and find a way to clean it up and make it minimal is difficult to do."

We love the blending and appreciate the way old (like the brick that appears from time to time) lives alongside the new. See the rest of the house and read all about the renovation at Kansas City Home and Garden. Images: Alistair Tutton
