Authentic restoration requires expertise, vision, and passion.
Whether working with residential homes or house museums, Karla Pearlstein brings more than 20 years of experience to every project.
Reflections of a place in time
It starts with the right clients. Those who see a home as a reflection of a place in time, who value their role as stewards of the home’s identity, story, and context in history.
A comprehensive approach
Karla takes homeowners and house museum directors through a multi-faceted process, including an initial assessment, a design plan, hiring the right contractors, and sourcing authentic materials.
Period Home Restoration
Restoring a home to its era can be an overwhelming experience. Karla helps you discover the original story of your home and develop a restoration plan, and then takes your home back to its roots—without sacrificing the modern functionality you need.
Providing a period-authentic experience for house museums visitors requires an expert’s attention to detail. Karla conducts a thorough assessment, creates and implements a restoration plan, and assists you with developing a more interactive and engaging visitor experience.
“The goal is to strike a balance between preserving the historical elements and story while making it functional and desirable for people who have different needs today”
