Kitchen ideas abound in the heart of the home, where you'll find pretty-as-picture floral wallpaper, a heritage checkerboard floor, beautiful green and blue hues and an authentic timber ceiling.

Describing the home as 'part city townhouse and part country manor house', Fulk says of the interiors: 'Warm wood tones with accents of brass, glass and marble complement the industrial history of the neighborhood.'

Spanning 6,014 square feet, the home is replete with historical details, such as original barrel vaulted ceilings, and has two massive, open-plan living spaces, connected by an elegant internal staircase.

Upstairs, the open-plan format really comes into its own, with statement drop chandeliers and color-pop furniture in pinks and greens adding glamour to that impressive historic ceiling.

This upstairs level is more urbane, or 'citified' as Fulk describes it, with chevron floors and Art Deco detailing in deep green lacquered wood paneling with brass and glass accents. This is the more formal level, with room for formal living and dining areas, and a built-in marble swathed buffet.

The bathroom ideas are a maximalist's dream, with bold-print wallpapers ranging from flamingo pinks to jungle print and floral fabulousness.
