About the Home
Located at 96 Janssen Place, Kansas City, MO., this 1911 house was built for a lumber baron. Between 1897 and 1917, Janssen Place attracted many wealthy individuals, many associated with the lumber and construction profession — thus it's title "Lumberman's Row."
Each of the home’s rooms, halls, gardens and even some of the closets have been decorated by a juried designer.
Erica Kay Design was awarded the 1st level breakfast nook.
Erica Kay was selected for the third consecutive year and was awarded the Breakfast nook bump-out. Located just off the kitchen, the breakfast nook is filled with natural light making it perfect for sipping morning coffee while reading the newspaper. Inspired by vibrant blues and yellows, this room is sure to paint a smile on someone’s face each and every morning.
