Do you love it? I absolutely do. For reference, here is what the space looked like before...
Isn't the transformation insane????
I mentioned in my previous post that this was a full interior and exterior remodel project. We took the main floor down to the studs in order to achieve the look and feel my clients desired. They asked for an updated, bright, clean yet comfortable space, where their family could gather without the distraction of a tv in the background.
When I first saw the space, I was immediately struck by the awkward placement of the fireplace. I decided to move the fireplace from the corner to the center of the room and add a window, where the fireplace previously was. This created a focal point in the room and also allowed us to create a symmetry with the windows. We placed the old windows with new gridded windows. The new windows are black on the outside and white on the inside, which was a complete win - win for my design of this house. I designed the new mantel and fireplace wall to be trimmed out and painted Simply White by Benjamin Moore. My finish carpenter also cased and trimmed the new windows. The walls were then painted Classic Gray by Benjamin Moore. We replaced the old carpet and tile floor with quarter sawn white oak floors, which were then stained a gorgeous, rich brown.
The living room was finished off with all new furniture, accessories and a gorgeous piece of art. The result is a fresh and bright, beautifully transformed space.
My amazing clients were such troopers during the whole remodel process. They moved their family of seven into the basement while my team and I took over the top two floors of their home, for almost 5 months! They were happy and smiling through the entire process. They put 110% of their trust in me. I am so grateful to them for that. The homeowners have repeatedly expressed how their newly remodeled home has surpassed any expectations they may have had going into the project. For me, hearing that, is the ultimate reward.
Stay tuned for the full reveal of the kitchen and dining area!!
