To those of you that follow along on Instagram, you’ve seen a bit of the process behind the latest renovation project that I helped to design. The owners are some of the kindest people who entrusted their home to the builders (Steve Hackman Builders) and myself while they were away in FL for a few months. During that time, a major renovation took place updating their home and bringing it from a dated time period into the present with a classic appeal. I came to refer to it as the ‘Stone Wall Project’ because that was a dramatic feature in the home that we inevitably had to work around. Thankfully I remembered to snap some before pictures because they make the afters all the more dramatic!
This wall was a very predominant feature in the main living space of the home. The stone was in great shape but the black grout did not do anything for the space. Thankfully, some of the guys were on board with tackling this project (which didn’t necessarily bother the homeowners) and re-grouted the stone. The result made all the difference in the world. And the crazy part is that the stone was left untouched!
Let’s move on to the kitchen from here. Some cabinetry was removed, the rest was refinished but otherwise left unchanged. Everything else, however, was updated, resulting in a major facelift.
Here’s the after…
Green was already a color the homeowners loved and it complimented the orange wood tones beautifully, so I ran with that color but in a more updated hue.
The counters went from three levels to one which changed the whole feel of the kitchen leaving it to appear much more spacious and open.
Some upper cabinets were removed and the base was extended. In an effort to work with the remaining bulkhead (which would have opened a whole other can of worms to remove), I decided to add three pendants to the seating area. I love the result and how it tied everything together.
The dining room is just off the kitchen, so we we refreshed the room with a complimentary paint color and switched out the lighting.
The new light fixture in the entryway welcomes guests in a dramatic way!
New flooring throughout makes one of the biggest differences…
Three bathrooms also got some major attention. Here’s their first floor master before…
And the second floor master before…
And finally their hallway bath before…
We kept the cabinetry, but updated the counter, flooring, fixtures, mirror and toilet…
They also have the prettiest living room with some magnificent views. Here’s the before…
With some fresh paint and new carpet…
The best part of this project, without a doubt, was being able to greet the owners when they arrived home from their trip. I felt like there should have been HGTV cameras following us around!! Outside of a few pictures, they had not been present during any of the remodeling process. They were overjoyed with the results and the looks on their faces said it all. I’m already planning to help them track down new furniture and window coverings, so I’m thankful this won’t be the end of getting to enjoy this place in person!
