This half-bathroom was renovated by the homeowners themselves. After a fresh coat of white on the walls, the ceiling was painted seafoam green. Matching accessories create a polished look from top to bottom.
The homeowner's newly renovated kitchen is shown. The wall section dividing the kitchen and dining room has been removed, allowing a straight line of site through the whole first floor. The refrigerator now stands where the old sink previously was, and the old window closed up. A new slightly smaller kitchen island allows the same bar stools to fit comfortably in the narrow room. The sink has moved below the other back window. A clean white color scheme, updated stainless steel appliances and modern overhead lighting create a contemporary feel to the space without changing the room's size.
The new mudroom has hooks, storage, and a place for everyone's things. The polished concrete floors help contain the mess and make for an easy clean, while the bench gives the family an easy space to take off their dirty shoes.
This guest bathroom is given a modern touch with the slate gray walls, streamlined sink and modern light fixtures. The natural wood mirror brings in a splash of the rustic design, striking the balance that the couple was looking for. The dark walls will help keep stains and dirt at bay in this guest bathroom, while maintaining a stylish look for the guests.
Stone column bases, a new front door, new windows, dark wood shutters and rustic sconces make for a dramatic front entrance that integrates well with the Italian country vibe of the newly remodeled interior.
The home’s curb appeal was updated by installing a new entry door and sidelights; new windows, including an enlarged opening for the second-floor living room; new fiber cement siding for the upper level; and a new garage door. The designers focused on increasing transparency and accentuating the horizontal character of the simple form.
The homeowners of this 1930s Tudor wanted a modest renovation to improve their kitchen and open the space to the rest of the house. As the project continued to evolve, renovations continued into to the family room, guest room, bathroom, main entry, sunroom, dining room, art room and a new breakfast room. The garage is laid out at an angle to the original family room, opening up the courtyard for vehicles and providing access to a mudroom door and the side turret entrance.
