Before the renovation, this bathroom was a mess with a broken window, a missing sink, paint-spattered tile and no toilet or running water. As the main bathroom that guests will use, it needs to be beautiful and functional.
This work space area offers a place for the Fuchs children to do their homework on the floating desk suspended by steel cables. Before the renovation, this area was the kitchen, as seen on Fixer Upper.
Ironically enough, before even knowing what the room was once used for, designer Young Huh envisioned it as an art studio—the overhead lighting is that good! Her magical design, called “Young at Art,” explores the allure of an artist’s studio. The walls are covered with Fromental’s Braque (a large-scale collage inspired by Cubism) while a Mason Gerard easel and an array of abstract art complete the design.
The closet, painted a bold pink and filled with cans of paint and figurine palm trees, was a happy surprise.
Before, this small living space lacked color and charm. The addition of all-new furniture injects character and functionality, while a textured wall covering adds new life to the living room's walls, ceiling and fireplace. To hide TV cords, an alcove is made from lumber and planks of paint-grade pine. Keeping the wires concealed inside the alcove allows for a seamless and sophisticated look.
Bringing wood furniture back to life after a year or two outdoors can seem daunting, but it’s actually very easy and oh-so-satisfying when you’re done. This wooden chaise longue had seen better days after laying out under the sun and rain for a year. It was sun-bleached and a bit grimy, but overall still in great structural shape.
A graphic blue rug covers the floor space and adds visual interest to the living room. Midcentury modern furnishings create an elegant space to gather with friends and family before and/or after dinner.
In this home, an arching brick doorway leads from the kitchen out to a covered patio, the ideal spot for entertaining guests before or after dinner. Beyond the stone columns, the lawn stretches out to views of farmland and mountains beyond.
