BEFORE AND AFTER





I finished this project last summer but am just now getting around to posting some images I had taken by the talented Tina Rowden.

This was a renovation where they took off the whole back of a 2 story home and added 2 bedrooms and a laundry room upstairs and new kitchen, mudroom, family room and screened in porch downstairs.

During the buildout I posted about the paint colors, kitchen, lighting and wallpaper.  You can find some of the before post here and here.


There are windows flanking the fireplace with storage cabinets underneath.
I used a simple valance which allows plenty of sunshine!  A great place to keep a fern alive!

Some accessories on the other side.


Now you are going to die....here are pictures of the before sofa and chair.  Since she still had young children she wanted to keep her furniture so we had the sofa and 2 chairs overhauled!

And here is the after....
Pretty amazing huh!



Here is a shot of the kitchen/dining area after the buildout but before the move in.


The after shot. Her original table and chairs.  We did have the 2 parsons recovered.

Before shot of the kitchen


Pretty?  The Pottery Barn barstools add some nice texture and are great with kids.
Dang it...never under estimate the power of a bowl of fruit!

I wasn't sure where I was going to put this old wooden corbel but the minute I placed it in this corner.... it added so much warmth to all of the white.

I have so much work to catch up on.....so today is going to be spent in the office.  Many thanks for all of the positive comments on our Show Room.  We had some pictures taken yesterday....can't wait to share.  I really can't look at it anymore...in fact I told Lori that I have obsessed over it so much I almost hate it.  Crazy huh? 

Stay warm....

So gorgeous, I know your clients are beyond thrilled. I imagine their sofa and chairs were of high quality to make the decision to recover versus purchase new when you factor in fabric and labor, they turned out amazing, it was quite a transformation. Always enjoy seeing your work. Sarah
