I’ve been sharing behind the scenes of this project over the last year and this fall we were able style and photograph it. We really didn’t make any changes to the layout, but I love how much difference finishes and accents can make in a space!
– THE FOYER BEFORE –
The existing entrance had some really great wall details, however, the beige on beige paint and tiles felt a little dated. We didn’t want to change anything too drastically, but just make some strategic changes that would have a big impact.
– THE FOYER AFTER –
We painted out the walls and trim in Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore, and it right away made the space feel so much more elegant. (I guess replacing the old tile with hardwood helped too!) For the furnishings, we used pieces that would keep the space feeling light and airy. Both the rug and console table are available through our shop, and I’ve shared the links below!
– THE EAT IN KITCHEN BEFORE –
The kitchen continued the beige tones, and the dark cabinetry and countertop made the space feel dark. Similar to the foyer, we didn’t want to make any structural changes, but instead update the finishes and fixtures.
The dining nook was a great space with a lot of natural light. The main changes we wanted to address here was the pendant light over the table, and making the patio door feel more like a feature.
– THE EAT IN KITCHEN AFTER –
When redesigning this space, we kept all the outside millwork white to keep it feeling open and airy. We added some contrast with the island to ground the space and give some visual interest.
