The client wanted to create a room to serve as her TV watching room most of the time, but that could also serve as an occasional guestroom. She wanted to find something cheerful, yet relatively modern that would look good against the freshly painted fushia walls.
The furniture in the client's living room was old and out of date. She wanted a whole new design with a modern flair, that would seat at least six people, and give her a comfortable and inviting place to entertain guests or curl up and read.
This house came with a crazy 3-part deck, no part of which was really large enough to be useful. A demo and rebuild of the deck also includes adding a beautiful pergola.
A porch floor that was rotting provides opportunity for a few additional improvements in this lovely old covered porch.
A generous floored space in the attic becomes a great place for an office, sewing nook, library, and a plush daybed on which to read.
Too many doorways and not enough closets provides the impetus for closing off the end of this hallway and adding a coat closet.
The look of this tiny laundry room is greatly improved with rich colored paint, and white painted beadboard and trim (actually, laundry hallway
would be more accurate).
A new wall and pocket door improves the look and function of this tiny bathroom.
Turning the plain white walls in this bathroom into a showcase for rich colors in both paint and paintings led to some other design changes in advance of a still longed-for remodel.
Bright color and new lighting make a good kitchen better, until a more major remodel can be undertaken.
With family and friends always hanging out in the kitchen during visits, a seating area in the large dining room/kitchen space is both welcoming and practical.
This dining room only requires a few cosmetic changes, like paint and trim, to be more welcoming.
