Good Morning sweet friends! I hope you’re all doing well! I am dealing with a bad cold today. Bummer! While I am lying on the sofa trying to feel better, I decided it would be the perfect time to show y’all a few before and after pics. This house belongs to one of my clients. I have renovated their home in Dalton, Georgia, and now their vacation home in Ocoee, Tennessee. I love the transformation of this home!
The house was built in the 70’s.
The living room, kitchen and dining room we’re all separate rooms.
I knew I wanted to open the space up and create a larger living area.
First things first, the walls had to go!
With the walls gone, we had to have some support. I decided to create a huge island and incorporate beams for our structural support.
We were able to Open up all of the walls just by adding the two support beams in the center and one across the top.
We totally gutted in the kitchen. The new white cabinets with wood accents made a huge difference in the space!
I wanted to bring some warmth in with the wood tones.
I used the stained shelves, a stained accent trim on the range hood and the stained beams. Whenever I am working a new color into a room, I like to pull it in in at least three different spaces. This makes it look intentional and not like an afterthought.
The owner had a gorgeous collection of antique Jadeite. I was so excited to create a display using it on the open shelves.
She also had a gorgeous collection of FiestaWare dishes. We created a colorful Tablescape using her collection.
Another huge transformation with this fireplace. We painted the bookcases, white washed the brick and added a new stained mantle.
We also added shiplap walls and new stained wood and metal stair rails.
Don’t get me wrong, I love a new build, but there’s something so satisfying about taking some thing old and bringing new life to it!
What about you? Are you team New Build or Reno?
We renovated this entire house. I’m planning on creating a separate blog post for the bedrooms and bathrooms next week. Stay tuned to see the rest of this awesome renovation.
Until next time sweet friends!
With Much Love,
