Purchase, renovations, and an official “sold sign” in the yard…we were in and out of this project in less than 12 weeks! In the real estate industry, if you want to grow it’s crucial that you have to have the ability to move quickly and deliver top notch product…
Originally built in the 1960’s, this house needed an update in the worst way. The house had solid bones and a unique layout to work with, so many of the renovations were cosmetic – which is always a plus. The previous owner had added an addition which really helped give the home the room it needed to accommodate an average sized family.
One of my favorite transformations in this project was the kitchen. The kitchen is truly the heart of the home and the one place that many families spend the majority of their time. Whether you’re someone who likes to entertain, cook, or have fellowship around the dining table – The design of the kitchen in any home is CRUCIAL!! We went with a soft white cabinet from Superior Cabinets called Prosecco and did the floating shelves and hood fan box in a color called, Iron Ore. We really love how the Iron Ore pops against the white surrounding cabinets. We finished off the kitchen with Blanco Maple Quartz countertops. Here are some before & after’s of the space!
The dining room and living room flow seamlessly together, which makes this entire space perfect for entertaining. We sourced décor from lots of our favorite local vendors such as Rooted SK, Sweet Pea Honey Bees, and Diamond and Willow. Here’s a look at some of their pieces staged in the house – all of which are for sale!!
A couple other favorite spots in the house are the master bedroom, ensuite and extra living space off the back of the house. These are all super spacious and laid out in a way that they can be used for so many different functions. The design of this house was all based around a very bohemian / coastal feel and I brought a lot of that into the home with color. Our overall wall color used was a Benjamin Moore color called, Silver Satin. The medium blue tone that we used in the second living room and as an accent in the master bedroom is also a Benjamin Moore color called, Waters Edge. Last, but certainly NOT LEAST (hehe) is the pink that we used in the master ensuite and on the inside of the front door to make a statement in the living room. This color is one of my favorites and is from the Benjamin Moore, Rosetone.
Below is a list of some of our favorite décor pieces that we purchased to stage in the home, and where we sourced each one from…Along with this is a list of paint colors used throughout.
