Older House Renovation Before and After

I thought we'd take a break from the beach house update and give you a sneak peek into another renovation I worked on this past year. This was an old house built in the early 1900's that was rehabbed beautifully by a local builder. The house was taken down to the studs and completely gutted.

You can read more about this home here and here.

The client and I worked together on the finishes, lighting, flooring,  paint colors and interior furnishings. The entire house is not "decorated" yet. They have two small children so they're taking their time and decorating in stages.

But I thought it would be fun to share where we are so far.

Living Room/Entry

I don't have any real "before" pictures but I do have where we started the design process... an empty room which is both a living room/entry for the home. This client loves lots of pattern and color. So this project was right up my alley!

As you can see this room will be an entry point and needs to have appropriate flow from the entry door to the stairs and to the rest of the home. It also needed to be bright, open and spacious.

We chose to use four swivel chairs instead of a sofa and two chairs so the room would not appear blocked off or have any weird dead spaces in the back. 

For additional seating we added two cubes under the console in the back of the room. 

With this configuration the room looks beautiful no matter how you enter.
