Not all projects start with an empty room. A home that feels dated but has good bones and few loved pieces just needs a home refresh. At the beginning of the project, we sit down with the client, and talk about goals and desired aesthetics to determine what elements in the home should stay and what should be replaced. Take a look at this home refresh we recently completed. Nearly every room in the home was updated in one way or another, but not a single room design started from an empty space.
When a complete overhaul would be wasteful and unnecessary, but you are ready to feel like your kitchen is modern and bright, its time for a refresh! Some kitchens just need a facelift after years of wear and tear.
This kitchen already has a good flow, nice cabinetry, and updated appliances, but the lighting was sparse, and the room itself felt dark. We added more lighting including island pendants to brighten up the room overall.
A new backsplash introduced color to an otherwise neutral space that we then reintroduced in the new paint color.
These simple changes were much less expensive than a whole new kitchen but make a huge difference in the room.
The Family Room Refresh
Like the kitchen in this home, this family room needed a facelift. The goal was to brighten up the room and make it more modern while still celebrating the traditional feel of the home’s architecture. We updated the recessed lighting, adding a rich wall color, and then introduced new pillows, a new sofa, a new rug, and new tables while keeping the original leather pieces. The new pillows on the leather pieces make them feel completely new in the refreshed space.
All of the art in this room was the client’s pieces curated through a lifetime of travel. We selected locations for these pieces to bring them to life in the home.
This family room has another little wing off the main space where the client has a comfy sofa and the TV. We also refreshed this space with a new sofa, and curated accessories – some new and some repurposed from the client’s home.
The Master Bedroom Refresh
The master bedroom refresh was minimal but made a HUGE impact. We took the four-poster bed and eliminated the posts making it feel much more modern and allowing the bedding to shine as the focal point. New bedding, lamps, and a bench at the foot of the bed make this feel like a whole new room.
The Bathroom Refresh
This bathroom “refresh” was a bit more construction than the rest of the home, but the only chance in the space was the shower. We transformed the small stall shower and tub to an expansive walk-in shower while keeping the vanity and other original components of the bathroom. This beautiful shower transforms this room and really makes it much more functional of a bathroom.
