Before & After: West Chester Sophisticated Reno

My client came back from her trip inspired to redecorate her home. She wanted to change the flooring and freshen up the paint, but the family room needed a makeover as well and she wished the bedroom would feel more like a relaxing retreat. She entertains often so an open, inviting space with lots of seating were a must.

We also updated the kitchen with new quartz countertops and added some bling with a glass subway tile backsplash.
The breakfast area was bright and cheerful but the slipcovers on the chairs didn’t relate to anything else in her home. We kept it bright and cheerful with these new slipcovers
In the bedroom, we kept the drapes and her pine dresser and armoire which she loved for storage. but the knots of the pine not so much and we had them painted. The dresser was updated with gold framed mirrors  with geometric overlay of overlapping circles.

Before & After: Bright and Cheerful Downingtown Home Redesign

My clients bought their new home a few years back. They loved the neighborhood and the architectural style of the house, but the finishes they inherited from the previous owners not so much. Sounds familiar, right?


The previous owners style was very different than my clients: muted, earthy colors and finishes, deep rooted in the brown – tuscan trend. My clients are all about bright, fresh and cheerful spaces.

After struggling for three years with the direction she wanted her new home to go they hired me to redesign their kitchen and the adjoining family room. The request was for the design to be bright and cheerful. The only thing I had to keep was their blue sofa. Everything else was up for a change.

Starting from the blue sofa with contrasting green welt the blue and green color palette was decided for the family room.

The way the furniture was arranged previously didnt work for them so we changed the layout. And their brick fireplace got a quick make over with paint.

The kitchen felt dark and uninviting.
We replaced the travertine backsplash with a classic hex glass tile and had the kitchen cabinets repainted in a warm white.
We kept the dining set but freshened up the breakfast area by painting the dining chairs in a red orange color and installing custom window treatments for a tailored look.

Next up are the formal living and dining room. Can’t wait to work with my clients again to transform those areas into fun and bright rooms that they and their family will enjoy for a long time.
