We took this recent retiree’s home from dark & drab to light & fab – creating the oasis she always wanted. We painted her living room walls and woodwork a fresh light coat, leaving only the beams in their natural wood tone. We opened up the kitchen and dining room – removing the boxy built-in desk – then freshened up the cabinets with a simple coat of white paint and new hardware. Three types of outdated flooring were replaced with one woodgrain vinyl, creating a cohesive flow throughout. Our final touch was dressing the entire space in contemporary farmhouse style furniture and décor. This much-needed update – to a much-loved home – completely transformed the space, giving her the light, bright and airy retreat she longed for to enjoy her golden years.
