Home Renovation – Fireplace

Fireplace Make Over

When my clients first brought me on a tour through the new home they purchased we all agreed on many items on the renovation To-Do List.  I was a little blown away that they were fine with the existing fireplace while I had a strong opinion to the contrary from the moment I saw the original fireplace.

As is the case with home renovations, the after photo looks so amazing it is hard to imagine the room ever looking any other way.  Truth is it takes a good long time to get to the finished product.

Fireplace Make Over – Simple & White is Oh So Right

Simple is the most difficult design decision to go with.  I think we all have a constant battle within to always want to do more, add that one more thing that will finally complete the look.

Before & After

One of my favorite things about working as an interior design is getting to see and share the transformation of a home after a renovation.  The photo above is the After of a project I did a short time ago.  Bold and colorful for sure, but I don’t think you can really appreciate the After until you see the Before.  My clients wanted this room to be a, just about everything room.  It needed to function as an Office, Dining Room and a TV room.  That is no doubt a tall order for a small(ish) room.  I managed to get it all in and function as well as look amazing!
