You’ve probably heard people talk about the “elephant in the room”. You know…that one thing that everyone is acutely aware of but nobody wants to talk about.  Well, in this line of work, you run into a heck of a lot of elephants!

We recently stumbled across an “elephant” while helping clients renovate their new lake house near Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.  During the consultation prior to closing, we toured the immaculately kept home for ideas to customize it to the new owner’s taste and style. It quickly became clear that certain changes were immediately necessary while others could happen down the road.

In order to suit the new owners’ taste and style, we planned to phase out the more “rural” creams, tans, peaches and greens and phase in a more desired “urban” palette of warm grays, blacks and whites. The elephant in the room, of course, was the stone fireplace complete with its peach and salmon accents, oak mantle and brass surround.



To compliment our new wall color (BM 1541 London Fog), we decided to have the stone on the fireplace primed and painted with BM 1536 Northern Cliffs. The dated, polished brass fireplace surround was painted with heat-resistant black Rustoleum™ and the oak mantel painted black to match. Finally, a new stacked-stone mosaic tile was applied right over the existing glass mosaic using SimpleMat™ tile setting mat to complete the new look.



How do you eat an elephant?  One bite at a time!  And while there’s still a lot of work to be done, the elephant in this room has all but disappeared.  What would have been a real eyesore in the newly decorated space has been given a facelift with a little paint and tile and will blend nicely with the new owner’s furniture, art and accessories (to follow).

So what are you waiting for?  Don’t ignore the elephants in your own space any longer!!!  And if you need help from the “big guns”, give us a call!  815-245-2433!
