It always great to put the icing on the cake. And that’s exactly what we did recently for a great couple in Huntley.
Having lived in their suburban Chicago home longer than they originally thought and deciding to stay put for a while longer, they decided it was time to update and upgrade a few things because it’s never too nice.
The project started with a major kitchen remodel but, like many renovations, found its way into the adjoining spaces. After completing a beautiful, new kitchen, the powder room received some love including a new glass mosaic tile wall. And new bamboo floors now shine throughout the entire first floor.
Our contribution began when we helped the couple create a new first floor color palette that fused the wife’s love of grays with the husband’s preference for tans & browns. A more vibrant green replaced an earthy sage in the living room. The powder room was adorned with a deep eggplant. While the painting and construction were finished, we began the process of sourcing all the new goodies needed to fill the new canvas. When everything was ready, we returned to their hard work with the finishing touches just in time for a family Easter gathering.
The family room furniture was replaced with a new brown leather sectional from West Elm, tables from Dania, art and accessories from HomeGoods, and a beautiful area rug from Home Decorators Collection.
The Living Room sofa and coffee table were reused and positioned to draw attention to the fireplace. Two new occasional chairs in a bold geometric print flank and frame the new focal point. A new end and console table along with art, lamps, area rug and accessories finished the space. New 95″ window panels were added in every room to add warmth and softness.
While both owners claimed that the end results were “too nice for us”, I couldn’t disagree more. Everyone deserves a beautiful home. Helping the two of them have the “grown up” space they wanted was the icing for all their hard work!
