New Generation New Design: Jericka and Matthew

Matthew loved visiting his grandparents’ house, so when he and his wife, Jericka, had the chance to purchase it, they were overjoyed. While it was big enough to grow into, the layout was choppy, and the design outdated.

We reimagined the main living areas and added a stunning game room to give Jericka and Matthew a forever home where they can start a family and continue their treasured traditions.

Design Highlights

Kitchen with green cabinets and stainless steel stove in jericka and matthew's new Forever Home

Modern and Organic

The kitchen was isolated and cut off from the rest of the house, so our first step was to take down the wall between it and the living room. The added exposure now helps show off their new sage green kitchen cabinets and polished quartz counters.

Shooting the Breeze

Because the original dining room was so far from the kitchen (and because Matthew loves to shoot pool), we decided to turn the space into a classy game room. As a treat, we also refurbished their heirloom pool table to ensure the entire space was polished and modern.

Home and Heritage

For the living room, we focused on getting rid of the dated items, such as the 80s-style sectional, while keeping and highlighting heritage pieces like Matthew’s grandma’s custom cabinet. We also restored the stone fireplace and added a wooden mantel to display family photos.
