Bob and Reiki-master Denise had made many happy memories in their suburban home, and they had no intention of ever leaving. The home had a great layout, a large yard with a beautiful garden, and a cherry tree. But the house’s dated oak finishes, cluttered areas, and choppy layout were weighing on the couple. They needed help revamping their home to make it a space with positive energy and flow. We redesigned the front entry, living room, dining room, and kitchen to create a balanced, calming environment in which Bob and Denise can continue to make happy memories.

Before & After
MAKING AN ENTRANCE
Denise and Bob’s entrance had amazing height, but was held back by its carpeted, orange-oak staircase. We replaced that dated look with black spindles and wooden treads; plus, we also switched out the lighting fixture so that dead bugs are less likely to get caught in it and dampen the entrance’s bright, refreshing energy.
GOING WITH THE FLOW
Despite having a good amount of space, an awkward island shape and unintuitive appliance layout made the kitchen a, “zone of chaos,” according to Bob. By removing the dividing wall between the kitchen and dining room, we were able to install a more suitable island and turn a previously cluttered corner into a sunny breakfast nook.
Denise’ love of bling and souvenirs was sometimes at odds with Bob’s preference for a Spartan, uncluttered space. By refurbished their fireplace with Venetian plaster and adding built-in shelves, we were able to include both their tastes in the living room. Best of all, we were able to include pictures of Denise’ parents and Bob’s art into the décor as well.
