Actress, producer, and director Halle Berry showed her deep gratitude to her 5th grade teacher and 40-plus-year mentor, Yvonne. Halle said Yvonne was a guide and a bright light during some very difficult times in her youth and helped shape who she is today. With our help, Halle executed a stunning kitchen, dining room, and sitting room renovation for Yvonne’s 1920 Cleveland, Ohio, home.

Before & After
GATHER ‘ROUND THE TABLE
Even since Halle was a little girl, Yvonne’s kitchen has acted as a hub for family, friends, and students to gather around. So, to make her renewed “cookie talks” easier, we installed a peninsula with an attached wooden tabletop, so that her new prep space could double as an office space as well.
Years of kids running around had worn Yvonne’s old dining room carpet down to the bones. However, once we restored the original hardwood floor below, all it took was a fresh coat of paint and a chic dining set to breathe new life into the space.
Some of Yvonne’s most cherished possessions are the letters she’s received from former students. So, when we revamped the study, we made sure that the new built-in shelves not only included plenty of space to display pictures of loved ones but also custom drawers to store the letters in.
