Novella and Terry’s five-bedroom, five-bathroom home had a surplus of open spaces, unique architecture—and wasted potential. We added some much-needed curb (and living room) appeal, reconfigured the kitchen layout to make it feel even bigger, and turned the upstairs bonus room into a place worth spending time in. With no major structural issues in sight, we were able to dedicate a good chunk of the budget to custom design features throughout.

Before & After


On the exterior, we replaced the grungy front door and spruced up the landscaping to create a truly standout first impression. And to keep potential buyers intrigued upon entering, we added contrast to the staircase with a coat of dark paint on the banister—it’s a simple yet sophisticated touch.


As you linger in the beautiful new entryway, the adjacent living room just past it will undoubtedly grab your attention. Technically, this space’s focal feature is a brand-new fireplace that draws the eye up, up, up to the soaring ceiling. But the three-tier chandelier we installed overhead is such a showstopper, too, that we set up a mirror on the mantel so it can be admired from every angle.


What started out as bland room with exercise equipment and questionable carpeting is now the perfect entertaining area. We added style in the form of new flooring, fresh paint, a media center, and a fully functional bar that stretches the length of the back wall. And while we love a good bar cart for displaying boozy accoutrement, we opted for floating shelves here as the finishing touches. You know we’re all about those shelfies!
