Thanks to online real estate listings, we have some fantastic images of this Danville farmhouse built in 1941 before it was supersized for a new modern family.
The listing from 2015 shows rooms like this country canteen that was recently remodeled. But the cabinets were small, the tumbled stone back splash didn't fit the style of the house, and the smooth laminate flooring lacked character. Many of the updates were like this- just not quite.
With high school age boys and parents who love of entertaining, this house needed room for gatherings of all sized both inside and out.
The new owners started with big sweeping updates like removing the all of the front window treatments and installing wide plank hardwood floors.
And thanks to our all-time most popular paint color, 23 Swiss Coffee they created a clean white canvas for the walls, ceilings, trim, and cabinets to let in as much light as possible and give their home a spacious relaxing look.
When you paint everything white, you have to bring in warmth by adding a variety of textures, materials, and art to make sure the space is comfortable and cozy. This family did just that with vintage mirrors, velvet pillows, and colorful art and accessories they've collected over the years.
For the kitchen, pushing the back wall to the outer edge of the roof line allowed for a more family friendly great room with an over-sized island, roomy cabinets, farm style drawer pulls, and a casual furniture for lounging and visiting with friends and family.
Extending the brought in even more light and created easy flow for indoor and outdoor entertaining.
And the paneling in several rooms, though applied in a modern horizontal way, echoes the rustic details of the house as they found it.
Upstairs you'll find the least touched areas, charming guest rooms painted in Swiss Coffee to show off vintage fabrics and country style furnishings.
Yep, this is all Swiss Coffee AND all family friendly. Share your best home remodels and be sure to tag us @kellymoorepaints on Instagram so we can feature you too!
So here we are stepping lightly into 2021 looking to restore a sense of calm and get grounded again as we prepare for whatever this new year may bring.
