Light & Bright
10 years ago we were busy helping a customer in Plano with their new Town Home. They were lucky to have a great view of a creek from a large window in their kitchen, but it was the only window in the living area other than a couple of second-story skylights. Their design was more of the Old World look. The Kitchen cabinets were dark, the wood floors were dark and the paint was a golden color. The home was pretty… just dark.
A few months ago the new owner called us for a consultation. “What would you do to give this home a more transitional look” was her question. Our answer. “Paint and that includes the trim”. We also wanted her paint the kitchen cabinets and that included taking off an Old World Appliqué on the vent. Also, new paint on the Fireplace, change out the granite in the Kitchen, new lighter rug and change out the Old World lighting fixtures.
Wow, what a difference!! We had the trim painted Extra White and used a very light gray on the wall. I think this changed the look of the room the most. She had the cabinets painted the same Sherwin Williams Extra White. And we changed out the backsplash and countertops. Also many of the globes on the lighting fixtures and added a 72” contemporary ceiling fan.
Now for the finishing details. Those include hardware for the Kitchen cabinets. We are also adding a New Roman Shade for the Window and Door. We are using Vignette by Hunter Douglas. The fabric is the new Cascade Fabric in the soft gray fabric and we will use PowerView lift motorization. One reason Vignettes are so good in situations where the patio right on the other side is their clean construction. There are no rings and cords showing to the outside like many Roman Shades.
We will also be adding a rug from Loloi Rugs. It is a contemporary design using grays, whites, and blues.
We were all pleased with the finished look. Let us know what you think. If you are looking to update your home, gives us a call. We would love to help you get a new light and bright design for your home.
