We are beyond excited to share our latest before + after project that was just recently published in Southern Living's most inspiring makeovers!  Say hello to our amazing clients Susan and Jeff Johnson.  When we first met the Johnson's, post renovation, they were looking to bring their home's interior up to speed and make it livable for their young and vibrant family.

The Breakfast Area:

Prior to the renovation, the breakfast nook was the family room.  We brightened up the space by adding a fresh coat of white paint, replaced the previous mantel with a fun graphic mirror and to give an extra added punch, we added a graphic chevron rug from Rugs USA and roman shades with Susan's favorite fabric.  This space is now used for craft projects and other various family activities.

The Family Room:

Previously, there was a small bedroom adjacent to the family room.  Susan and her architect combined the breakfast area and small bedroom, making the den large enough to provide lots of space for their family and friends.  This family is full of personality and we wanted their interior to match, to accomplish this, we added a combination of patterns and a gallery art wall featuring the children's artwork plus fun accessories like these poufs from West Elm.  

The Kitchen:

Susan wanted their kitchen to be bright and sunny, working alongside her architect, they removed the wall to the adjacent family room.  Then she added custom glass front white cabinets and was able to take advantage of the natural light.  The large island gives the family plenty of room to cook, entertain and of course, do homework!  We then added cheery pops of color via the stools, rug and accessories.

We had such a blast working with the Johnson's, they're the best!  If you have a before + after project you need our help on, please contact us and send photos of your space.  We'll be happy to help you tackle your next project with any architectural services, space planning, and interior design.
