Renovating a home is often full of surprises. But perhaps the most surprising thing for this homeowner was that once she started, she didn’t want to stop.
Under the skillful guidance of designer Danielle Nicholson (Danielle Nicholson Design) the 2,800 square foot home was brought out of the 90s and into 2016.
A new kitchen by Wayne’s Custom Woodcraft was the starting point and Nicholson redesigned it to be clean, fresh and modern. She replaced the dated cupboards with shaker-style cabinetry and linear nickel-toned hardware. A grey, glass subway tile backsplash and a grey-flecked, granite-topped kitchen island keep the look contemporary and timeless.
The installation of the new grey hardwood flooring (Roma Tile) was the real game changer. The homeowner loved the look of the new floor so much she decided to carry it through the entire main level.
In terms of décor, Nicholson spent a lot of time sourcing images that are meaningful for the homeowners – architectural prints, family photographs, mementos, mirrors. Furnishings were chosen to give it a clean, modern feel.
Upstairs, converted from an extra bedroom, the hang-out room uses built-ins, a fireplace and custom coffee table that double as extra seating. Nicholson also transformed the master bedroom with bedding from Beddazzle Bedroom & Bathroom Studio and sleek window coverings.
The success of the ongoing project has brought the homeowner a deep satisfaction. She is already planning to work with Nicholson on her next renovation project.
