I wanted to downsize and found this charming home that needed some updating and re-configuring. I started with kitchen, an upstairs bath, and a first floor laundry solution in an oddly configured bedroom/office. The kitchen is playful and fun. We opened it up to the dining room with a large eat-in counter, then brought in splashes of color including a red fan, cabinet door and drawer fronts in bold colors, a dropped light box. The bath project upstairs created an exciting walk in shower, curved walls, cool tile, and smart storage. Along the way, we made some strategic changes that will make the next project, renovating the first-floor bath, much easier!
