The kitchen alone is jaw-dropping. Cabinets were removed and shiplap added to ceiling along with new range and counters that look like marble but perform like near steel!(I will share some sources in time) This home proves you can add charm to life in suburbia. Becki Griffin of Curious Details helped me capture photos of this amazing transformation from dated cookie cutter to fresh and charming home.
These were the AFTER photos of the kitchen/dining/breakfast area . . . Complete with LG Haus Quartz countertops and Visual comfort lighting via True Blue Home. That one big Darlana lantern is perfecto! I love the Darlana because it has no glass to keep clean and it also comes in lots of sizes and brass!
The light above the dining table is a bargain from Horchow and mixes just fine with the higher end lighting in the kitchen proper. Kitchen lighting (the lantern is the darlana and the sconce is the boston library) is by Visual Comfort via True Blue Home.
Speaking of light, adding a window to this space REALLY transformed it and let in the very best light, natural! Below you can see some of the before and during photos.
The Master bath is also one of my faves in this house…the tile is NOT marble..there is no real marble in this bath!
Mama said “with all of my kids I have to be able to use bleach!” So we used the marmot tile from Arizona tile and its magic along with more LG Haus on the counters and scads of white Daltile subway and tile picture railing..and an amazing Victoria + Albert tub!
What is so special is about the house is the children and family and sweet heart of hospitality of the family…since we shot these photos, they have added another babe to the pack! Congratulations Clarke family..You are tops!
The contractor Jesus Melgar Contracting did an amazing job on this project as did Heather Chavez of Traditions Windows who did the blinds and drapes. (she can do ANYTHING with windows, cannot say enough good things about Traditions Windows!)
Thank you again to Becki Griffin for helping capture my work and the beautiful families and homes in my life!
More next week about the upcoming POP UP SHOP in my Studio!
