About Project

With new Sherwin Williams (SW) Sleepy Hollow paint, this 1919 house has become a stunning blue beauty. A bright coat of SW Lemon Twist on the new Thermatru front door provides an additional pop of color, and the SW Extra White trim pops among the blue. New front steps complete the look and welcome guests into the beautiful home.

With new SW Rhinestone paint and LW Honey Mango hickory engineered hardwood flooring, the living room is the perfect backdrop for the updated fireplace centerpiece. The hearth features Starline Aqua Hexagon tiles, and the built-ins were removed, opening up the space into the dining room. 

Previously, the main level did not have a bathroom. Hidden behind a pocket door, this small but mighty room stands out from the rest of the main level with SW Iron Ore paint, a custom-built vanity, and Ripple Rose glazed tile backsplash. Champagne Bronze Delta fixtures, Precision Stone quartz countertops, and a Bellevue wall sconce tie the space together.

The LW Honey Mango hickory floors continue throughout the kitchen and custom Yorktowne soft-close maple cabinets line walls of the kitchen and dining room with contrasting finishes. Precision Stone quartz countertops and American Olean Urban Canvas Gloss Ice White subway tiles complement the bright upper cabinets. Brushed nickel pulls, under-cabinet lighting, all new appliances, and Matteo Lighting fixtures complete the room.

The hall bathroom upstairs was remodeled as well: Fabila Deco Cube hex tile, a new custom carriage black maple Yorktowne cabinets, a Kichler 3-light vanity light, a Kohler medicine cabinet, and matching the Kohler fixtures. Precision Stone quartz countertops match those used on the main level, and a stacked washer and dryer make it functional.

The primary bedroom was transformed into a primary suite! Influence 12x24 iron tiles line the bathroom floor and matching tile fills the shower niche. The shower walls feature an Interceramic sage ripple tile and black Delta fixtures. Black Livex vanity lights pop on the walls, and a double sink with custom Yorktowne maple cabinets with a frappe finish, chrome pulls, and Precision Stone quartz countertops give the homeowners the additional room they were looking for.
