It’s been nearly three years since we moved in to this house and during that time, I have painted this house from top to bottom. When we bought the house, it was covered in dark brown paint and mustard golds. It had to go!
Our house has great windows and gets a ton of natural light and I wanted to cash in on that so I went with light toned neutrals. I tend to change my mind a lot. Therefore, I knew to stay away from color . If I did go that route, I knew I would be repainting in six months.
I had the pleasure of working with a couple in Dartmouth towards the end of summer. What began as a kitchen makeover soon morphed into a complete revamp of their main living area. The couple had already chosen some modern furnishings by Structube, they had painted an accent wall a lovely shade of charcoal and throughout the space there were hits of tangerine and lime.

Paint once again to the rescue. This time we painted the cabinets out Cloud White by Benjamin Moore and once again, we painted the cabinet boxes but, had the doors and drawers fronts professionally sprayed. We also clad the peninsula in headboard to give it some architectural interest and we removed the corbels as they were not functional and only caused many a bruise for those sitting at the peninsula.
The pendants over the peninsula are newly installed and the bar stools were reupholstered. This makeover happened in stages. Continue reading
This bathroom was tired and dated. A textured sponge treatment on the walls, dolphin cutouts as a border plus a dark dated oak vanity. The only thing this bath had going for it was the skylight. I love a bath with natural light.
In this space, the only thing that stayed was the tub and vanity.
Earlier this spring, I completed a full kitchen makeover keeping their existing cabinets and appliances. We did install new flooring, replaced the old fluorescent ceiling fixture along with installing new under cabinet lighting, new sink, faucet and water filtration system, new cabinet hardware, new countertops and painting of existing cabinets.
