Once upon a time, there was a couple of snowbirds who dreamt of coming back to a remodeled home that looked like it could be in the "Artisan Home" tour. We were lucky enough to be the fairy godmothers of this tale, and worked alongside an awesome team to make dreams a reality!
What happened in those five months that they were away? Paint, paint, and more paint. Almost every inch of this house had been touched with paint. The beautiful hardwood floors were refinished and stained, the carpet was replaced, the light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, tile, and the list goes on! The biggest transformation of all was the primary suite bathroom. See the transformation below!
This primary bathroom is a stunner! We reconfigured the layout completely. The toilet was moved, the vanities were moved, the shower was moved (and became much larger), and the tub would cease to exist in the space after the remodeling was done. The homeowners said they never used the tub and would rather have a grand shower (I don't blame them), so we did just that and gave them the shower of their dreams! Check out the before and after photos.
The double vanities combined in the new layout, as there were two singular vanities in the previous layout. We moved the toilet and tucked it away behind the shower knee wall to allow for more storage and a grand double vanity. Since the tub was removed from the equation, we were able to get a very large shower with double showerheads, a shower wand, two niches, and a bench area. We also added a "locker" area for our clients to store towels, robes, and another small seating area to get ready for the day.
The soft, neutral palette of this bathroom has us in love. We mixed metals and warm and cool with natural oak, brushed nickel fixtures, gold hardware, brass light fixtures, a soft gray and white checkered tile floor, warm marble hex for the shower floor and niches, and a classic, artisan white subway tile for the shower walls.
Kitchen & Dining
The kitchen and dining room got a major upgrade with fresh paint, new hardware, new backsplash tile, refinished and stained floors, and some new light fixtures. We kept the existing furniture, but added new rugs for warmth, and new accessories throughout to elevate the spaces.
The green kitchen island plays nicely with the quartz countertops that contain gold and green speckles. The warmth of the floor pairs nicely with the new paint job as well.
Love how crisp and bright the kitchen feels now, with lots of natural light and a bright backsplash.
In addition to new paint and fresh floors, we also switched out all of the cabinet hardware and plumbing fixtures in the kitchen to give some contrast and an updated feel.
The living room and part of the dining room built-ins breath new life with their SW Urbane Bronze paint color. Despite the dark colors and contrast, we wanted the living room to feel warm and inviting. We added a textural grasscloth wallpaper above the fireplace, brightened up the fireplace tile surround, and lightened up the carpet with a cozy wool carpet. New accessories and artwork made this built-in area shine.
This cute bathroom had a facelift. We removed the existing wallpaper, and replaced it with this beautiful weeping pine wallpaper by F Schumacher Co. The light fixture, cabinet hardware, mirror, and plumbing fixtures were all replaced as well. The vanity was painted BM Revere Pewter, and the Cambria Skara Brae countertop sings with the fun wallpaper.
Thank you for touring our #Knappervalley project! You may be wondering how we got the project name. It is in part due to our client's last name, and also the vibe we were going for... like Napa Valley. We wanted this home to feel sophisticated, classy, but still very warm and inviting. It is also an amazing home for entertaining, and the homeowners may be wine lovers, so the name was fitting. We absolutely love how this project turned out, and more importantly, love that the homeowners are so happy with the finished product. Stay tuned for more project reveals!
