One of our all time favorite houses, Morrison wasn't the ugliest or the most dilapidated of the bunch...it was simply out-dated. Although we spent a good amount of time time fixing the bad renos it had endured over the years, the house was an amazing project in need of some smart design decisions to bring it back to life. From the beginning, we spent a large amount of time researching Victorian homes since there were a lot of layout changes that needed to be made. One obvious change that immediately went into effect was opening the wall underneath the stairway...true to an original Victorian layout. From there, we had to relocate the kitchen back to it's original spot which had been moved elsewhere sometime in the past. However, one of the most simple, but dramatic transformations this house endured was giving that staircase a new coat of paint. We chose a charcoal color to modernize the look of the stairs, painting them all one color...something we have been known to do a time or two! The before/afters are simply stunning and proof that a simple coat of paint can completely change a space.
There you have it! A handful of our most dramatic transformations over the years. Since there is a whole lot more where that came from, we decided to make this a multiple part series. Transformations...they are kinda our thing! More to come!
