I had the pleasure of helping a really nice couple, who recently relocated from Chicago, color their new home. The house- an older, classically styled home with real square rooms (remember those?), fantastic moldings and trim, wood floors, etc…. You walk in and it just feels good- the abundance of warm, natural light certainly helps.
They are doing an overhaul (and a darn good one)- wood floors refinished in an espresso stain, 2 bathroom remodels, new fixtures, every room and all trim painted, etc… The best part? Well, there are many… but one that strikes me is the overall consistency in design that the remodel has brought to the home.
And the colors? They turned out well! We went with gentle, earthy, soothing, grayed-down tones by Benjamin Moore. We are really excited about the way the trim color turned out- we got it on the first try, and you know the whites? (they are tricky). A lucky break this time. We were going for a soft, slightly aged looking white (here it is)-
Congratulations to the P’s on their beautiful new pad.
