After 7 great but grueling years in New York, this little family of three decided to pack things up and make a fresh start in a more laid back locale. We covered their efficient 3-month makeover back in February and now, with another 3 months logged, we’re thrilled to show you more of their lovely space as they continue to settle in and make their new, old house a home...
Our initial impression of the Deaners' makeover was one of awe considering how much they were able to accomplish with so little and in such a short time! Most of their improvements have been simple paint, wallpaper and material upgrades — no major demo involved. We love seeing folks content to live lightly in older homes, using what exists whenever possible and taking their time to live in and understand the space. We've found that in these situations, the home and homeowners develop a natural dialogue that ultimately creates a true, unique aesthetic. We love color but something about the single wall paint used throughout the house, in conjunction with the old wood floors, creates a wonderfully cohesive space, perfect for showcasing this couple's amazing art collection and eclectic taste in furniture. Really lovely job, guys!
