A chaotic, messy master bedroom gets a major transformation! What was once dirty white carpet, disheveled bed, mix and match furniture and terrible closets is turned into a luxury indoor/outdoor bedroom retreat complete with wood grain tile that runs inside and out, modern bamboo closet system with a television on a lift, an outdoor seating area with a view and modern custom storage columns. Plus, a fabric platform bed is set against custom padded fabric wall panels to create the ultimate master bedroom retreat!
A disjointed great room is unified with a fireplace overhaul, Moroccan-inspired design, and a flowing floor plan. The living room and dining room once felt split by a hulking stone fireplace, but its ultramodern tile facelift now anchors the two spaces. Add to that textured wall treatments in vibrant colors, a 'floating' sofa, a modern canopy, mood lighting and a cleaner visual line from front door to backyard, and this becomes one stunning Moroccan fireplace lounge!
A cold and dark paneled family room is transformed and updated with a new ceiling, new floor, and bright colors. Sheldon and Jolene are brand new homeowners. Their 1959 house close to the beach hasn't had any updates. Their family room off the kitchen is straight out of the 70s and doesn't inspire them to entertain. The ceiling is lifted to expose an A frame roof with beams, a maple floor in a herringbone pattern replaces old linoleum, and vibrant, patterned wallpaper, along with whites, and orange and blue accents add a light, beachy look.
A mix and match recording studio in the basement is completely transformed into a high-end professional studio. What was once a basement of old equipment and ugly carpet gets revamped with live edge pine wall slats, warm cork wall paneling and a one of a kind three dimensional wall art piece. Plus, a glowing pop of color takes center stage in this space as a column is lit with red rope light and faced with frosted paneling.
A dark underused garage gets transformed into a mid century modern lounge. The once ugly garage door is replaced by a modern glass garage door that opens up into a new room where these homeowners can entertain, work and relax. Colorful carpet tiles add pops of color over a cold garage floor and a custom Murphy bed creates a space for guests to stay. Plus, the garage now opens up into an inviting outdoor seating area, complete with horizontal slat seating and wall panels and cool steel shade structure.
An unfinished room in an Oakland hills home was just being used for storage. Now it's a master bedroom suite and art loft. With no windows or light before, their new space has walls, windows, bright colored paint like citrine, turquoise, and white, storage benches and baskets, new flooring, custom photo art, and a cut-out into the next room, now changed into an art loft to store craft supplies. Natural, cozy elements that bring the outside in, transform the space into a bright, useable, Chic Urban Nest that family and friends can enjoy.
A blank, divided room is opened up and given new life with the addition of faux beams, a custom barn door, limestone fireplace tiles, hardwood floors, and a painted television frame. Neely lives with her Mom in a one level house that lacked character, color, and texture. A random cut-out wall divided the family room into two unusable spaces. By knocking down the wall, adding French doors, and using wood elements like a poplar door, sandblasted beams, a Douglas fir coffee table and combining those with colors and textures, one great room with a rustic feel was created for comfortable and elegant living and dining.
