Project Tall Pines | A Family of Four from Out-of-State

I've got a new project update for you today! We've been working with some great clients who recently moved from out of state. Their new place is quite a bit larger than their last home, and with their kids now in the pre-teen/teen stage, they were excited to create what they called, "a grown up house with grown up furniture".

For stage one of the project, we're helping out with all three bedrooms (always the #1 priority after a move, since this is where everyone can escape and have their own space), and the living room and kitchen breakfast area.

We also decided to have the interior of the house painted prior to move in, since painting a vacant house is so much easier than one full of furniture. The whole house was very warm initially, with beige walls, orange walls, brown walls, and lots of dark wood trim. We decided to balance out the warm wood trim with a nice neutral, warm white—Sherwin Williams Greek Villa. This brightened up the entire home, and created a lovely neutral base for us to build upon.

We're also updating the carpet throughout the house—always a great idea when you're moving in—to a

Living Room and Kitchen

First up, I'll show you a glimpse at our plan for the living room and kitchen. Here's a quick shot of the living room from the listing photos:

Our plan is to remove the trim and moulding from above the mantel and replace it with drywall in order to make room for a larger Frame TV. The walls have been painted SW Greek Villa, and the carpet will be slightly lighter, and with more color variation. You can see the carpet swatch in the style boards below.
