The power of Paint! Bergen County interior designer

It's amazing what a little paint can do to change a room!  I love how light an airy this cozy den is and I love decorating the mantle with art and little treasures.

But would you believe that this is what the room looked like when we first saw it?

I loved the wood beams on the ceiling and the texture of the paneling but all of the wood and red brick really made the room feel dark and closed in.  So just painting really changes the feel of the space and modernizes the room

Don't be afraid when you are house hunting and see a room with wood paneling or a dated fireplace. I would love to help you transform your space into something that you love!

Bergen County NJ Dream Kitchen?

When I have shared photos of this kitchen on Instagram, there have been lots of comments calling it their "dream kitchen" and I have to agree that it really is!  BUT it certainly didn't look like this when we first walked into the house for the first time.

Here is the "after".  Scroll down for the "before" and how we did it!

Here is what the kitchen looked like when we came to the open house.

Not quite a dream kitchen right?  It's hard for most people to see this "before" photo and imagine what the "After" will look like. I'll admit that I didn't see it right away either. We came back to the house a second time to be sure and decided to go for it. We knew that we could bump out the back of the house because there was plenty of space in the backyard.  We decided to go out about 10 feet which clearly made a huge difference in the openness of the space.  When designing the kitchen, I knew I wanted a wall of windows overlooking the backyard. I love white kitchens but didn't want it ALL white either. So I chose a pale grey for the island base and chose black and natural wood as an accent colors. This really brought warmth to the space which appeals to buyers.  Do you currently have a kitchen stuck in the 1970's like the "before" photo? Are you a bergen county house flipper who is working on a new kitchen?  I'd love to be your interior designer to help select all of the finishes and paint colors. I also have great connections with a Bergen County kitchen cabinet maker who can make our ideas come to life in a very cost effective way.   I'd love to chat about your interior design needs!
