The Heritage Cottage was originally lovingly named the "Green Gem" as every room in the home was painted a bright green color. But this heritage home had beautiful bones and character under the bright paint that wanted to shine again. With this, we decided to brighten the home by adding soft white tones back onto the walls and trim while still keeping the character of rich green in the kitchen cabinets, board, and batten walls. The floors were sanded down and brought back to their original glory. In the kitchen, we took out a tiny, off-center window and added a new beautiful set of french doors allowing the light to flood in leading out to the new deck. We added a butcher block countertop to the island. The fireplace was built more sustainably by extending out the top portion and wrapping it with board and batten treatment. When my client and I talk about the style of their home we wanted to stay true to their eclectic style. We added warm rich tones and a mix of many styles that brought together the feel they always wanted. The home now has its own story again, it shines, it's warm and cozy, and has a lot of character.
