The Client Experience | The Patel Family

The Client Experience | The Patel Family

Today we are visiting with the Patel family.  Aari & Purav reached out to us to help them with their new home.  When they bought it, it was stuck in the 80s and needed a facelift to really reflect their style & needs.  The project started with a renovation---new kitchen layout, flooring throughout, closing up a niche in the wall, adding a dramatic feature to the fireplace, along with updating bathrooms & bedrooms.  We did the renovation part of the project through edesign. Once they got their design boards for the renovation, they gave it to their contractor who got to work.

Mud Room Spruce Up

 Sometimes I get in a creative momentum and just can stop myself! Our home's mudroom found itself in the path of my renovation tornado this time around. The SFD has had so many fun renovation and add-on projects lately that I thought I'd take on one for myself... but a much smaller job, of course. This small project of redoing the mudroom consisted of tearing down the old built-ins and creating my own, and obviously adding some good ol' shiplap! Take a look at the transformation below!

Home Office Tour

Our home office was probably one of the funnest rooms to remodel because part of it was a huge surprise for my husband. During the renovation we celebrated his 30th birthday & our 5th anniversary.  I knew I wanted this space to be totally for him. We got rid of the desk in the nook & put in a gun safe.  My husband is an avid hunter with a huge gun collection.  I thought it would be so cool to really show off his safe in the office.  We painted the entire room & planked the wall where the gun safe was installed with old barn wood that my contractor had.  A new light fixture, rug, furniture & of course, his deer to finish off this manly space. My contractor & I were able to keep the surprise under wraps until the Mr. & I had our date night & we just happened to swing by to see the progress on the house.  He was in love!

SFD Home Remodel | Part I | Tomball, TX

When we bought our house a little over two years ago; it was a dream come true.  Five acres for the kids to run around, a pond for fishing & a dream to redo our home just the way we wanted it.  Oh & the sweet neighbors---long story, but it just so happens that I moved to the country only to live to my aunt's friends from college best friend...did you catch all that?  Well it's like having family here & it's the best! Anyways, back to our story.  The house had fabulous bones, but it was dark...really dark & a bit dated.

Today I'd like to share with y'all the dining room, kitchen & breakfast nook.  First up, the dining room....paint, paint & more paint.  I wanted to lighten this place up & get some updated decor in here.

Next up, the breakfast nook--as you can see it was red...really red, as was the entire kitchen.  In this room we added wood beams to the ceiling to add a little rustic feel, as well as some paint, a new light fixture & our own furniture.  We also decided to continue the wood floors that are in the formal living & dining into the kitchen & breakfast nook.

And last on our Part 1 of the tour is our kitchen, the most drastic change to the house.  When we first looked at the house, I walked into the kitchen and immediately knew exactly what I wanted to do.  Now this kitchen, as is, is really pretty, just not our taste.  The red had to go, and so did the raised area on the island.  And I really really really wanted new windows, which my husband thought I had lost it.  I love the brick around the stove, but due to some issues we ended up having to take it down.  I'm over the moon excited about how it turned out.

Kadane Renovation | Montgomery, TX

Hey y'all! Today I'm so excited to share with y'all the Kadane home.  Last August I got a call from our former neighbors & sweet friends letting us know that they were moving.  They had found a diamond in the rough overlooking the lake & wanted my help getting this place all fixed up for them. I was beyond honored to help.  This was my first full remodel since doing my own home.  After seeing the before pictures she sent me I couldn't wait to get in there & get my hands dirty.
