I love a before and after blog post.
I was hired to redo all of the main areas in this 7000+ square foot home, section by section.
And we just finished the first section! Not too many words to say on this one. Just photos…
I am going to touch a little on the process… With a room shaped this way, I had to start with a floor plan.
Damn. Lied again.
We started with what they were keeping. The fireplace. They told me a story about this faux finisher that spent hours meticulously painting the fireplace, and they did not have the heart to change it. You guys know about me and my fireplaces. I wanted to do a modern wood treatment with a series of 2 x 8 inch slats going in differing directions (horizontal, diagonal, etc.) But the story touched my heart and made me giggle a little too, so we kept it as is.
Here are the space plans I came up with:
My real answer is, I always let the end user determine the focal point. They hardly ever used the fireplace, but used the hell out of the TV. Also, with this much space I did not want to plop the TV over the fireplace. That would have been tragic. So, I came up with seating zones.
After I sent all three plans, the homeowners let me know they liked #3 the best.
Number three it was!
Here are the befores and afters.
And then this happened…
So… what do you think? Before I ask everybody what their opinions are, I have to tell you that my photographer Marcel Page shot the hell out of this thing. He likes it when I mention him, so Marcel there you go. 🙂
Have an Amazing Day All!
