We recently took on one of our biggest home design projects to date, and we wanted to give you guys a glimpse into the beginning stages of the project. It's always been a goal of ours to be able to take on full-scale home renovation projects like this one, and it's been something that we've been working towards for a while now. This particular project is just a few minutes from our own home in the Greenwood neighborhood of East Nashville, and it involves a pretty but admittedly kinda crumbly craftsman bungalow with tons of charm to work with.
Our in-house interior designer Leah is taking the reins in a big way on this one, working with the homeowners to reimagine the entire home and make the floorplan more open and modern (while still maintaining the original charm — you know us). We're also adding a bathroom and expanding on the kitchen, adding some functional space without actually adding an addition to the home itself.
The homeowners are going to be the general contractors on this project, but we’re helping with the big stuff, including the custom trim, build-outs, and demo. In the next phase, Leah is helping the homeowners to design a new, opened-up kitchen to make it an open concept first floor, as well as adding custom built-ins and vanities (with sinks!) in the bedrooms. We'll also be renovating both of the existing bathrooms to make them more modern, functional, and a little less dusty.
On the outside, we'll be cleaning her up and doing some general maintenance and TLC. The home will get a fresh coat of paint, some new landscaping and if we have any say in it, a ton of plants lining the perimeter of that killer front porch.
