Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace Exterior Color

 

I am so happy to have interior designer Nicole, of Eye for Pretty, guest posting today to share all of the details of how she transformed a fixer upper – with tons of potential – into her dream home. Here, she shares all of the details on the renovation and the interior design. I think you guys will love this dreamy fixer upper as much as I do! This home is magazine-worthy!!! 🙂

 

Hi everyone! I’m Nicole from @eyeforpretty and I’m so excited to be featured on HomeBunch! HomeBunch has always been my go-to site for home design inspiration and beautiful photographs. My #laquestaremodel was featured awhile back and it has always been a dream of mine to share our own home on here as well. Here is a little bit about me, my family and how our dream house came to be…

My husband and I have bought and sold several homes before landing on our current fixer upper. Our first house was a cute 1500 sq. foot California bungalow that we closed on on our wedding day, our second home was a perfectly beautiful but already finished house that we knew wouldn’t be our forever home and this house well, this house has a bigger story. It’s always been a dream of mine to either build or completely remodel a home start to finish. When a friend of mine texted that her neighbor had posted she was looking for moving boxes, I quickly googled the address and the house. I first noticed that it was an awful looking house with a FRONT deck straight out of the 70’s and then noticed that it was on the end of a court, in the best neighborhood and best location our little town had to offer. The next day I casually knocked on the door of the house and asked the owner if she would be interested in showing it to a sweet little family off market. To make a long story short, she did and my husband reluctantly agreed to hop on board with me and make this dated fixer upper into our dream home.

We lived in the house a few months before we got started on the remodel. This really helped us figure out what worked for us and what we’d like to change. We hired a great architect and brought on DKM Builders to complete the job. Dan and his guys kept the project running smooth and on time. I was very clear about what we wanted the home to feel like. After all, home is a feeling you get when you are there right? Beautiful, comfortable, organic, natural, warm… all of these things we wanted our home to be. And yes, even though our home is mostly white it still is warm! To be involved in every decision and to have designed every aspect has been gratifying and rewarding beyond words. It’s helped me grow as a designer and I honestly breathe a huge sigh of relief every time I step in the door. Our home is a joy to be in and a true reflection of who we are as a family. We look forward to making many memories here in the future!

What a transformation, huh?!

White board & batten siding with the contrasting black crossed railings, have completely transformed the look of this house with front deck. The home now has a California-farmhouse look that is appealing and very current.

Hardwood Floor

After countless hours searching, I finally decided on Hallmark floors. The collection is Alta Vista and the color is Laguna. One of my favorite designers @studiomcgee used them in their office and that sealed the deal for me. They are the perfect beachy white oak. I think the trend is going back towards dark floors but I seriously could not love our floors more. They keep the house bright and fresh and rarely look dirty. They are an oiled floor that uses Hallmarks special NuOil so it’s something to consider before purchasing.

Kitchen

I spent a lot of time designing our kitchen. I knew it would be the space we would be in most often and wanted to make sure it functioned well for our family and all of the guests we wanted to have over. In order to make room for our large island (it’s 4ft by 10ft) we pushed the wall that has the range on it back two feet and opened up the wall leading into the dining room. We used to have only one little doorway from the kitchen to the dining room and by opening that all up, it allowed us to see from one side of the house to the other. Besides the skylight, it’s probably my favorite thing we did in the remodel.

Skylight

Kitchen skylight New ideas for Kitchen skylight Kitchen skylight Kitchen skylight

Speaking of the skylight, it really took me some time to get on board with that because in my mind I was thinking the bubble skylights from the 80’s . My architect said it would bring in more natural light to the kitchen and I’m so glad we listened to him. I then added the beams running across it for a cool architectural detail. We originally planned to hang three pendants from them but once all our other fixtures were up we decided to leave them bare for now. They are wired for them so down the road you may see some pendants in the kitchen. So so glad we added the skylight because the natural light in my kitchen is gorgeous.

Fridge (hidden) is Thermador.

Q&A

Kitchen Runner

There are a few questions I get asked about most often on Instagram and they are; what floors are those, what countertops do you have, who makes your front doors and windows and what paint color is in your house? It’s funny because these are the things I probably agonized over most so I’m happy to see that people love them!

Microwave is Sharp.

Kitchen Hardware is by Alno in polished nickel.

Range

French Range

Another focal point in the kitchen is our beautiful La Cornue range. My architect drew a 42″ range in my plans and all our cabinets were based off of that. Little did I know a 42″ range was really hard to find so I lucked out and was able to get this dreamboat (the model is a CornuFe in stainless steel.) To be honest I never liked to cook but having this stove has changed my mind! 🙂
