I am so excited to share another remodel with you all! I was able to walk alongside the Driscoll’s when they sold their gorgeous home on Fondulac Drive, and as they bought this lovely home on Royal Vista. It was a pleasure to see their vision and dreams for their new home come to fruition, and to be a part of their process. The Driscoll’s are so easy to love, and I had a blast helping them “unlock new doors.”
Their home on Fondulac was a lovely English cottage and they took impeccable care of it for many years. They brought most of their furniture with them to the new house on Royal Vista Drive. Initially, it was a challenge for Gina to envision her English cottage furniture in the new space, but she soon got the hang of it – it looks amazing! The furniture looks perfectly natural in the new space! I love when my clients make their home a reflection of their own personal style – it’s a huge reason I love to check in with a client a few months after they purchase a new home!
Soon after moving in, the Driscoll’s set to work repainting all the walls with “Availability Gray” and the trim with “White Time.” Just this paint job alone made the home look fresh and cheery! Gina also hung up her paintings from a family friend who is also a retired art teacher, once again making the house feel more like home. In the front of the house, the two converted the living room into a lovely dining room and finished it off with a new oriental rug that was the perfect touch. The dining room has a slightly lower floor than the main level, and the Driscoll’s tore out the two steps to make it just one step, which works great and is very aesthetically pleasing. In the bathroom, the Driscoll’s added a glass shower door and changed out the mismatched hardware to be brushed nickel hardware for the shower, vanity, and light. They also switched out the chocolate vanity solid surface to a lovely white surface. It’s amazing how just a few changes can totally transform a space. This bathroom just exudes class and style.
I love how these two have embraced their new home, made it their own, and incorporated some lovely touches of their English cottage home. Thanks so much, Steve and Gina, for letting me visit your gorgeous house and see how you made it your own! It is lovely and I wish you many sweet years of memory-making and joy within these walls!
