Happy Thursday! Today I’m sharing more before + after photos of my Glendale project.

Before

As you can see the original kitchen was inclosed in a tiny room. In order to create a more open and inviting space, we gutted everything to make room for an island, new cabinets and new lighting.

¬†Designing exteriors is one of my favorite things to do and when I get the opportunity to design an exterior, my first step is to determine the overall style.¬†Once this decision is made, it really sets the tone for the rest of the project — including the landscaping and what happens on the interior. A couple of days ago I received a project¬†in Santa Clarita, a city just north of Los Angeles, and below are several style options that I’m considering. Which is your favorite?

1. A MODERN MEDITERRANEAN APPROACH

 2. A NEW ORLEANS VIBE

3. A COTTAGE FEEL

A simple, yet elegant, approach for an exterior — with beautiful light fixtures and a couple of potted plants, this may be the winner.

In a couple of weeks I’ll post the winner plus the before + after photos.¬†Happy Wednesday!

Last week I shared the photos of the front of the Reseda Project. Today, I’m excited to share the before + after photos of the kitchen!

Reseda Kitchen

BEFORE

 Initially, the kitchen felt closed off from the rest of the home with only a small doorway from the dining room into the kitchen (above).

BEFORE

Even with gutting the kitchen, I was still limited on square footage and really needed to maximize this 200 sq. foot kitchen/laundry. In order to gain more storage and counter space, I eliminated the 2 smaller windows in the back corner, as well as the window on the left. In order to bring in natural light and a view of the backyard, I added a large picture window on the back wall, as well a full light glass door to the backyard.

¬†Happy Monday! The Reseda project is done! Today I’m sharing before + after photos of the front of this sweet California cottage.

BEFORE

Although, the home needed extensive work on the interior, I knew after walking around the property that the exterior was going to be the bigger issue. The home was hidden behind years of overgrowth, the pool had ivy growing in it and the backyard was one large concrete slab.

In order to soften up the exterior, I eliminated all the concrete and replaced the pathways with pieces of large blue flagstone.¬†I painted the entire home ‘Milk Glass’ by Dunn Edwards and added black accents to give it a clean classic look.

I also moved the the porch light from the back wall, where it was hidden, to the ceiling to add extra charm from the street.

MISTER LINCOLN

Sometimes I debate whether or not to keep existing plants but whenever I come across an old rose bush that has remained prolific, even through so much neglect, I know it’s a keeper. This hybrid tea, Mister Lincoln, flourished despite its neglect and the fragrance is amazing!

  Design elements + my favorite go-to plants for a cottage-style garden.

Next time, I’ll be posting the before and after photos of the backyard — ¬†and with 40 + years of overgrowth it turned out to be quite the transformation.

Have a great week!
