When a tract house with a 2,800 square foot footprint gets remodeled, you know the end result is going to be jaw-dropping (in the best of ways). Check out the before and after transformation of this 1970s home! Think moody blue lacquered walls and persimmon colored baskets for a true Spanish country revival with hints of Chinoiserie majesty.
Scroll to the bottom to see one of my favorite spaces in the home - the inside entryway!
Updated: we've discovered who the designer is responsible for this lovely transformation. It's the wonderful Alison Giese.
AFTER KITCHEN - Moving the sink to the window brought a beautiful anchor and flow to this once-felt-tiny kitchen. Now it is stocked with abounding storage with updated elements such as glass orb pendants, beveled subway tile and khaki cabinets. The brass supports at the bar are a nice nod to the past all while feeling current.

BEFORE (a tired) FORMAL DINING ROOM
AFTER DINING ROOM - A Formal Dining Room Packed with Pops of Color with New and Old Elements.
POWDER ROOM - Such a fun wallpaper and contrasting mirror with the lovely brass sconces, to say the least.
MASTER BATHROOM - The white and gray marble carried throughout unites the elegant brass accents with the masculine wood-toned vanity.
BREAKFAST NOOK - What a darling Spanish country corner complete with a banquette that also doubles as storage!
INSIDE ENTRYWAY - These cowhide steps are inviting and fabulous for guests to be greeted by upon entering. This space is my favorite of all (besides the kitchen)!
