BEFORE AND AFTERS

Before and Afters

I know I have said this before but I LOVE before and after shots.  Sometimes the picture says enough!  This is a project I worked on in the desert.  I finally got some after shots that are worth showing.  The house was the most over done Mediterranean home you have ever seen from the scroll work, to the leopard print carpeting, to the 10 chandeliers (BIG chandeliers) in one room, to the frightening kitchen!  My job was EDITING!  It was demo, demo, demo.  You can only demo so much, however, so I did have to make due with somethings in the home that I wanted to start over on.  I really just wanted to make a clean, fresh home with some hints of Mediterranean.  

I will let the photos do the talking...

I know I showed this before, but I love it.  Can you tell which was before and which was after?

I think my favorite thing in this project was demo-ing and covering up.  There were so many crazy things going on when you looked up- faux bronze raised ceilings, venetian plaster (orange!), torture chambers above the dining table.  Not kidding.  Go back and look!  It turned out much more peaceful!  What was your favorite change?

Hope you had a great weekend!!

xoxo,

PS.  Thank you to the * Bowman Group for many of the after pictures!

  2. Kathleen, you did an amazing job of editing. I love how you said "REALLY?". I think that all the time. Most important, is that it is what the homeowners wanted. Everyone should love their home.
