Country Home Update

EEID was recently presented with a challenge to revamp a country home without changing much of what is existing...The home is grand and loved by the family that owns it, however, it is somewhat stuck in the 80's.

My goal is to lighten the look, clean up the lines and freshen it up to reflect a casually luxurious feeling.

The Dining room is being 'lightened up with a soft textured finish, a new dining table and chairs will be coming.

An entry dome which was finished years ago with an antique finish is being re-vamped with a warm silver leaf treatment. The entry table will be changed as well.

The Kitchen is being refinished to include a wonderful grayish glazed finish on the island and softening the rest of the cabinets to remove some of the strong umber glaze.

A few other changes are being implemented with some upholstery and accessorizing...I'm looking forward to seeing this project completed and brought to a new life.
