If you are an active Instagram follower then you know #Renée very well, for those who don’t follow my Insta-Stories, let me introduce you to her. Renée is a sweet home located on the edge of our historic district in Riverside, CA. She is about 1,000 sqft. and was recently renovated by our team. Let me reel it back to the beginning and how this renovation came to fruition. Our client’s gave us a call and asked if we could help them renovate their income property, put it on the market and sell it for a profit. Oh and by the way the timeline was six weeks for completion. At this point we had no idea what the property’s condition was, all we knew was that it was occupied by renters for about a year.
Inspired by the stunning homes of Provence, south of France, French country design typically involves ruffles, distressed woodwork, stone walls, mixed patterns, and muted/subdued hues. Most often when I think of this style I think eclectic-simple-euro-comfort living. This week we are rounding up our top picks to create a French country kitchen.
Too many times I've mentioned modern to clients and the picture that instantly pops into their minds is cold, sleek white shiny cabinets, and no character. I'm here to set the record straight and say that modern has more sides to it other than just boring black and white with straight lines. There are many ways that modern design can take on some warmth but the best way, and must I say my favorite, is by adding loads of wood and earthy color palettes. To demonstrate this we've taken inspo from a kitchen we are currently obsessing over and created a mood board for a living room.
