I gotta say, this is one of our favorite transformations. We did our best to just translate the style our clients wanted into this ’70s ranch. Enjoy the before & afters!
Decorative glass definitely has its place, but we didn’t think this home was one of them. The side lights had to go as well.

To give a sense of entry, too, we suggested they add a wall (the small wall to the right), so guests don’t walk directly into the dining room. The wall where the mirror lives is new, too. The room used to be the step-down den, and it is now the new master bedroom.
Here is another picture of what the dining room looked like in its former glory.
As will all projects, we mix the old with the new. The clients owned the mirror and Anisa gave it new life with some chartreuse paint (BM angel trumpet I believe) The buffet, table and chairs were all pieces they owned. They were obviously open to painting the chairs white for some contrast (actually SW creamy) and covering the seats with some Hicks’ fabric. The oversized mod lamps were new, too.
Before, this is what the family room looked like. A pretty bad fireplace surround, more popcorn ceilings and engineered wood floors (that weren’t in great shape).
They discovered brick underneath this stone–such a great find! We painted it white and raised the ceilings, too. A capiz pendant replaced the ceiling fan.
The old panelling stayed, but it was given a fresh coat of paint.
The windows with the great view to the golf course and pool are awesome, but this layout threw us for a loop!
It had this strange little island with only an electric range in it.
The space was great, though–so we thought it best to break up this looooonnnnng room into different spaces with different functions: a banquette area along the back so you can hang out there and enjoy the view, the kitchen in the middle so you can use existing plumbing for the sink and have windows above it, and a game/homework table area closest to the living rooms. This is how it turned out–we (and, most importantly, they) are happy with the results!
The tiled hood with dark grout is my favorite thing in the house! (okay, the white Viking with white knobs, too!)
really, really love the SMEG, too–
One more new addition in the house–a few new powder room next to the laundry. Yes, we love the teal, driftwood & brass!
Thanks for letting us share!
Next post I’ll update ya on our house renovation–it’s looking great.
Hope you’re well….
