A sneak peak at my personal home!
BEFORE + AFTER
We bought this home and renovated it for 2 months before moving in.There are many things we edited over the last 2 years including: removing and adding walls, new flooring, new paint, new lighting, and the list goes on and on...I wanted to make this house our home. It's eclectic, quirky, not too serious, inviting, and most importantly...highly functional! We are truly enjoying all the rooms in our home... except the kitchen. The design is ready - but for now COVID19, economy and a daughters engagement ha
s taken priority! We are excited about our home and appreciate the opportunity to share it with you!
The breakfast room serves all our meals! The previous dining room in the house will become part of the new kitchen. This is 72" custom made round table with a lazy susan that seats 6-8 comfortably. The best part about it? The washable slip cushions!!!
The 2 story family room hosts an extra large sofa with 2 chaises on each end, a cluster of tables for high function, and a wet bar for entertaining guests. I walk the talk by using performance fabrics. You can see that our sectional is white. With two dogs who love to cuddle on it you'd think that'd be a big no no! Luckily with performance fabrics we are able to unzip the cushions, throw them in the wash, then put them back and it looks brand new!
I'm in love with our powder room! We took out the short cabinetry and mirrored wall. I designed the custom vanity, added a vessel sink, and moved the faucets to the wall. But the wall paper and sconces are what makes this space so adorable!
For the foyer, I wanted to simplify it. Generally my foyers are quiet allowing the other rooms to shine. I painted everything the same color (walls, trim, and handrails), installed a textured grass runner, and a collection of real botanicals up the walls. I love to have a foyer table with a live plant and a constantly lit table lamp that says "welcome" when you walk through the door.
Our once unused home office became worn in with my husband being forced to work from home. It served him well and is a fun space to work!
Ok - so this room typically gets the most comments. It's out there, but gives a nod to a speak easy. FIVE chandeliers were installed to create some drama, accented with some fun art, layered mirrors, velvet drapes and a nubby rug. It's the perfect space to have pre-dinner cocktails with friends in those caramel swivel leather chairs.
Our guest rooms are always ready to welcome out of town guests - or local adult daughters that come to hang for a night!
Most of our terrace level is dedicated to Kat Nelson Designs! We look forward to finishing it soon (It's on the list :) The studio space includes my office, big work tables, walls of fabrics, and the accessories room which all stays continuously busy with client projects!
