Moore House Interiors Home: Remodel Part 1

When we bought our house about 5 years ago; it was a dream come true.  Five acres for the kids to run around, a pond for fishing & a dream to redo our home just the way we wanted it.  Oh & the sweet neighbors! The house had fabulous bones, but it was dark...really dark & a bit dated.

This was the first renovation I ever led & I learned so much throughout the process. I think the experience of walking through my own remodel has helped me relate to our clients. I’ve been there & I know how stressful & overwhelming it can all be, however, if you have the right people on your team to help you make the right decisions, it turns out to be a homerun. And did we ever luck out with the most amazing team at Stillwater Builders, who walked us through the process & brought my vision to life.

Welcome to our home.

First up, the dining room, breakfast nook and kitchen....paint, paint & more paint.  I wanted to lighten this place up & get some updated decor in all these areas! Yall, I have 15 shades of gray up on the walls trying to find the right color that would look the same throughout the house.

Next up, the breakfast nook--as you can see it was red...really red, as was the entire kitchen.  In this room we added wood beams to the ceiling to add a little rustic feel, as well as some paint, a new light fixture & our own furniture.  We also decided to continue the wood floors that are in the formal living & dining into the kitchen & breakfast nook.

After our initial renovation of our home we moved in & lived with everything for a few years. One of our breakfast nook windows had a leak a couple of years ago, so when we had to go in & fix the damages we did more to this breakfast nook, to make it feel more cozy. We removed the arched transom windows, added a shiplap accent wall & wainscoting. A new light fixture & bigger table so we always have room for dinner guests & this space feels bright & a little more casual.

And last on our Part 1 of the tour is our kitchen, the most drastic change to the house.  When we first looked at the house, I walked into the kitchen and immediately knew exactly what I wanted to do.  Now this kitchen, as is, is really pretty, just not our taste.  The red had to go, and so did the raised area on the island.  And I really really really wanted new windows (have I mentioned that I HATE arched windows?), which my husband thought I had lost it.  I love the brick around the stove, but due to some issues we ended up having to take it down.  I'm over the moon excited about how it turned out. It fits our needs perfectly & just feels like us.
