Hi All! I’m so excited to have Jessica Gordon showcasing her work for Noble Designs. Jessica is an amazing designer and I’m so happy to have her to work with on a daily basis. Enjoy her write up on the Kelso family….
I was introduced to Brittany and Brandon Kelso through Cami Jones and Company. The Kelso’s decided to renovate their existing home after contemplating starting over with a new house. The primary goal was to lighten the rooms and create a cohesive design plan, with spaces that were more functional for their family and friends. Several smaller updates had been made, but in the end, they had multiple band aids and still nothing they were excited about.
We were able to transform the rooms into beautiful and functional spaces, with the help of trusted contractors. While we created the overall plan for the home, Brittany was excellent in taking on the finishing personal touches.
The kitchen had the most transformation with a complete cabinet gut and opening of the sunroom wall. This allowed for an open plan and space to locate a desk and sitting area. We constructed the island into a rectangle shape to allow for more counter space and work flow.
The quartz countertops were continued as slabs for backsplash to create a clean and modern look to the kitchen, while new brass hardware added warmth against the white cabinetry.
With the corner desk moved to the former outdoor space, this created a spot for a dry bar and storage. The contrast in cabinet color designates that the bar is here and open for entertaining family and friends.
While demo was happening in the kitchen, we continued it on into the dining room, where we replaced dark pattern tiled with the same hardwoods throughout the house. This really updated the space and made the dining room feel larger and a part of the hallway and entry.
There aren’t many clients who immediately get excited when you say, “Let’s paint the walls black and add wallpaper to the ceiling!” However, Brittany saw the vision and was on board! Yaass!!! Now, when you walk in the entry way, there is added drama, and everyone wants to eat at the dining room table!
The formal living room was definitely stuck in JOCO’s favorite era, with dark chocolate walls and oversized dark furniture, with a tiled fireplace to coordinate as well. Here, we lightened the walls, added a statement chandelier and had a major makeover to the fireplace. The black soapstone looks absolutely stunning with its simplicity!
The master bath also had a makeover with heated flooring, new stand-alone tub and new tile in the shower. The light flooring and walls also tie the rest of the updates together for the desired cohesive look.
The bonus love and warmth comes from the rescue fur babies! These two sweeties are thrilled to have the renovation complete, so they can go back to daytime naps.
