Today I worked on the preliminary design for the second floor of an upcoming project.
I can not tell you how excited I am to be part of this remodel!
This home is part of Kalamazoo’s history….and its the cutest 1920’s colonial ever!!
In the best shape too!
The previous owner took great care of this house and now we are going to tweak it a bit for my clients before they move in.Unfortunately, it has to be rewired first due to knob and tube wiring.It’s a total budget killer….and I am not looking forward to the weeks of plaster work that will follow before we can get inside to start the design transformation.
The entire second floor of this colonial belongs to two little boys….are they lucky or what?
Here is what we have in store for them!
First Up….The Play-space they share at the top of the stairs. This is the perfect little space to hang out and play video games or watch TV.I even had a request for a mini-fridge from a four year old!! Too Funny!
There is a room off to the left of the playroom that is the ultimate boys room. The previous homeowner sold us his two antique brass twin beds from Europe, which are so fabulous!! The room has a built in desk area and small sitting porch, which will make a great place to play toys. We went with a fun “Bug Theme” that can be easily changed as this oldest sibling grows up.
The other bedroom is a bit smaller for the youngest boy in the family. I think his bed is by far the coolest though….lets hope there is no sibling rivalry over the beds!!!
Kids spaces are the most fun part of my job for sure!
Stay tuned….next is the first floor and master bath!
