Host Joan Steffend and designer Todd Pinzuti bring a style to a couple's bungalow that matches both their tastes.
$128 — Buffets
Simple stock kitchen cabinets were converted into matching buffets. Molding, a dark patina and post feet were added to the cabinets to give them a more finished look. The tops of the buffets were painted a simmering red hue and topped with glass.
- wall cabinets — Menard’s
$36 — Paint
A cool parchment tone was added to the walls to liven up the room. The chair rails were also painted to give the room a more expansive look.
- wall paint — Behr
$50 — Window Treatments
Vintage 1940s fabric was an ideal choice for blanketing the windows. Antique drawer pulls replaced traditional finials for a funky new look. Vintage wallpaper with a zesty green pattern was placed on the remaining windows to add more privacy and character to the kitchen.
$40 — amps
Contemporary lamps added an unexpected twist to the matching buffets.
$99 — Mirror
A large modern mirror was added to make this small room seem grand. Mirror tiles and mosaic embellishments were attached to particleboard to create this fascinating accent piece.
- mirror medallions — Jo-Ann Fabrics
$91 — Chairs
Colorful slipcovers were made from table runners to give the chairs a swift update. The homeowners' traditional style winged chair was covered with a fun stripe fabric to continue the upbeat color palette.
Elegance reigns in this multipurpose space for living, dining and working.
