Elizabeth Burr recently moved into a Craftsman home that needs some fixing-up. The project focuses on bringing out the charm in this bungalow with a new paint job, dressing up the windows and moldings and putting in a new yard.
Designer Shane Reilly takes on the challenge of uncovering the beautiful house within. Many of the original Craftsman-style details have been painted over or covered up. Reilly and Burr work together to bring out the original structure and give the home a new character.
Before the makeover the outside of this home was in need of some touching up. The paint needed a fresh coat and the front yard needed a bit of loving care. Now the home looks fresh and charming thanks to a few simple fixes.
Here’s how they accomplished it:
- Paint the home green-gray with white trim for a more earthy look
- Front door gets painted red for accent
- Dress up the windows with new trim and molding.
- Natural looking pattern stone goes on the new walk and the porch caps
- House numbers, porch lights, and trellises on the porch
- New window boxes for flowers
- A new lawn goes in, with plants, flowers and bougainvillea for the trellises
