Lynn and Brett Shugrue live in a brick duplex that really does not stand out from the rest of the homes in the neighborhood. So they are looking to transform their simple and dull home by using modern elements and some contemporary style.
With the help of designer Christopher Ralston and landscape architect Susie Ensign, the Shugrues were able to freshen up their boring duplex and set it apart from the rest of the homes on the block. Highlights include a flagstone path in the yard, wooden shutters and new front door.
- New Gray paint
- Black wooden shutters
- Glass front door
- Silvery nickel features
- New fence with gray stain
- Stone-printed concrete overlay for the driveway and walkway
- Flagstone paths in the yard
- Lush new landscaping
- New porch furniture
- Serene garden water feature
New products include a sink that cooks, a chlorine filtering shower head and test-driving appliances.
