Room to Grow

While Pema and John are thrilled to have more square footage, the closed-off floor plan of their new house isn’t well suited for a growing family. Property Brothers to the rescue!

Living Room, Before

From the wall sconces to the fireplace, this old living room was the definition of dated.

Living Room, After

Jonathan and Drew breathed some life into the living space using dark hardwood floors, eclectic accessories and lively patterns.

Heating Things Up

The original brick fireplace was cozy, but the new white tile facade gives this hearth a modern edge.

Into the Woods

Above the fireplace, the Scott brothers balanced crisp, white accents with more rustic elements like this woodland print and decorative twigs.

Mix and Match

Is it just us, or do Jonathan and Drew’s outfits subtly match the living room? Pattern mixing for the win. 

Lovely and Luminous

The Scott brothers took advantage of the large window in this room by sticking to neutral wall and furniture hues that help reflect the natural light.

Who Needs Walls?

The Scott brothers strategically placed the furniture to create distinct separations between rooms, but the lack of walls makes the space feel comfortably open and spacious.

Pretty Pattern

While the furniture and walls stick to natural hues, Jonathan and Drew jazzed up the decor with bold, vibrant patterned pillows. This blue-and-white pattern is reminiscent of the famous Willow china pattern.

Cohesive Curtain

The same fabric is scattered throughout the home, including curtains in both the living and dining rooms, creating a naturally cohesive feel.

The Collected Look

The Scott brothers’ living room design blends modern, industrial, and rustic aesthetics — such as the combo of these antlers and copper wire sphere accessories.

Battle of the Bros

Whoa there, Jonathan and Drew — keep your accessories to yourselves!

Dining Room, Before

The dining room had a quaint feel, but the antique table and lace curtains weren’t exactly the look the homeowners had in mind.

Dining Room, After

After the Scott brothers stepped in, the dining room was transformed into a chic, modern meets industrial space. Plus, by swapping the single window with a set of french doors, the dark wood is balanced by ample light.

Lively Light

This modern chandelier, reminiscent of the classic midcentury Sputnik design, adds just the right amount of whacky and whimsy to the room’s design.

Eclectic Seating

The new dining area boasts an eclectic mix of a sleek modern dining table, industrial metal chairs and trendy bench seating.

Hot and Cold

The bench seat adds yet another unique industrial detail to the room — not to mention the extra seating for family and friends. And the white, faux fur covers softens the overall look.

Hide and Seek

Pay no attention to the men behind the curtain...

Kitchen, Before

Pema and John’s kitchen was a sad combo of dated appliances, countertops and cabinets. Not to mention, it was cramped as could be!

Kitchen, After

Post-reno, the kitchen is open, bright and ready for some culinary action!

Industrial-Chic Seating

The kitchen countertop doubles as a great breakfast bar area, equipped with industrial brushed-metal stools to complete the look.

Justin Hangin' Out

These stainless steel hanging lights add yet another cool industrial detail to the kitchen and dining space.

Dark Vs. Light

The black cabinets at the base of the kitchen are a cool contrast to the bright white cabinetry overhead. Plus the dark color blends seamlessly with the brand new stainless steel appliances.

Breakfast, Anyone?

Drew tests out the functionality of the stylish new breakfast bar.

Eclectic Accessories

Keeping with an eclectic vibe, Jonathan and Drew installed rustic wall-mounted wood shelves, accented by plenty of funky dishware and accessories.

Tile Me Pretty

The bold pattern of this neutral tile backsplash boosts the visual interest of the kitchen space.

Functional Floor Plan

The open layout of the home allows the homeowners to multitask with ease, whether that’s cooking up food while entertaining guests or preparing breakfast while keeping track of their son.

Strike a Pose

Jonathan gets his game face on as he awaits the homeowners’ arrival.

Surprise!

Pema and John are immediately thrilled with their home’s gorgeous transformation.

Happily Ever After

Happy homeowners + successful reno = ecstatic Property Brothers.
