As seen on Rehab Addict, the kitchen in the Riley home was completely gutted. New cabinets, appliances and granite countertops were added. A white subway tile backsplash with dark-colored grout adds a vintage touch. In order to keep something from the original home, Nicole Curtis was able to salvage the hardwood floors.
An expert in salvage-picking, Nicole prides herself on being able to renovate and stage a home on a tight budget. Many of the furniture pieces she uses for staging are donated, salvaged from previous renovations or unique garage sale finds, as seen on DIY Network's Rehab Addict.
As seen on DIy Network's Rehab Addict, Nicole Curtis restored the formal dining room to its original beauty. Nicole painted the walls above the hand carved African mahogany fireplace and panels dark gray to draw the eye up to the molding on the ceiling. She removed the 1970s glass and brass fireplace doors, and replaced the wall sconces with more period appropriate versions. Cracked and warped stained glass windows were repaired.
As seen on DIY Network's Rehab Addict, this girl's bedroom features much of the original wood and tile. Kid's bedrooms are very important to Nicole as she always wants to ensure that her restored homes are family friendly. She used a collection of salvaged and antique toys along with some of her son's photos and artwork to stage these rooms.
A brown leather sofa and dark area rug help balance a mostly white living room. Emphasizing family and conversation, the room is centered around two small coffee tables with comfy armchairs in each corner.
Nicole used a new dining set and a salvaged antique dresser when decorating the dining room. Plus, she salvaged old windows from a construction site and turned them into unique frames for family photos.
As seen on Rehab Addict, Nicole Curtis removed pink curtains to allow the big, bright windows to let in lots of light. The white curtains and furnishings make the sunroom feel more peaceful and relaxing.
