Meet the Homeowner

It’s been eight years since Paul’s divorce, but it’s only been a couple months since he was able to buy his ex-wife out of the house. With her style still visible in every room — not to mention, Paul’s bachelor pad touches like two TVs on the living room wall and stacked boxes for bedside tables — Paul was in desperate need of Orlando’s assistance. With a budget of $45K, Orlando fixed up Paul’s living room, kitchen and master bedroom.

The Kitchen Before

Paul and his ex-wife had previously updated the kitchen, roughly 12-15 years ago. They wanted a country feel with their white cabinets and tiled countertops.

The Kitchen After

Orlando kept the layout the same — but that’s about it! The cabinetry was replaced with a sleeker, more modern version of what it was previously. The new countertops have a stone-look and the stainless steel appliances do wonders for updating the kitchen. For paint, Orlando went with a calming green color.

The Kitchen Before

One great thing about the kitchen was all this yummy natural light! But one bad thing about it was the big clunky dining room table Paul definitely didn't need.

The Kitchen After

Orlando said goodbye to that dining table set and hello to an extended kitchen island that still seats FIVE (!) people. You’ll see he used that nice light green on the island and incorporated brass pendant lighting for a fun pop.

The Living Room Before

Paul had not one but TWO TVs in his living room — one of them wasn’t even hooked up. Otherwise the whole space was just kind of blah. The only thing Paul purchased in the room (besides the extra TV) was the media console.

The Living Room After

What a difference! Orlando used the same wall color as the kitchen and created lovely contrast with a bold blue accent on the fireplace. The media console Paul purchased got a simple facelift and the flooring was replaced with the same high quality wood Orlando used in the kitchen.

The Living Room After

Orlando also replaced the majority of the furniture with cool and functional pieces. This comfy sectional looks like it was meant for that corner!

The Master Bedroom Before

To quote Orlando, “it doesn’t look nice.” And fair enough — there just wasn’t much of a style in this room. The carpeting was very ornate and feminine, the furniture mismatched, and stacked boxes for a bedside table just won’t do!

The Master Bedroom After

5-star hotel much? Orlando picked out some gorgeous new furniture for Paul including a proper bed and side tables. To keep things simple and neutral, he painted the walls ivory and replaced the carpeting with something much simpler.

The Master Bedroom Before

Paul’s master suite includes this great bonus space — but he wasn’t utilizing it very well before Orlando got there.

The Master Bedroom After

Orlando wanted to give Paul a wonderful sitting area space that felt similar to a library. The coffee table you see here is actually a bench Paul and Orlando put together themselves!

The Master Bedroom After

Opposite from the couch is a great media center and storage space that Orlando brought to life with his carpenter Justin.

Meet the Homeowner

Kille had only been divorced for six months when Orlando came into her life. The mom of three has always loved midcentury style but that wasn’t exactly her ex’s taste. With a budget of $30K, Orlando updated her kitchen, bedroom and home office.

The Kitchen Before

Referring to it as a brown, beige purgatory, Kille couldn’t wait to say goodbye to her kitchen. Some of her frustrations included the lack of counter space and storage.

The Kitchen After

Because of Kille’s love for midcentury style, Orlando incorporated very sleek, light wood cabinets with minimalist fixtures. For the floors he used a concrete tile to maintain an earthy feeling and for the counters he used a gray quartz to keep things light.

The Kitchen Before

Another frustration of Kille’s was the fact that when the fridge door was open, it completely blocked the entryway to the kitchen.

The Kitchen After

What a difference removing a wall can make — just look at all that natural light coming into the kitchen now! And, with the fridge relocated to the back of the kitchen, Kille won't have to worry about one of her kids running into its door when open.

Kitchen Details

Orlando loved that Kille had all of her spices on display but hated that they were cramped into a corner of the kitchen. With that in mind, he had a great idea of a custom spice rack, that essentially doubles as an art piece.

The Dining Room Before

Here’s a good look at the original entryway from the kitchen to the dining room.

The Dining Room After

The new dining room was updated to fit the look and feel of the new, midcentury modern kitchen. With the wall gone and the fridge relocated, Orlando was able to add a peninsula with seating for two!

The Master Bedroom Before

Kille’s bedroom was lacking personality when Orlando first showed up. She admitted that she had tried to redo it and incorporate more color, but home design isn’t her strong suit.

The Master Bedroom After

Kille typically gravitates towards safer colors but Orlando wanted to surprise her with a bold choice for her bedroom! He utilized a beautiful pink color on the walls and added a personal touch with a duvet that he hand painted.

The Master Bedroom Before

This might be enough storage for some people, but for Killie it wasn’t enough. Besides her own closet, Kille was also storing her clothes in her son’s closet and in the office.

The Master Bedroom After

To balance out the pink, Orlando used really gorgeous neutral design elements. He also gave Kille plenty of storage for her clothes — but only after helping her get rid of a ton of stuff she wasn't wearing!

The Office Before

Orlando was getting serious ‘80s businessman vibes from this Kille’s home office. Previously, she and her ex-husband shared this space when they worked fro home.

The Office After

Now THIS is a home office! Orlando got rid of all that bulky cabinetry, making room for a new desk area and lounge space.

Office Details

Kille’s new modular desk system was designed by Orlando using inexpensive furniture pieces and custom shelving. It’s much cleaner, much simpler and much more Kille than what was there previously!

The Office Before

With a massive DVD collection displayed on the wall, this side of the office was just as chaotic as the other.

The Office After

That’s much better! Especially when working from home, it’s so important to have an organized, calm space that will allow you to focus. Between this gorgeous navy wall color and all of the perfect details, Orlando has definitely set Kille up for success!

Meet the Homeowner: Michele

Michele is a recently-divorced, boss lady and mom of two who has spent the last year adjusting to life as a single mom. With a budget of $40K, Orlando transforms her kitchen, living room and a single-car garage space she no longer needs.

The Kitchen Before

Michele’s kitchen before was looking a little dated and a little dark. Between all of the brown cabinetry and a backsplash with gold grapes, this kitchen didn’t fit Michele’s vibe at all.

The Kitchen After

In Michele’s new kitchen, Orlando kept the layout the same but everything else had to go. He incorporated the very trendy two-tone look with white upper cabinets and blue lowers. For the backsplash, Orlando chose a very pretty, gray ceramic pattern.

Kitchen Details

The white Quartz countertops really brighten up the space and as a plus, are resistant to stains and scratches.

The Living Room Before

With her kids toys scattered across the floor, Michele’s living room was more of a playroom. But besides that, her ex’s recliner was taking up some precious real estate.

The Living Room After

The new living room perfectly complements the kitchen’s coastal vibes. To accomplish that, Orlando brought in some snazzy new furniture including a more durable coffee table. And with the recliner out of the way, additional barstool seating was a must-have!

Th Living Room Before

In this photo, you can really get a good look at how the living room has been taken over by toys. Not only that, but there were a few design issues including that the fireplace mantle was way too big and the builtins way too ornate.

The Living Room After

A lot of amazing things happened to this side of the living room. For starters, Orlando got rid of those builtins and incorporated open shelving for a more modern, warm feel. He gave the fireplace a facelift with new tile and a new mantle, extended the bench and gave Michele some much-needed storage.

The Garage Before

Michele didn’t really need the single-car garage space after her ex moved out. Orlando saw this under utilized space as an opportunity to make some magic happen.

The Garage After

Orlando decided to convert the garage into an incredibly fun playroom space for Michele’s two kids. To hide the industrial and electrical elements, Orlando hand painted and hung up wall panels for an inexpensive DIY fix.
