We moved into our ranch style home in 2014; however, it was built in 1964 and hadn't been touched since the final nail went in! The house was filled with every retro design cliché you can imagine: faux pebble linoleum, shiny wood paneling on the walls, orange wooden cabinets, and even a built-in blender.
We lived in our home for a few years before beginning a remodel of the main living spaces, and I am grateful for that time where we really got to know the house and how we would live in it. It allowed me to figure out exactly how I wanted to change things.
Since then, we have removed the old carpet and linoleum, added baseboards, painted, and completely remodeled the kitchen & living room. We have also updated the guest space, laundry room, and dining room.
I have absolutely loved getting to design this house! My style is a mix of modern and vintage farmhouse, which has been a fun balance to create! I hope that by sharing my experiences, sources, and lessons learned you will be inspired to renovate your home to better suit your family!
