North Ridge Home Tour: BEFORE & AFTER

For the past 8 months, I've been working to turn this house into an inspiring, relaxing home for a busy family of five. My designs blended California cool with a bit of boho and a lot of cozy comfort. We were about 80% done with the children's bedrooms when their dream home went up for sale (you know - the kind that you stalk and think "if that house ever goes on the market..."). Long story short, they decided to take the plunge and will be moving to a new house, which means the one we just redecorated will hit the market this week!  I'll link the real estate listing when it's ready, but for now take a look at these before and after shots (by Eve Hobgood).

I have so many more photos of this gorgeous house, but I might need to break them up into another post. One of the most important things we did was paint the walls White Dove by Benjamin Moore. The house felt so dark before and the white completely transformed the rooms making them feel bigger and brighter. I really can't say enough great things about White Dove. It looks good everywhere - interior, exterior, trim, walls, ceiling, on furniture, etc. Imma believer in the magic of this color (or lack of).
