Wednesday Decor: Jen & Rich's Dwelling, Before & After

My friend & interior designer Jennifer and her husband Rich purchased their home about three years ago. Located in the swanky Passyunk Avenue of South Philadelphia, the house needed a lot of work, which they have been doing non-stop ever since they moved in. The transformation is incredible

The living room was dark and gloomy with dated wallcovering. Painting walls white transformed the entire room into a bright and airy space. Little details, such as paining the staircase hand rail & the ledge of the fireplace mantel espresso brown, offset the white walls and added simple elegant touch. Raising the curtain rod closer to the ceiling made the space feel taller. Clean lines of the mid-century and modern furniture mix, combined with the bright color of accessories completed the room in a nice polished way.

The old cabinetry, appliances, and wallcovering of the existing kitchen were very outdated; they all had to go. A bright-white kitchen cabinetry + chocolate brown quartz countertops, mosaic tile backsplash and ceramic flooring gave this kitchen a brand-new life. Sleek modern hardware & lighting added a great finished touch.

The biggest transformation was made on the third floor of the house, where the previous owner had a game room. Jennifer and Rich decided to turn it into their master bedroom. I adore the simplicity of lines and the color scheme. It exudes peace and tranquility, just like a perfect master bedroom should.
