I’m settling into my remodel house while I build my future home Val-ore House.  The last few details have been added including the fireplace surround. I had concrete fabricated to look to like soapstone.

I named the home Fairview cottage and wanted it to have a quaint feeling. The cabinets in the kitchen were too current for a cottage feel, so I added color to create charm and add dimension to the space.

In the dining nook I painted the walls High Reflective White by Sherwin Williams. I added some interior details below the windows and had a custom phrase hand painted above the windows.

Welcome inside Fairview Cottage. Keeping with small affordable changes, in the remodel I started by painting everything High Reflective White by Sherwin Williams. I added the beams to relate to the mantel and stained them to match the kitchen cabinets. I toned down the fireplace because I had wood furniture and didn’t want it to look too heavy. I am replacing the tile with a black concrete material. So keep following and I’ll reveal the final result.
Fairview Cottage Front Room Before & After

When arranging a room I look at it architecturally. To balance the large window behind the couch I used a big piece of art on the opposite wall.

The whole composition on this wall was designed to relate to the fireplace wall opposite of it. The elements in these spaces could be smaller so I selected the piece with the multi colored drawers instead of a solid chest which would feel heavier in the space and wouldn’t be as effective in the grouping and scale of it all.
