I am so thrilled to see my Laurelhurst project reach completion. It has truly been a labor of love. This home has every modern convenience a homeowner could want! Located in a lovely Seattle neighborhood, this street is overflowing with families and fun. I should know, I lived in this house for a short time.

 Can't believe this beauty was a tiny one story bungalow.

 These raw wood floors need care but boy are they worth it!

Initially, my business partner and I bought it as a flip but as time went on I thought this was a good home for me and my family. So we moved in as the designs were drawn up and we waited for permits. Once we realized staying in the home during construction was not an option due to some changes in the remodel plan, the whole project took on a life of its own. We had to roll with a new plan.

We regrouped but, I finished this home off as if it were my own. And I am so happy I did – it has so much attention to detail and special finishes that I would want for myself; an open floor plan, tons of entertaining spaces, an outdoor living room, appliances and finishes that are fabulous.

With lots of twists and turns, I loved the process and definitely the final product! Cheers to staying fluid in life. It is always worth it! Some lucky homeowner will enjoy this home to the fullest. I am so thrilled to have taken on this project. 

Over the next several weeks, I am excited to share each room of the home and all the finishes we used.  I’ll be sharing paint colors, tile, lighting, bath fixtures and more. If you like what you see in this home, you can have it too!

 Just for fun, here is a photo of where we began. Hard to believe!
