Okay, can I start by saying that we LOVED this week’s episode! Working with every client is unique, but we would be lying if we said that working with Dick wasn’t extra special! He bought his home almost 50 years ago and had done a lot of the work on the house himself, so getting to come in and keep some of the elements that he put so much time and love into was special!
Location and Inspiration:
Finally! We are back in our hometown of Snohomish this week! Dick’s home was only about a 5-minute drive from the office; funny enough, we have sold multiple homes on the street where he lived! As I mentioned before, Dick did some fantastic projects for his home. One was a cedar wall that surrounded his fireplace. As soon as I saw it, I fell in love! I knew I had to incorporate it into the design as much as possible, and to me, the wall just screamed South West Ranch. I wanted to modernize the space with beautiful tiles, rich woods, and stone textures.
To our surprise, Dick let us know that under the carpet throughout the home was the original hardwood, so of course, we had to uncover it to see if it was salvageable, and lucky for us, it was! We have tried to use the original hardwoods in a few of the houses this season, and we were over the moon that we were finally able to!
Doing a facelift on the kitchen is one of the things that we do in almost every Unsellable, okay, in every Unsellable. Still, I wanted to add a lot of texture to this home! We went with beautiful medium brown-gray cabinets, leather pulls for consistency, and to Jeff’s dismay, terracotta backsplash!
When I decided to take on the South West Ranch Style, I knew I needed to add many patterns, and the way I chose to do it was in the tiles that I incorporated into the design! One of the questions I get a lot is how to mix design tiles without it feeling like too much, and what I like to do is have one main pattern at every eyeline. For example, I pick a bold print for the flooring but keep it a complimentary solid in the shower surround. Note: this doesn’t have to be white or gray; it can be a fun color!
Here are the tiles I used for this week!
