From Dated Oak to Dream Home


From Dated Oak to Dream Home

When our client had built this home 20 years ago, he built a dream masterpiece, but as time goes by and design and trends change, he knew it was time for a major update.

The dream home already had a fantastic layout, but the space felt very tired and dated. While golden oak has had it's prime days, this masterpiece of oak heaven was ready for a change. 

With the use of primarily paint, The Modern Hive was able to drastically transform this space into and updated dream home!

New paint was selected for the walls and trim, and the kitchen cabinets were painted in a white glazed antique paint application. To add contrast to the space, we painted the kitchen island and wall bar in a rich dark greige color. New backsplash tiles were installed and the flooring got a new and darker stain.

In the sitting room just off the kitchen, we painted the ceiling beams a dramatic rich brown tone that draws you into the space. The entertainment center got a new contrasting paint color, and the fireplace got a face lift in a soft white-wash color.


In this space contrast was key!
