This lovely family, two teenage daughters and their father, decided it was time to take advantage of all of the underutilized space their gorgeous 1928 Eastmoreland English cottage. They asked us to create a plan for a three-phase total home remodel. Goals include the addition of a basement bathroom, turning their basement storage space into a bedroom–with walk in closet(!), moving some walls and creating a better flow for the main floor, a dormer addition and new bathroom for the second floor, and some space layout adjustments for all three floors. The end goal is to have each member of the family feel like they have their own space: oldest daughter in the basement, father on the main floor, and younger daughter on the second floor.
For Phase I, we’re starting in the basement. The oldest daughter, who has been sharing a room with her younger sister, is beyond ecstatic to be moving into her very own basement bedroom–it’s almost like a private apartment!
Here is a little Before, Demo, and Reconstruction for the staircase:
And the bedroom:
In the next post, I’ll show you how we took a cramped laundry room and turned it into a beautiful laundry/bathroom.

You’re in control, know what you like, and treat yourself right. The take-charge colors of this autumn palette play up your strengths beautifully, with bold greens, warm yellow, and burnished rust accents. Choose a variety of fabric textures for rich contrast. Leather and linen look especially pretty with this palette.
This rustic palette blended seamlessly into our remodel of a 1970’s vacation home in Sunriver. Soft gold, rusty brown, and a dark olive green accentuated our Cowboy Chic decor. Vacation homes are especially fun to decorate because you really get to go wild with accessories and color. We opted for reclaimed wood, antique metal finishes, and farm-themed art.

Your style is quietly classic; you prefer tasteful over trends. The down-to-earth sand, shell and beach grass tones of this hushed palette give you the timeless look you’re after and make it easy to combine colors with confidence. Bring in some texture with your fabric choices, velour and chenille will bring a plush look to your room.
Below is a photo from one of our Decorate With What You Own projects. This charming newer home on the outskirts of Portland needed some color to bring the homeowner’s existing furniture and accessories together. She wanted a soothing space to relax and this palette’s subtle, sandy tans were just the ticket. We added some texture with plush throw pillows and blankets. Take a look at the rest of the house over here. Or click the photo below.
You’re easygoing, comfortable, enjoying life’s simple pleasures. This understated palette offers the ideal hint of color to make you feel right at home. Choose slightly deeper tones for your fabrics and keep that softness going with plenty of texture.
Earlier this summer we did a “His & Hers” double bathroom remodel and this palette was the perfect bridge for the gap in their unique styles. Try this palette with rich wood and dark fixtures to bring some drama.
