A House in Kansas

I’m on the road in Kansas, visiting my lifelong best friend, so what better way to combine work and relaxing than writing about her recently renovated home?  Tara and her husband purchased their home in October of last year and renovated it in the months that followed.

Before the house was a drab yellow and outdated maroon…

But with a fresh coat of white paint and contrasting black accents, their house is a gorgeous addition to a street lined with lovely homes.  Her husband even replanted the existing shrubs giving maximum impact on a minimum budget.

The interior needed even more work than the exterior.  The kitchen was in dire need of some TLC and a better floor plan…

So they removed a wall and opened up the kitchen to the dining and sitting area, installed new cabinets and countertops, bought new appliances, and installed plenty of new lighting.  Now they have a kitchen fitting for the period of the home, but with modern conveniences and features, perfect for a growing family!

Plus a wine bar that’s ideal for the parents of that growing family!  Don’t you love the stainless steel backsplash?

The living room is warm and inviting

And a quintessential little girls room in a pale shade of pink!

The bed belonged to my best friend growing up – I remember sleeping in it myself!

Wish you the best in your beautiful new home Greg and Tara!
