Home improvements began once the McKinney homeowners decided this would be a long term residence. Four weeks from the day we met, paint colors had been selected, affordable art had been purchased for several rooms, the interior of the home had been repainted and our “While You Were Out” Rearrangement was complete!
The homeowners selected six very affordable pieces of artwork from an assortment of options that we presented to them. These were the only new items incorporated into our rearrangement. This art also served as a palette for our paint color selections. Stage One complete!
This McKinney couple craved color. Builder Beige wasn’t doing it. The paint color we selected for the common areas of the house was Sherwin Williams Shagreen. This color beautifully offset the leather and wood tones of their furniture. SW Hazel was chosen for a Guest Bedroom and Red Cent for a Hall Bathroom. …I could go on!
Week Four we were ready for Absolute Painting of Dallas to paint. The entire interior was repainted in record time. The painters could have gone about this at a more leisurely pace had it not been for the World Cup Games scheduled that day!
Two days later the homeowners had us put the house back together and do our While You Were Out ReArrange and in one fell swoop.
But the story gets better yet! At the end of the day this very culinary couple invited me for dinner: An incredible salad of greens, grilled (!) Halloumi Cheese, grilled mushrooms and onions with toasted pine nuts. Memorable!
When we pick up again we’ll probably add strategic window treatments….
