We have mentioned before that we do many different types of projects here at Side by Side Design. On the interior side, we do everything from consultation to full remodel and construction projects and everywhere in between. Our friend Erica who you might remember from previous blog posts (as she is an incredible photographer and fellow twin) is slowly remodeling her home one project at a time and has used us for consultation throughout every stage of the project. I started by putting together an overall look for the completed house and we have been using that as our guide every step of the way. Together Erica, her husband David, and I have decided on a wood flooring to use throughout the majority of the house, a new stair railing to modernize the space, light fixtures and paint colors throughout. The house is really starting to come together and we are ready to show off the first finished space, the entryway … It’s not just Erica’s photos that make it look this good! 

In these side by side photos, you can truly see the changes that have been made. The overall crisp look, monochromatic colors, and transitional fixtures are right up my alley.

This console table and mirror was one of the only items to remain in the entry. Its narrow profile is the perfect fit and gives the family a place to display photos.

The entryway sets the tone for the overall color palette in the house. We wanted to keep everything very neutral and the light gray walls do just that.

The high ceilings in the entryway give a grand appearance when you first walk in. I found this silver lantern and love how open and airy it is.

Here is a view from the other direction. Eventually, the door frame will get stained to match the flooring which I think will give it a more finished look.

… and one of the new stairs and railing.

I know it has been a long time in the works for this family. I also know it is not easy when your own home is in construction and has constant workers in and out, but this special couple should be extremely proud of their patience as it is truly turning out beautifully. We will be sharing more spaces here on the blog as they are completed. Stay tuned!
