What started as a simple condo remodel turned in to a full-blown renovation project.
Most attention was paid to the new IKEA kitchen and bath as well as adding new IKEA storage units in the bedrooms and hallways. We also shoe-horned in a stackable washer/dryer in the back hall to save the three flight walk to and from the basement.
While debating what to do to replace their old floor in the kitchen, we were lucky enough to find an almost exact match of the other flooring in the rest of their home. My contractor had just removed enough yellow pine from a large project in Brookline. A great re-use of a beautiful floor.
Then we removed a wall and combined the old dining and living rooms into one. My flooring contractor did an incredible job patching and matching. And while we were leveling the ceiling and adding more lighting, insulation got installed between the ceiling and the roof. We ran out of budget before we got to adding the hoped-for skylights, but those should happen next year when they re-do their 15-year old roof.
Working with two Asian artists was great fun for me. I got to expand my love of contemporary things to encompass the influences of Japan and China.
