Help me transform my ranch style home
July 3, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi - I live in a 3 bed 1 bath ranch style home. The setting is lovely on a river but the home leaves me feeling blah.

I love cottage style or farmhouse style. Any creative ideas - I just can't get past the brown boxiness of it.

Thank you

If you can post photos of house from various angles, would be helpful. Important for us to see what you are describing.

Go with the flow. It is what it is, but it doesn't have to be BROWN!
Depending on the light in your area, you can soften it with river-y colors or wrap it in something that comes to life in bright sunlight.
If money is no object, you could add a second floor. Maybe on half the house? Above the garage?
A serpentine wall?
