CL: What did you do to make it yours? What is your decorating philosophy?KH: First of all, we painted everything, since the entire house was painted in peach tones. That alone made a huge difference. Then we replaced the wood floors, the carpet, the tile and all of the window treatments to brighten up the space. We installed all new lighting fixtures throughout and added cabinetry in the living room
, then completed the contemporary look with our artwork. Our philosophy was to select a color palette that pulled away from the existing look. Our designer, Lynn, found an entirely different color palette that complemented the existing hard materials.
