before + after: dom's coffee part 2

Yesterday, we briefed you on the process of designing Dom's Coffee. Today, we share what it has become and we couldn't be happier with the result! BIG sigh of relief. Thanks to dream clients Asta, Gitana, Andrius and Victor for being such a pleasure to work with- we are honored to have been involved in your shop and we hope the absolute best for you guys! Dom's opens Friday (in the greater Hartford area) so go get your latte with a pretty heart. It's waiting for you!

In Progress: Leah's Dining Room

You can now subscribe to our blog! Just submit your email below.

Our VERY kind and sweet client, Leah, agreed to let us share in progress images of her dining room, which we are happy to say is moving along quite nicely. 

Her quaint 1940's home oozes vintage charm with arched doorways and original wood floors but the existing dining room corner cabinets were not a favorite. SO. After a back and forth about possible demo and construction and completely new cabinets and built ins and doors, etc, etc, etc, we decided to keep it simple, take the doors off and make it work. And it did! Painting everything the same color and adding paneling to distract from some of the inconsistent lines makes the room feel larger and more cohesive. Our notes above highlight more plans for the room that we are excited to post once completed! Thanks to Leah for allowing us to share and for being a dream client!

before + after: CT mid-century ranch

Isn't this one hot gorgeous space? Wait until you see the befores. Rehabitat was a business idea that developed from Diane Schmunk Interior Design Services as a way for the two of us to work together (mother/daughter duo!), branch into new styles and locations, and offer our Rehab Boxes. But Diane still very much works through Diane Schmunk IDS and this is one of those projects. The transformation is unrecognizable because there was some serious construction and renovation that happened thanks to the clients' vision, High Street Designs and many, many others. Seeing the finished product is beyond exciting- read more about the design and see lots more photos here!

before and after: sue's family room

Introducing, our latest and greatest Revive Box AND Restyle Box, finally! It's really gratifying seeing the interiors from start to finish. And this one was particularly fun to work on. Our client Sue entrusted us with her family room not long after they moved into their quaint Connecticut home. (See what her box looked like here.) We expanded on her love of color and mid-century style to bring her family a room of happy cheer where they can laze on the sofa and watch their cute as ever baby roll around on the cozy rug. Or if nothing else, at least a fun room in which they can watch their favorite TV show. See more photos here!

Mitch had all the great bones to a room - a lovely sofa, 2 cozy leather chairs, an oversized coffee table - but it was feeling bare. We were happy to help with some finishing touches! A graphic rug, fun firewood storage, a colorful lamp, and a great bookshelf were a few things we recommended to transform the room. (The natural light adds to the drama of the before & after but SHHHH, thats a secret!) See more photos here!

on the hunt @ collinsville antiques

You know those conversations that begin with "when I win the lottery"? Well, I would own a vintage home shop where I wouldn't be concerned about making a living or collecting junk in my already filled apartment (because of course I would have a huge warehouse where I could store an unlimited amount of antique goods and fix things up as I so desire- my own Home Depot, if you will. Also I will need a truck for traveling the country. And did I mention everything will be free? For the good of your homes!)

In the meantime, we'll just continue to enjoy it as a hobby. And if you see something you like, let us know and we'll source it for you! (Just shoot us an email. Rehabitatdesign@gmail.com)
