Look at this amazing "before & after" from my friend Vanessa (& T'ien) at Space V&T. What changes do you see?
The fireplace, all the white paint, the iron doors, the view.....so much brighter and more cheerful. This property in Echo Park (Los Angeles) has been renamed the Echo Park Farm. Space V&T designed the room maintaining many original elements and charm of the property, all the while updating elements for today's busy lifestyle.
It's amazing what white paint and more windows can do. My other designer friend, Mead Quin Design, loves painting everything white. It definitely made a difference here. It looks like they even painted the floor. What a beautiful transformation of a craftsman home.
