Transforming Spaces Into Beautiful Places™ A Before and After

Transforming Spaces into Beautiful Places™ has always been the tag line of Patti Johnson Interiors and everyone loves a good Before and After, right? I certainly do – especially after six months of work to produce the end result for this Great Room.  I will be doing a series on Before and After projects from Patti Johnson Interiors that I have completed over the past two years. Hope you enjoy and feel free to comment on these amazing transformations!

First order was to rework the tired and traditional (dated) fireplace and small mantel and the bookcases. I selected a new modern fireplace insert with a stainless steel interior to reflect the flames and a water feature by Adagio. In addition, I selected Cambria quartz as a new surround and hearth. Removing some of the shelving in the built-ins and giving them a more dramatic color palette really changed the entire look and feel of the space. Custom lighting, custom painted horses and great furniture by Bernhardt brought the space to life but kept it cozy and intimate for entertaining.

Removing the chair rail and opening the wall to the adjacent den, beautiful color on the walls and ceiling with amazing light fixtures, this dining area is now an enjoyable place to dine.

Change out the spindles, paint the handrail and newell posts and give them an artistic finial. Paint the wall and risers black and Voila! Amazing Transformation!
