Reader’s home – Beth’s mid-century transformation

Posted on Mon, 18 Feb 2013 by KiM

It’s so much fun to see what a little paint, blood sweat and tears can do to a home that desperately needs an update. Beth sent us some before and after photos of her home that she’s been slaving over for the past year and I am in awe of the transformation. It is now much more modern slathered in white paint, and the kitchen renovation is a ridiculously effective update for not much cash. She’s clearly a fan of mid-century modern design so that’s a bonus in my book. Here are a few before photos to get you started. 

Hold on to your hats folks! Here’s what Beth’s home looks like now…

bella says:

Don says:

It's a good start. I'd like to see more photos when it's done.

peggy says:

Amazing! So happy to see an after post. I love all the white! Also love your sparse style. The dog is too cute!

Dana says:

I would LUV to know where the blue 1 1/2 chair is from. I've been searching, searching! And it looks great!

Beth says:

Dana: it's the Harnosand chair from IKEA.

Don: you're more than welcome to follow along at my blog, I post my progress there.

The house moved from the Northwest to Scandinavia. Beautiful! Just enough mid-century to build a bridge between the early 1900's and modern times. I was surprised to see pale wood in the bathroom, rather than the warm wood you've used elsewhere. Like everyone else, love the vibe! Are you in search of one perfect artwork for the kitchen?

noodle says:

Beaut. I love the simple round light fittings in the lounge and upstairs landing…

Mark says:

Love it. simple yet elegant!

What's the paint colour on the wall going up the stairs?

Beth says:

Mark: The paint in the kitchen/hallways is Benjamin Moores Grey Owl.

I love the light by the blue "reading" chair. Can you share where you got that? Thanks!
