Kristin Laing’s before and after extravaganza

Posted on Tue, 16 Feb 2021 by KiM

I have been following Austin, Texas based designer Kristin Laing for some time now on Instagram (I think it was her kitchen that reeled me on – more on that below) so I figured it was about time I feature her work here on the blog. This is the house she lived in for 8 years, until she sold it a few months ago and has since moved into a new place. She shared some really incredible before (from the MLS listing) and afters on her blog and they were so insanely good I had to share. Let’s dig in!

She gave a very detailed resource list in her blog post if you’re wondering what her sources are. After photos by Brian Cole.

Janet says:

Now that is good stuff. Interesting that she kept a lot of the same flooring and carpeting but with the fantastic decorating, paint choices and lighting… She gave them a whole new life. Bravo.

Stephanie says:

The “after” photos look like 3D renderings!

April says:

Love to see these before and after shots. Amazing.

Jackie says:

That was most enjoyable.The afters are beautiful. Thx for sharing

Kim-Pacific Northwest says:

I like that it wasn’t a complete gut job but like others have said she updated with paint and lighting and only the kitchen and bath got major overalls. She did a beautiful job. Inspiring! Thanks for sharing

April says:

Love this transformation. Went directory to Target and bought the coral velvet comforter! The before photos look like every 70s house I’ve ever been in. So much inspiration here. Thank you!
