YOUR Old House Remodel Contest | Bo A.
My wife and I brought a little mid century house back to life with an exterior, landscape, interior, and guest house renovation. We learned a lot together, and have enjoyed trying new ideas.
We painted the exterior almost black—inspired by homes we saw on our honeymoon in Iceland. We added the cedar privacy screen for depth and warmth. The landscaping is made of primarily desert plants that can survive the summer heat.
In the entry we did new lighting, paint and decor. The glass for we added to the front let’s in beautiful light to this spot.
We have worked to carry the mid century exterior design into the interior with modern lighting and furniture. This old house has truly become our new home with all of our persobal touches.
Here are two shots of what the exterior looked like when we bought the house.
