East Grand Rapids Midcentury Modest | Before & After

I worked on this adorable midcentury modest ranch in East Grand Rapids at the beginning of 2017. It was a fun project with a very fun client, and it all came together beautifully! We worked together on the kitchen, dining & bathroom.

Nearly everything was touched in this house: flooring, kitchen & dining, plus the bathroom. All new lighting, appliances, baseboards & trim, paint, etc. It's basically like a brand new home wrapped up into an adorable midcentury home in a desirable neighborhood.

While this is the only all-white kitchen I've ever designed, this house didn't have the oversized windows I'm usually working with, so the white-n-bright that my client was drawn to during the design process was certainly the right direction here.

Of course I went minimal with slab doors & non-obtrusive finger pulls. We got rid of the wall between the dining & kitchen, which made a huge difference in the overall flow. We took out the traditional U-shaped kitchen and replaced it with a center island, which is great for entertaining and casual dining. My client fell in LOVE with the stunning iridescent backsplash tile, and I couldn't resist adding some wood with those oversized West Elm pendants I've always loved.

My client has decided to sell this adorable little home, so it's currently listed with my favorite midcentury modern-loving Realtor, Emily Verwys. Head on over to the listing for more information! Hope it goes to someone who will love it as much as I do :)
