I’ve been a real estate agent for 10 years (how am I even old enough for that?!) and while there are many parts of my job I LOVE, one of my favorite parts is to see how a client takes their house and it turns it into a home. Seriously, one of my most favorite things.
I’m lucky enough in that most of my clients remain friends, even after the transaction and after they have closed on their new home. I get to see how my new homeowners have made improvements and made their home their own. It’s a fun way to stay in touch outside of the transaction. And as you know, home improvements and projects/design are kind of my jam.
I can’t wait to start featuring more of these projects to help share different ideas and to give some good pointers on some projects you may be considering. We’ll call it, #fridayfeature. These will all be projects that clients have done to their home. Sometimes simple paint updates, sometimes full-on remodels. Just to showcase different Denver area homes. You don’t have to spend a ton of money to achieve an update (at least, not always!) and I hope by featuring these projects, you can start to get some ideas for your own home.
If you have a project, design idea, backyard landscaping, anything you’d like me to feature, please reach out!
First up on the #fridayfeature, a gorgeous fireplace project!
My client, who I’ve been friends with since our good ‘ol Business School days at CSU (Go Rams!) had an incredible vision for her home. She bought a newer construction home in one of Denver’s prime urban neighborhoods, and knew she wanted to put her own spin on it. She had a great room in the front of her home that was a perfect space to add a fireplace. Not only did she want a “statement wall” with her fireplace, but also some additional storage. After doing some research into different contractors, she finally landed on one who helped her vision come to life. I remember as we walked the house, she would tell me about her ideas. I knew she had the vision, and couldn’t wait to see how it all came together!

And the AFTER!

In addition to the photos, I think it’s helpful to learn a little more about the project, from the homeowners themselves. Here’s what this homeowner had to say about her project:
