A Suburban Home Renovation

It might be a good idea to start this post with a warning.

"Caution: This  blog post may produce extreme house envy. Symptoms include throwing out everything you own and starting over. Or hiring designer Holly Mathis. Or both."

So perhaps it's best I don't share all the images just yet. It's for your own good. Trust me.
This summer I did a little styling and photographed this beautiful home for Holly and absolutely marveled at the renovations that were made. 

This home, in a lovely suburban Houston neighborhood, got a major update with Holly's help which gives it so much style and personality. Cabinets were removed, a window added, along with shiplap ceiling, open shelves and beautiful finishes and lighting.  The quartz countertops are gorgeous. This young family has 6 children including a brand new baby and the nursery is absolutely adorable.

The new quartz countertops are beautiful and extremely durable. A great choice for a big family kitchen.

                                 Smart spice storage is so simple and easy with 4oz spice jars.

The family does have a television. It's hidden in the lower right cabinet and raises and lowers by remote. Genius!

Holly is sharing details and sources for this project on her blog so be sure to pop over. I'm sure she'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
