This family home in the South Hills was built in the 1950s. Over the summer of 2020, while the family who's lived there for over ten years moved away to enjoy the summer on the coast, their entire home was under renovation. The home underwent a complete interior makeover and exterior facelift.
This lovely family desired to stay in their existing home and update it, rather than move, to ensure the family could remain in the same neighborhood.
The exterior of the home received a major facelift and transformation, including new light fixtures, updated roof and facia, updated wood beams, wood door, wood ceiling and stone added to the entrance and more. This took the home from a dated look to an updated and fresh "modern farmhouse" aesthetic.
Additionally, the dated built-in brick fireplace on the ground floor game room was redesigned. The new fireplace design would now directly tie in with the modern farmhouse style of the exterior, complete with the addition of a large wooden mantle.
DTSH Interiors interviewed each of the family members to understand their unique design style and preferences. From there, DTSH Interiors formulated a plan for six rooms; the living room, dining room, master bedroom, two children's bedrooms and ground floor game room, with the inclusion of the complete fireplace re-design.
The interior also received major upgrades during the whole-house renovation. All of the walls and ceilings were resurfaced, the windows, doors and all interior trim was re-done.
In the dining room, a local sign artist was commissioned to paint a custom quote on the wall transitioning to the living room, which the parents felt strongly encapsulated their family values. It was a quote by Stephen Hawking, and read, "It would not be much of universe, if it wasn't home to the people you love."
The end result was a giant leap forward for this family; in design, style and functionality. The home felt completely new and refreshed, and once fully furnished, all elements of the renovation came together seamlessly and seemed to make all of the renovations shine.
DTSH Interiors partnered with Milestone Custom Homes, who completed the interior and exterior home renovations.
