2015 Seagrove Idea Cottage Before & After
Front Porch Before
The home originally featured bright baby blue paint and forest green shutters.
Front Porch After
Small windows were replaced with impact-resistant glass-front French doors by Integrity to impart the interior with more light and create a breezy transition between indoors and out.
Get the Look: The porch base is painted Kendall Charcoal, the floor is painted Chelsea Gray, and the ceiling is painted Cloud Cover, all by Benjamin Moore. The furniture is by Lloyd Flanders, and the fabrics and throw are by Sunbrella. The sunglasses are by Costa.
Family Room Before
Low ceilings and a small footprint made the original living room cozy, but in need of an update.
Family Room After
Before its renovation, the kitchen featured low ceilings, dark cabinetry, and old appliances.

Dining Area After
Guest Room Before
The original guest bedroom had low ceilings and one very small window.
Guest Room After
To bring in more light and make the space feel larger, the team replaced the window with a French door and exposed the ceiling trusses for a loft-like feel.
Previously a simple guest room, the Schnells envisioned a new life for this space—as a light-filled study.
The team outfitted the office with a long built-in desk and a large window, and like in the guest room, they opened the ceiling up to make the space feel larger.
Master Bathroom Before
The original master bathroom needed an update.
Master Bathroom After
The basic backyard served its purpose, but the design team had a new and exciting vision.
