Purchasing a home can be a very exciting time. However, when you purchase an older home that requires a makeover, it can become daunting, especially when the project is of this size and scale. You need to be able to collaborate with a painter that can implement your vision and ideas. Customer Lizzie Cox chose us. Her new home needed a facelift and we were there to help!

 

Before…

The entrance had neutral walls and trim with a black matte door.

In the Foyer we painted the trim, hung the Farrow and Ball Ranelagh wallpaper and painted the door a high gloss finish.

Before…

The hallway stairs had wood stained risers and a wooden banister along with monochromatic colors above and below the chair rail.

After!

We painted the risers on the steps white, which contrasts nicely with the newly painted black railing. The additional picture molding gives the illusion of wainscoting, which dressed up the foyer.

Before…

There was a lot of wood stain in the kitchen extending from the beams and carried throughout the trim, the walls and the floors. The cabinets were also wood stained and these elements combined created a closed-in feeling to the kitchen.

After!

We degreased, sanded and scraped, primed and painted the cabinets. Then we used our in-house spray booth to apply this beautiful Benjamin Moore White Dove. The light-colored cabinets, trim, ceiling beams and walls brightened and enlarged the kitchen!

This area is an extension of the kitchen with a fireplace at the other end.

After!

All of the woodwork was painted white, including the bookcase, panels and ceiling beams. Our craftsman Brian Smith whitewashed the fireplace to create this beautiful, uniform look. The brighter walls also make the floor pop!

The heart-of-pine paneled mudroom.

After!

The mudroom looks fabulous! It is amazing that the knots don’t bleed through the paint. The birch tree woods wallpaper by Cole & Son adds dimension and brightness to the whole space.

This huge sunroom with plenty of windows for viewing the yard had green trim and an exposed brick wall. It was finished with a flagstone floor.

After!

This sunroom looks amazing with the painted brick and trim! The light color in combination with all of the windows creates such a bright, cheery room and brings the outdoors inside. The walls are Feather Down with White Dove trim.

Mrs. Cox had noticed the quality of our craftsmanship through working for designer Suellen Gregory. When I spoke with Mrs. Cox, I asked her why she chose H.J. Holtz and Son. “While working with Suellen I saw the caliber of your work and I love the way you treat clients. I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else.”

 

She noted that we “work magic” and that she knew exactly what she wanted it to look like.  She knew the skill level of H.J. Holtz and Son could execute what she wanted. There was never any other painter considered and she has not looked back once.

 

Mrs. Cox also shared that her family loved having our craftsmen in her home.  They would joke with the family while they ate breakfast in the mornings and were missed when the project was completed.

 

Mrs. Cox is very happy with our work and loves the transformation.  It is stunning to see the before and after pictures.  We are thrilled that our customer loves our work!
