A Modern Update For An Open Concept House
The owner loved the layout and design of this home, but did not like the golden colour of the walls. They didn’t work well with her modern furniture. We were able to update the look by painting the walls a mid-tone grey colour.
The new look is dramatically different. The homeowner was excited to set up her furniture and decor items in a space that complimented them. The colour used was Sherwin Williams Repose Gray. It has a slight blue undertone. It’s a great colour for a fresh modern look.
To add a bit of colour in the powder room it was painted a soft spa blue colour.
A few months later the owner hired us to paint more of the rooms in the home. The rec room was one of areas that still had the original gold colour from the previous owner. We painted it with the same grey we used throughout the main living space of the house. The new colour instantly gave it and updated look.
The owner had previously hired someone to paint her daughters room in a vibrant blue colour. They attempted to do it with only one coat of paint. This left the walls with patchy spots. We applied a second coat and now it has the full coverage and intensity that the colour was meant to have.
The den had a combination of gold and burgandy walls that made it feel quite dark. The grey colour works well in the space.
The ensuite also went from gold to grey.
Repainting A Rancher With Updated Colours
The new colour scheme of greys and neutral off whites modernized the look of this rancher. The trim work was changed from a stark white to a warmer white that works well with the new wall colours. The owners had new carpets installed in the bedrooms and had the hardwood floor extended into the living room. We were later called to paint the interior doors that they had replaced and have also been hired to paint their exterior stucco.
The main living spaces were a combination of peach, brown and beige tones. To update the look everything was repainted with Benjamin Moore Natural Cream.
The bedrooms and walk in closet were painted with Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray.
Some close ups of the the fireplace mantles and trimwork painted in the same soft white. The decorate tray ceiling features were painted the same Natural Cream colour as the walls to stand out from the white texture.
Nanaimo Two Storey Home Renovation
The owners purchased this home in the North end of Nanaimo due to it’s beautiful views. They did a major remodeling of the interior that included new flooring, doors and trim work throughout the house. The bathrooms and kitchen were completely redone.
This is one of many homes they have renovated over the years and they continue to use a colour palette that they like. The walls are a butter pecan colour and the trim work and doors are tinted to white with a slight yellow undertone. The only room that was done differently was a soft pink bedroom for their daughter. The owner later had us do some additional painting on the newly installed exterior trim work.
Colour Change Of A New Townhouse
After purchasing this new townhouse the owners wanted to have the wall colour changed throughout the main living area, stairwell, entry and hallways. The darker wall colour was not going to work well for displaying their large collection of artwork.
They also wanted a colour that would keep the space light and airy. Another townhouse will be built on the other side of them which will block out some of their natural light. They chose a creamy white. There’s enough warmth in the colour so that it doesn’t look too stark. It will serve as the perfect backdrop for their artwork. Now they can start to hang it and feel like they have fully moved in.
Jack helped hang their first piece. A stunning kimomo in a vibrant orange colour. It looks perfect on the tall staircase wall.
Refreshing An Older Home
After a period of absence the owners were moving back into their home. The walls were previosly painted in several different colours, including dark brown, tan, green and yellow. They wanted to lighten it up and give the house a fresh new look. To create continuity they choose a creamy off-white to use throughout the home. We painted the majority of the ceilings which also helped to brighten up the rooms. The trim work and doors were painted on the main level. We choose a slightly warm white to compliment the new wall colour.
The previous sage green walls didn’t do much for the fireplace. With the new off-white colour the fireplace really stands out as the feature of the family room.
The new wall colour has given the kitchen a refreshed look and it works great with the cabinets.
Painting the chocolate livingroom walls in an off-white changed the entire atmosphere of the room.
The dining room is much brighter.
We did some major patching and sanding to repair the stairwell walls.
The new colour makes the entry very inviting and has really brightened up the hallway.
The bedrooms and walk in closet were changed from yellow to the creamy off-white colour.
Changing the bathroom wall colour from yellow to off-white gave the room an instant update.
Nanaimo Townhouse Rental Property Repaint
This townhouse was a rental property for a number of years and therefore the walls were pretty beat up with marks and dings. The new owners also purchased it as an investment property. They wanted to have it cleaned up before new tenants moved in. We spent a great deal of time patching the walls and re-pained them in a a colour called Shaker Beige. It’s a good choice for a rental property. It’s an attractive colour and neutral enough that it can work with a variety of furnishings and decor.
Sidney House Painting In Preparation For Selling
We were hired by some former clients in Nanaimo to paint a house in Sidney as part of an update to get it ready to sell. The kitchen and bathrooms have already had some updates and more flooring and lighting will be changed out. The owner plans on having it staged with modern furniture to complete the look.
The rooms were painted in pinks and yellows. We painted a light grey throughout the spaces to give it a more modern look. A deeper grey/brown was chosen for an accent wall in the kitchen. The trim work and doors were done in a complimentary soft white.
This bathroom was originally painted bright pink. A new floor was put in and after changing the walls to a light grey the room looks completey transformed.
The oak coloured parquet flooring is going to be replaced with a modern brown plank, the same as what has already been done in the kitchen. Once that’s done the oak cap and bottom portion of the railing system would look out of place. We painted all those portions out white with the rest of the railing system so that it all blends in.
Nanaimo Condo Repaint
The new owner of this condo didn’t like the stark white walls, but still wanted to keep it light and bright. A light neutral colour with a bit more depth to it was chosen. It works well with the floors.
The trim work and doors were painted in warm white. We also painted the ceilings to brighten up the space, they had become discoloured over the years.
Repainting A Large Custom Built Rancher
The owners love this newly purchased house and the property, but were not fans of the vibrant yellow walls. Before they moved in they had repaint all the walls.
They chose a light off-white with a blue undertone. Through the before and after photos you can see how the dramatic colour change makes each room feel completely different. We enjoyed painting this house and relaxing on our lunches while taking in the views of the beautiful property.
Nanaimo Home Renovation
The owners lived in the downstairs of this home while they did an extensive renovation to main level. The walls were painted in an eggshell sheen while the doors and trim were painted in a semi-gloss sheen in the same colour. This is a popular method used by decorators to give a monochromatic colour scheme but by using the semi-gloss on the trim and doors it gives them a slightly different look. The fireplace was painted a dark chocolate colour and we stained the large ceiling beams. The den was the only room that had a different colour painted on the walls, it was a sage green. The same trim colour that was applied in the rest of the house was also put into this room.
Nanoose House Purchased To Flip
The owner of this house contacted us to paint the entire interior and exterior. He had recently purchased the house and was doing some renovations and a makeover to re-sell it. We painted the newly installed baseboards, trims and doors and all of the walls. We also painted the exterior siding, doors and trim work. We also did a full paint job to the exteriorof the house that can be seen in our album of exterior transformation for resale.
Repainting Of A Vacation Cottage
We’ve enjoyed painting several of these Parksville vacation cottages. The walls of this single story unit were ready to be refreshed. We repainted them in the same soft, cheery yellow.
Two Storey New Construction House
In this new construction home we clear coated the wood doors, painted the interior room and closet doors, trims, bathroom ceilings and walls. The owner of this house was also a finishing carpenter who installed all his own trim work. He wanted to make sure he hired painters that were going to take their time in making sure the trim work looked it’s best.
Two Large New Construction Houses
We were hired to paint two new construction houses that were being built on adjacent lots. We did the complete painting of the interiors which included the walls, baseboards and a lot of elaborate crown molding decorative fireplace fascades. We also stained the beautiful wood doors and wood window trims. Several types of wood were being used in the window and trim applications. Prior to our arrival they had started to clear coat the wood, but the builder did like how it was turning out. Various types of wood were used throughout the house, the doors, door trims, windows, window trims, window casings and the wood windows themselves were all different colours. We had to play around with the clear coat adding different tints and varying the amount to try to make everything appear more uniform in colour.
We also painted the exteriors of both homes which you can see in the exterior album of our work.
Painting Of Commercial Doctors Office
We painted this newly constructed doctor’s office that included the front reception area, hallways, laundry area, washrooms and patient treatment rooms. All the walls were done in modern warm light grey colour accented by soft white trim work and doors. The front reception desk had thin decorative panels wrapped around it that we sprayed in a darker grey.
Colour Change Throughout A Two Storey House
We’ve done painting for the owners of this home several times over the years. On this most recent occasion it was to do a major change. They wanted to brighten up the rooms and shift away from having multiple colours. To give the home a more cohesive feel they choose a light grey to use throughout. To compliment the walls we painted the trim work and doors in a warm white.
The living room and dining room went through the most dramatic change from dark chocolate to the new light grey colour. Taupe, green and yellow were some of the other existing colours in the rest of the house. Everything was repainted in light grey.
The only room that wasn’t painted in the light grey was one of the bedrooms. It was changed from vibrant green and blue to a soft lilac colour.
Repainting Of A Classic 1950’s House
The owners of this classic home wanted to do a colour change prior to moving in. Earthy tones were chosen for the main living area, hallway, kitchen and bedrooms. They wanted different colours throughout the rooms, but wanted to make sure they complimented each other. Earthy tones of grey, brown and a green/grey were chosen. They all worked well together because of the common green undertone that each colour shares.
The living room had peach walls with an olive green colour in the coved portion of the ceiling. We re-painted the walls and cove in the same green/grey colour. This gives the room a more unified look and an illusion of greater wall height.
The owners wanted darker walls in the bedrooms. They went from yellow to a deep brown. The beautiful white coved ceilings look great with the new colour.
The kitchen was painted a mid-tone grey that worked well with the existing tile backsplash, countertops and stainless steel appliances.
