Before and After: Midway Hollow Gem!

One of my favorite parts of my job is helping my friends find their perfect home, as well as making new friends in the process.  So, I was thrilled when my great friends Becky and Kyle Bowen called and said they were moving back to Dallas and wanted me to help them find their first Texas home!

After a few months of searching, we finally found "the one".  When we walked into this house they said that they had a vision for it, and it sure was a spectacular one!  Here are some before and after photos...

This is what they did to the kitchen...

This is what it looked like before....

Redoing the shelves, swapping the brick fireplace mantle our for carrera marble, and opening up the wall between the living and dinning area made this living area spacious and so special.  I also love how they made a special spot for the flat screen.

The dining space before...


They redid the hardwood floors throughout the house which made a big difference in their master bedroom - a fresh coat of paint and some pretty new furniture also changed the whole feel of this room. 
 Here is what it looked like in the MLS Photos...

They completely redid this bathroom and turned it into an animating place to get ready for the day.  oops, thats my reflection in the mirror standing in the shower to get this photo...

I love the new floor they put into the hallway bathroom...

When they purchased the house the laundry room was located in the garage.  They found room to move the laundry room inside the house to a hallway closet by relocating the water heater to the attic...
 adding chandelier made this outdoor dinning space fun!
 cleaning up the landscaping by the pool also made vast improvements...

Thanks to the Bowen family for letting me include them and their beautiful new home on this post!

Becky and Kyle had wonderful ideas for making this home exactly the way they wanted it.  They give a great deal of credit to Penny Sanders, owner of Sanders Studio, for helping to carry the plan out.
