Another home sold with the help of clever re-design. This beautiful Deltona home went under contract within a few days of coming on the market. with 1400 sq ft living space it did not carry a large footprint. But that did not limit the way the house stood out from the crowd. Designer Helen Bonello-Strauss took cedar siding and created a fireplace accent wall. The same treatment with stained cedar boards went on the back wall of the kitchen counters. A nice way of warming things up and protecting a surface that otherwise would receive a lot of wear and tear if it had been left as drywall. The tile in the kitchen floor takes the color cue from the nice laminate wood floors in the living area. This helps to provide an uninterrupted visual flow and to combine the spaces. The wall colors are a mix of 5 different shades of gray for a sexy fresh look. This comfortable house is proof that it does not necessarily takes a mansion for a fabulous lifestyle. Good things can come in small packages. It is just the important thing to develop a vision for it and carry it through.
