new digs for mad max
the family dog does not like change. but he warmed up immediately to the bright new paint and sophisticated but laid back furnishings in this first level redesign. max already has found the perfect spot for 'guarding' the house -- the funky chartreuse velvet chair. max's 'parents' chill on the chaise sectional sofa covered in pet and kid friendly microsuede and dine at their sophisticated metallic table flanked by cabinets with pops of color. we kept the project affordable and within budget by painting the existing IKEA kitchen cabinets in two toned white and gray. this meant we could install all new stainless steel appliances, porcelain tile floors, and quartz counter tops with matching quartz backsplashes which run all the way up the walls.
