Home of a Thousand Transformations in Edgewood

Real estate agent adds bold dashes of color to her Edgewood home


Adding color is one of her favorite parts of decorating, which is obvious during a stroll through the home. She expertly chooses colors that are unusual and yet work together beautifully. Coral and green dominate the family room and the adjacent sun room.

In the living room, bright coral covers one wall, light green graces the next wall and a brighter green appears on the facing wall.

To marry the three shades, Stephanie painted vertical stripes of the two bright hues on the middle wall. With love seats that match the scheme perfectly and accents of each shade strewn about the room, the result is a cheery, comfortable space.

French doors open to the sun room, which shares the same palate. The matching green of a high-back chair and armoire, both inherited from her grandmother, was the original inspiration for the green tint.

Kevin had the brilliant idea of painting the recesses to the skylights coral – which has the effect of colored lights emanating from the ceiling.

Both of these rooms were added onto the house 16 years ago – along with a second-floor master bedroom and bathroom.

During the renovation, Kevin and Stephanie completed all the work except for framing, plumbing and wiring. With a background in construction work (before his current job with UPS), Kevin completed the tasks as an expert.

His first-ever tiling job was the floor of the sun room. Not one to start small, he even included a patterned floor with different colored tiles. Later, when it was time to refurbish a bathroom, he used his newly-developed skills to tile both the floor and the shower.

In the original rooms of the house, green is still a staple, but coral has been replaced with red. Another bold choice, this small distinction makes a huge difference in the feel of the rooms.
