Finding a forever home in Edgewood


“Horses are in my blood,” he said. “I wanted this painting to really make a statement when you walk in the front door.”

Choosing colors and décor was something of a family affair. With a sister who is a professional home decorator, he felt it best to include her in the decision making.

“I have to give a lot of credit to my sister,” he admitted. “Before I do anything final, I always run it by her. Our rule is: Before it comes into the house, you have to love it. We have spent a couple of hours together at Lowe's just picking out a color. It’s a lot of fun.”

While he does value her opinion, he does not bow to it. When he wanted to choose a shade of gray for the bedroom, she discouraged him. Sticking to his guns, he is very pleased with the result. The hue changes slightly with the light and the chosen accents.

Most recently finished is the kitchen. Although the entire room looks new, the cabinets were simply well-cared for by the previous owners and only needed new hardware to appear modern. Beautiful stainless steel appliances also came with the house.

To incorporate the stainless steel with the rest of the kitchen, Browning chose grays and light browns for the new countertop and tile. Lighter colors also keep the kitchen from appearing too dark.

The room that sold the house is the only one that has remained untouched. A family room that features walls of interesting cabinet space is where Browning spends most of his time. He has purposefully left this room for last to be sure he can take his time and do it right.

Now that he is close to his parents and almost finished renovating his house, Browning can relax, knowing that this is his forever home.

"I like to run and this is an absolutely beautiful neighborhood, especially in the spring and summer,” he said. “I’m so happy here.”
