The household was whole of carpeting, including in the dining area, so a person of the initial issues the Picheas did was switch the aged carpet with hardwood. With the assist of Kristen Pawlak from KP Patterns/Decorating Den Interiors, they also labored to make a more neutral palette in the course of.

And then what you get into painting all the trim, you are speaking big funds. So, we painted (single rooms) of (the dwelling at a time), like the kitchen. I moved into more of a soft antique-white trim, but the rest of the house (is) kind of almondy … It had really moldings it had superior bones. It just essential a little update.”
