LCI: Residential Project (First Floor)

by Laura Casey Interiors on July 29, 2014

We completed this project last year, and I am very excited to finally show it to you all. This home went through a complete renovation, with the better part of the structure going down to the studs. The builder was able to preserve the front facade and framework of the front rooms, which was very important to the homeowners as the property was originally built in the 1920′s and has been in their family for many years.

The floor plan was re-worked and many new rooms were added.

The kitchen is part of the new addition at the back of the house.

Our client wanted the space to feel bright and open, with plenty of counter space and storage.

The built-in banquette in the kitchen provides plenty of seating for casual family dining.

LCI & a TV spot

by Laura Casey Interiors on July 21, 2014

A big thanks to the team at the new show TINY HOUSE NATION on the FYI network for featuring my murphy bed project which aired last week as a solution for living in a tiny house.

Click here to see the show.

A few years ago I had a murphy bed built into a clients home. A sofa and small seating area that transitions into

an extra guest room.

LCI: Before & After

by Laura Casey Interiors on June 6, 2014

I’m back! Sorry for the lack of posts lately. We had a very busy spring that is turning into an even busier summer. I’ll give you a peek at some things I’m working on next week.

Last fall we started on a great before and after project. She’s been a great client for many years, so I am really happy I could transform her rooms. She has FIVE (yes supermom status) kids and she is really happy their living spaces have increased and improved!

We decided to update and lighten the feel of their family room, play room, and kitchen.

Her kids are between ages 10-18 and she said it has really made a difference in their lives. This is why I love what I do!

I hope you like it too. Happy weekend!

LCI: Charlotte Observer Home & Garden

by Laura Casey Interiors on March 29, 2014

A big thanks to Jodi Helmer and The Charlotte Observer for interviewing me for an article on painted furniture and showing my work in the Home & Garden Section today.

These chairs were unfinished when we bought them and then had them painted Benjamin Moore Hale Navy.

I thought navy was a great color to incorporate into the kitchen.

My Kitchen: Before & After and Amanda Talley

by Laura Casey Interiors on March 25, 2014

I had about a month between closing and moving in to do some work in our new house. One of the rooms I gave an uplift to was the kitchen. It initially felt quite dark with mustard yellow cabinets, brown granite countertops and not enough recessed lighting. The lighting in this “before” picture is very enhanced for the real estate listing…

In person it felt more like this:

The breakfast area (also with enhanced lighting) and adjacent family room had brown wallpaper, which didn’t last long.

At this point the brown wallpaper was gone and the trim was about to get painted.

Prior to painting I added recessed lighting which helped tremendously.

I switched the countertops to a dark green granite called Uba Tuba which I love and installed a simple white subway tile on the backsplash. All the cabinets and trim are now white with brushed nickel hardware and the walls are Benjamin Moore Classic Grey. The fabric on the roman shade is from Kravet. I love that the cabinets go all the way to the ceiling! I purposefully did not add a fixture over the island as I like being able to have an uninterrupted view across the kitchen.

We added a super fun piece of art by my friend and New Orleans-based artist Amanda Talley. My husband is from Louisiana as well so he was happy to have some of Amanda’s work in our home.

I love the colors and organic shapes she uses in her paintings. See more of her work here.

I hope you like the changes I made in my new kitchen. It’s so nice to have a happy and bright space to cook in!
