This house is probably one of my favorites to date! It’s located steps away from beautiful Patterson Park near Canton in Baltimore city. We put a two story roof deck on for maximum city views and hosting party pleasure. And there’s 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a beautiful kitchen with lots of storage and a large island! Plus it’s a historical renovation so we kept all the beautiful window transoms, some original tile and original hardware floors. Everything new we added to have the same period feel of this 100+ year old row-home. It’s a gorgeous transformation and I just love seeing my visions come to fruition. Someone is going to be really happy in this home for hopefully a long time! Here’s some before and after pictures:
Exterior: Left is before picture, right is after custom door, tore down the old bay window siding and installed custom picture frame molding, replaced light, house numbers and mailbox.
Kitchen: All new cabinets, contrast island painted in Benjamin Moore Hale Navy, brass hardware, globe pendants, chevron back-splash, quartz countertops, refinished hardwood floors and new appliances.
Bathrooms (2 of 3 shown): The upstairs had one very stinky, very dated bathroom, we tore it out and in it’s “place” put in two beautiful bathrooms so that the master bedroom would have an en suite and then there would be a bathroom in the hallway too.
Living room/dining room: We refinished hardwood floors, took out awful drop ceiling and installed gorgeous tray ceilings, exposed and cleaned up brick and painted Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray.
Master Bedroom: Insane transformation – pictures show it all!
Guys, these transformations never get old! Anyone else love a good before and after story? I’m sharing our latest project, a whole house renovation in the Patterson Park neighborhood of Baltimore city. What this house lacks in square footage it has in charm! The exterior is gorgeous – we had to remove the awnings, take down the form stone, the brick underneath was repointed, we replaced the windows, replaced the door and painted it Bold Blue by Benjamin Moore, updated the light fixture and repaired the corbel. See before and after pics:
The rest of the house was transformed as well, hardwood floors refinished, more brick repointed, new stairs and railings, drywall, light fixtures, new interior windows, new kitchen, granite counters, new bathrooms (3 full baths). Check out all the before and after pics here side by side so you get a real feel for the transformed spaces:
Since this wasn’t a large house I used the same paint color through-out, Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams and trim is White Dove by Benjamin Moore. Floor stain is dark walnut. Here are some bathroom pictures:
Ready to tackle the next project, thanks for stopping by!
Here’s a recent renovation property we flipped, it’s a 3 bedroom, 2 bath rowhome in Baltimore. Originally only a 2 bedroom and one bath home so we added a full bath as well as a third bathroom. This house had gorgeous pine floors that just needed to be touched up and refinished, it also had pretty exposed beams that we decided to leave exposed. Keeping with those finishes, we decided to do a decorative tin ceiling in the kitchen which I think turned out gorgeous and we used a tile flooring in the kitchen that looks like rustic wood. Overall, the home has a modern-industrial feel and I just love the way it turned out.

Thanks for reading, our next flip should be completed by the first of the year!
Our most recent completed row home flip in charming Greektown. Hardwood floors through-out, finished basement, 3 bedrooms, 1 and a half baths and a gorgeous kitchen! Here’s a little of what it looked like “before” the renovation:

Another completed project! This row home has so much natural light and is quite spacious considering some Baltimore row homes can be narrow. I love how open this house is and how large the kitchen is! The room off the back is an added bonus for a mudroom. Here’s some of the before and after photos on this gorgeous row home.
What do home renovation enthusiasts do when there aren’t any projects left to do on their home? Well I guess we could move, but we’re just not ready for that yet so we took the plunge and started a company! The official company website is klrdevelopment.com however I figured what better place to show the actual rehab before and after photos than my blog. So without further delay, here’s a gorgeous home that recently sold in less than a week and took about a year to complete. I am equally obsessed with this kitchen – the size, the island, all those cabinets! – as well as the master bath – the shiplap, that huge walk in shower, the tiles, the vanity space! I also staged the home to define the spaces, given it’s such an open floor plan.
It is a large, rancher-style home, very dated and very dark. The rooms were small and closed off and our plan was to open it up and lighten it up to really showcase how big this house is and how much beautiful potential it has. So here you go, in no certain order because there are so many before pictures…
And here’s how it looks now completed and beautiful…
Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore
Kitchen with Gray Owl
For paint colors we used Benjamin Moore gray owl and white dove. The lighting all came from Wayfair, and we used quartz in the kitchen for countertops. Now on to the next project!
For now our home is complete, there’s always something to redecorate and we’re thinking of moving the boys into the same room shortly so I’ll have fun with that but for now I think it’s a wrap on renovation projects. I thought I’d conclude with a photo gallery of where we are now, almost 3 years into this house.
Now, we can focus on renovation projects outside of our personal home…stay tuned!
When trying to figure out the new lay-out for our kitchen, we didn’t have many options. The old kitchen was small and only had a few cabinets, a fridge & a stove so we knew we’d need to expand. The kitchen is situated between our dining room, our living room, and at the end of our entrance hallway. We have a door that leads from our kitchen onto a covered porch…I dream of that porch becoming a screened in porch one day so I didn’t want to knock out that back wall and lose any of the porch. If we knocked out any of the wall that the kitchen shares with the living room, we’d lose the main long wall that our chaise sofa is currently up against and we wouldn’t have been able to fit that in there. Then the wall that’s being shared with the dining room is load-bearing. We also have a door, and two windows to contest with along with a radiator that we couldn’t cover up. So we settled on a galley style kitchen that’s a little on the small side but we love it!
Gavin removed the doorway between the hallway and the kitchen (there was a door that closed there and made the kitchen feel very small), he also opened up the the entrance between the kitchen and the dining room so the kitchen felt more open and spacious. We went with white cabinets so that it wouldn’t feel crowded in there (and because I love them!) and decided to use Carrara marble for our countertops. We added recessed lighting and crown molding as well. The faucet we choose has an antique feel and works well with the farmhouse sink. Stainless steel appliances and glass tile backsplash with some marble accenting completes the look. Since the rest of the house has wood floors that we were refinishing anyway, we decided to run new wood floors in the kitchen too and have them all stained to match. The color we choose for the kitchen is Benjamin Moore Woodlawn Blue.
