128 S Potomac

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.

Thanks for reading – until the new project 🙂

Paint

I’ve had a few questions lately on my paint color choices so I thought I’d highlight some of my favorite colors for you.  Generally, I lean towards Benjamin Moore because they have such an extensive selection and I happen to love all the blue/green/grays (in a way that makes it harder to just choose one).  These colors are considered the new neutral because they work so well with all tones of wood and many fabrics and accent colors.  So here you go, some of my favorites:

Coventry Gray HC-169

I love this deep shade of gray, for a house that has a lot of light it looks rich and gorgeous without being too dark.  If you have less light, I would go up a shade to Stonington Gray Gray HC-170.

Woodlawn Blue HC-147

This blue/green color is a beautiful option for a bathroom or bedroom.  Pairs nicely with tans or grays.

Edgecomb Gray

This warm shade I would say is more tan than gray, but is a great neutral color.

Gray Owl OC-52

I really like this gray, there is a little tan undertone to it so it can be paired with warm or cool finishes. It’s a perfect choice to use with a kitchen that has stainless steel appliances.

Wedgewood Gray HC-146

This is one of my personal favorites and is used in 2 rooms in my home, it’s a gorgeous, rich combination of blue, gray and green.  It’s part of Benjamin Moore’s historical collection so I like to think of it as a classic color, always in style.

Smoke 2122-40

Another beautiful paint color I love and have in my home is Smoke, it’s a perfect blend of blue and gray, there is also a lighter version Pale Smoke 1584 which is a great option for any room in your home.

Happy painting!  Painting a room can change it dramatically and it’s an easy and affordable option.
