Belfast Remodel – Before & After
Being an admitted “houseaholic,” my true passion is real estate. I studied interior design at The Inchbald School of Art and Design in London and with the ability to see the next big trends, I have bought, renovated and sold houses on both U.S. coasts.
Below is a home I purchased, renovated and re-designed on Belfast. Check out the before and after photos:
The front exterior looks primarily the same as before except I replaced the glass front door with a wooden door painted black and I put on an entire new roof.
In the living room, I added the black chevron tile around the fireplace (which matches the new chevron wood floor) and painted the wooden beam white.
Another view of the living room, where you can see the new wood floors in the chevron pattern and the black tile around the fireplace.
This is a view of the living room to the backyard. The big change here was the removal of the wall on the right hand side that separated the living room from the dining area. I also added these light fixtures from XXX.
I went for drama for the bar and office. I painted the walls Hague Blue (from Farrow and Ball). I also replaced the bar counter with XXX and added a mirror over the entire wall above the bar.
More drama in the den. The Hague Blue paint continues into the den. And the custom window treatments with fabric from XXX really tie the room together.
While not too visible in this shot, I retiled and resurfaced the pool. Also if you look to the right-hand side of each photo, you’ll notice I removed the spiral staircase.
