Our friends at Everitt and Schilling recently finished up a remodel of a 1942 bungalow and were nice enough to come let us take a peek at the place! This house sits in a prime location in Fort Collins, biking distance to Old Town and the breweries, and actually has a garage attached! A real find given the year it was built. Are you ready to go inside? Seriously my toes are frozen just looking at that snow!

The house sits on a corner lot and the front of it just looks so inviting. I love the curved use of the lot along with the metal (I believe copper?) decorative overhang above the front door. And those trees- symmetry that brings a smile to my face!

One of the main areas that got a complete overhaul in this house was the kitchen:

Cabinets were sourced from Genesis Innovations and bring a slightly modern yet warm feel to the kitchen. The white countertops are quartz in the color Antique White.

The floors in the kitchen and eat in area are a gray porcelain tile (Capco Geotile) which had a look similar to wood but were much smoother than some of the faux wood tiles I’ve seen before. The floors were really quite lovely.

The eat in area has a super fun pendant above the table was a find from Etsy at this store. It is made from recycled papers and brings some texture to the room. Overall I think the kitchen looks super clean and yet not too modern. The light fixtures in the kitchen still bring that retro touch to help keep the space tied into the 1940′s.

The bathrooms all got updated in the house and here is the master bath. Mainly white tiles were used throughout the space with green glass tile accents. Pair that with gray walls and the space felt really fresh.

And don’t think I’d forget to point out my favorite part of this remodel- the wood tiles!

For both the accent wall in the living room and the backsplash in the kitchen, E & S whitewashed Parkwood tiles were used to bring visual interest to the spaces. Of course these are two of my favorite ways to use these wood tiles in a house, remember my wood tile accent wall and backsplashes (here and here)?

    The outside is so charming and European! But the kitchen is really what’s to die for.
