Centerport Living Room Renovation

On this feature project, Artistic Contracting was contracted by the very talented interior designer Jeanne Campana to bring her vision for this living room renovation to reality. Rarely do contractors get to see the fully completed and furnished work, however the story about this space was highlighted on Houzz and in the By Design section of Westchester Magazine.

Living Room Renovation Highlights:

BEFORE: The couple enjoyed displaying family photos on the walls and tabletops in their previous living room, but felt the mustard yellow walls and mix of hand-me-downs came off as disjointed. The room also suffered from a lack of architectural interest, which made it feel flat. “The house before was literally like a box,” Kara recalls. “There were no architectural details at all. …

AFTER: To highlight the fireplace, which serves as the focal point, Campana added built-in shelves, which give the family the chance to stylishly display framed family photos, favorite books and special travel mementos. Classic woodwork, including molding around the doorways and decorative molding on the ceiling, introduced architectural interest and character. “It gives depth to the room, and that’s what we were trying to do — to not make the room feel so flat,” Campana says.
