Interior Design — Classic To Contemporary Makeover

3369 ratings | 222505 views
A traditional family home is brought into the 21st century by designers Ashley Tracey and Laura McLellan of The Design Co. See how they transformed the dated home into a contemporary space with a white palette. Ashley and Laura used paint and oversized mirrors to make the rooms feel larger and brighter. In the living room, expansive windows allow natural light to fill the space. A baby grand piano gives the room a point of focus and bright artwork adds color. In the dining room, soft grey walls let the contemporary dining table and chairs steal the show, while a large oversized mirror expands the space. Wood walls in the office are a handsome contrast to the rest of the home. Ashley and Laura knocked down a dividing wall to create a modern open-concept kitchen that flows into the cozy family room.

I mean I'd love for my house to be mostly white but cleaning it would be a nightmare

I'm not really into lesbian chic, so I would've taken one look at these two and said "Thanks, but no thanks." I've seen operating theaters with more charm.

Love the lighting on the kitchen isle!! where can i buy it?
Jess jms (6 months ago)
I love that I love having a neutral canvas of a house like that and then you can literally change the artwork and colour scheme of accessories as you get bored. For example you could change the greens to pinks. Love the way it all flows together very pleasing. Love the huge kitchen island. Everything is to scale properly.

Basically just paint your whole house white.

Too many mirrors, definitely would feel uncomfortable

I can't embrace this idea of someone, anyone, selecting art for a home when art should have an emotional connection with the owner.  Art must speak for itself and not ...picked out... to match the décor.

Everything is beautiful, my only question is why do all interior designers use the Tom Ford book in all their designs, just not original! Why not use books that a person would find interesting to pick up and thumb through.

Thank you for not painting the office's wood paneling.

That office is everything. Although the intention was to keep it masculine I found it to be very pleasing for both sides :)

The kitchen is nice but I hate the all white walls (reminds me of a hospital) - a little bit of color like gray or cream would have been nicer.
D Ishappywithlife (10 months ago)
I hope you designers know this contemporary trend is comparable to 1980's pastel. The trend may hold for another few years until folks become bored of the stark white rooms, and you know they will.I actually saw one designer on House & Home and he said the "all white kitchens" are becoming "the same" Hum drum style, and in his kitchen he did a really cool blue/grey to do something different. The one thing that is good about contemporary, you can switch out the beige boring pillows and add really nice accent pieces that bring lots of colour. I've also been watching some up-and-coming designers. I love designers who really think outside the box, and outside of the current trends. Unfortunately I see the style so much that it doesn't surprise me.

D Ishappywithlife well to be fair, contemporary by definition is what's in style today. the modern and more 1980s look is what the ppl want and when if falls out of style the next big thing will also be contemporary. this is almost definitely my style because I like the modern look though I agree with there being enough white. I'd love that blue/grey kitchen you mentioned. who knows maybe this year or the next the more traditional styles might circle back around lol.

Love the kitchen and how it connected the living room together and increased the home's flow and light. I don't understand all of these negative comments since I feel like the designers did a fantastic job!
I like classic ,I like a mix of design !

I do like the white walls but the overall design is too sterile. The white cabinets on the white walls and white counter-top are horrific. I wish that the cabinets were darker to contrast with the white. Also, have more color on furniture and a few rustic pieces to add interest. The overall vibe has a hospital feel.
MusicaErika (1 year ago)
I absolutely love it
Deborah Soulier (1 year ago)
Congrats on a great transformation! I think the most important point is whether the clients love it since they are the ones living in it. As a designer myself, from the design brief to the final reveal, there is collaboration in between with the client, through mood boards, conversation, tear sheets or digital images so they do know what the end result will be. Based on these wonderful designers comments their clients were very pleased with the final result!

Went from dark and classic to white and classic. It’s pretty. But not contemporary. White does not mean contemporary.

Love that you kept the office wood as is.  Overall, love everything.  I do find most guests don't feel comfortable having a huge mirror in the dinning room.
Emeline Emeline (1 year ago)
Love everything but the living room sofa. They really should have taken that area up a notch since the breakfast area had those lovely black chairs as an accent - Either way, gorgeous home! These ladies did a very good job
Anne N (1 year ago)
I like the remodel, except 2 points. The art in the dining room had 2 huge lamps obstructing the enjoyment of the painting, art lovers want to experience the art. Also, not everyone wants so many mirrors. In my experience, it can make guests uncomfortable to have a direct, stark view of themselves (surprise, your lipstick is smeared, or your pants are wicked wrinkled!). I want my guests to feel comfortable, not concerned about their appearance. A smoky mirror is kinder, more gentle - if needed in public spaces. Great art provides a conversation, a mirror invites self critique.

Hello designers , love this temporary style with traditional touches. Do you example for activity room where we have to combine the elliptical and office table ? Thank you
Sincerely Eccentric (1 year ago)
So you went from beige to everything white? Such creativity 😑
AnaPap (5 months ago)
LOL. I agree. The home has beautiful bone; it'd be hard to make it look ugly.  But the all white is so boring (and I love white)!  I prefer designers who do stuff that I'd never think to do.

Ms Rana, didn't say it wasn't those things. They had to point out that everything was beige like it was boring and then they turn around and paint it white. I would just like to see some color in the majority of these videos.

Very agreeable decision to keep the office in tact. Overall, the project looks great. I do wonder why the revamped kitchen had its crown moulding profile changed from the rest of the floor. The continuity of the same would have lessened the "remodel" appearance.

White...but then that's the answer to any question you could pose about this house.

Andy (4 months ago)
Me too! Dark colors and furniture that's all a dark color really bother me because it looks so dingy to me. I love feeling like everything's bright and open, especially when the windows aren't super large, which white and light neutral colors tend to do! I love adding pops of color with accents and decor, too.

Anna Rostagno if it is not your style you don't have to be rude. There are ways to express your style or liking without being so disrespectful to the people that likes it and works on it.
