Makeover: Small Home Gets An Open-Concept Facelift

  • Published on:  12/10/2020
  • Designer Emilia Wisniewski of Studio 1Nine1 proves just how pretty and practical a family home can be! With two young girls, the homeowners needed a space that could do it all, so the designer knocked down walls to create an open-concept main floor. See how the front hallway was jazzed up with vinyl wallpaper from Missoni (it's super easy to clean) and the front of the house was transformed into a musical room for the children. You'll love the white kitchen, complete with a built-in banquette, navy blue island and tons of natural light. Plus, Emilia shares her tips for prioritizing storage during a reno.
