But the old and new parts of the house didn’t re­ally con­nect vis­ually, says For­man, of Bun­ga­low Home & De­sign of Del­ray Beach.

“It felt like two houses in one. There were three dif­fer­ent floor­ings: traver­tine in the great room, ma­hogany floors in the orig­i­nal bed­rooms and dark wood ceil­ings through­out, as com­pared to new gray-washed French oak floors in the ad­di­tion and ren­o­vated ar­eas.

“Also, the bath­rooms hadn’t been touched since it was built in 2001. So, while some of the house was new, it still needed up­dat­ing.”

When For­man came aboard, struc­turally, she only needed to re­con­fig­ure the mas­ter bed­room and re­pur­pose the liv­ing ar­eas. All of the other changes were cos­metic.

“The house al­ready had good bones and ceil­ing heights, and good vol­ume made a big dif­fer­ence,” she says, not­ing the home’s pitched ceil­ings.

The project was com­pleted this sum­mer with the help of Con­rad Con­struc­tion in Lake Worth. And today, the color pal­ette is white with grays and neu­trals.

“It’s bright, white, and feels very Palm Beachy, yet it’s com­fort­able and re­laxed,” For­man said

In the mas­ter bed­room, the ceil­ings are pitched, and the dress­ing room fea­tures built-in cab­i­netry.
