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
