Before and After
To Inspire and Imagine
The Power of Transformation
There’s nothing like a good before-and-after to captivate our attention and inspire our imaginations. The growing number of television shows, website, and magazine articles built around the before-and-after is testimony to the fact. Even if we don’t like the resulting “after” we love watching and seeing the process of transformation. We’re inspired by the change, be it great or small, of something that might once have been terribly ugly, outdated, or just not to our personal style, and seeing what can happen with a new shade of paint, knocking out a wall, cleaning up the old brick around an unused fireplace and adding a door that turns an ugly black box into a work of art. It’s fun to watch as homeowners find that inspiration and vision and seeing it come to fruition in a few days, or ten simple, economical steps, or even the torment of a long-term project. We keep notebooks filled with ideas, elements, products, colors, and styles of things we like and that speak to us on some level we might not be able explain, but that are a reflection of our unique visions and tastes; things we’d like to have or do to in the constant quest to realize our aesthetic tastes in our homes. Our homes, after all, are not only the places where we dwell, but the spaces where we gather and connect with friends and family, raise our children, and create personal histories.
We’re lucky to have been part of more than a few good remodels over the years and we’re always thankful when our clients send us their before-and-after photos. We hope you enjoy looking at these projects as much as we’ve enjoyed being a part of making them happen. And, we’re always looking for more before-and-after’s to add to Portfolio. If you’d like to share photos of your rooms transformed with the help of an Ironhaus fireplace, door, screen, lighting or other product send them our way!
