Have you ever looked around your house and had the thought, “One day I’d like to make this place look more ‘like me?’”

Our homeowners in the Bouldin Creek area recently contacted us and said that they wanted to do just that. They wanted to create an entirely different (and cohesive!) style in their home on a much grander scale. A renovation from top-to-bottom, inside-out.

Our clients knew that they wanted their home to be redone quickly after they moved to Austin so that they could live in their dream home and enjoy all that Austin has to offer. They did not want to be bogged down by doing things themselves or to be disrupted by different iterations of remodels throughout the years. Finally, our homeowners really wanted one person as the general contractor to manage the work and problem solve in order to complete the work on their behalf. They had zero interest in finding contractors for each individual task or project.  Skelly Home Renovations jumped in as the general contractor our clients were looking for, and together, we began construction of the designer’s plans!

Several surfaces were updated & refreshed in this house, including but not limited to:

  • All new paint

  • Custom floor to ceiling burlwood piece in which the TV hangs

  • Upgraded modern kitchen hardware

  • New bathroom fixtures and countertops

  • New interior and exterior light fixtures

  • New laundry cabinets

  • Bathroom cabinetry lightly sanded and re-stained for a natural wood color

  • New tile in the master bath & laundry

  • Exterior paint

  • Bold wallpaper

Take a peek into the amazing transformation of this property!

 Up first were the bedrooms: fresh paint, a wallpaper accent wall, new bedding and lighting, and layered textures & patterns all helped to create warm, relaxing bedroom spaces.

 A fresh coat of paint, geometrically patterned wallpaper and new lighting transform the new guest bedroom (above) and corner spaces (below).

 New wood flooring was installed throughout the main kitchen and family room. To create warmth and a focal point to the family room, we installed burlwood pieces behind the mounted TV and a rich patterned wallpaper on the sides. Fun lighting, new flooring, fresh paint and much more work together to transform the heart of this home.

In the end, our clients now have a place to call home that truly looks and feels like them.

According to our clients, their favorite part of the renovation is, “Our entire house! We're living in our dream home! Thanks to Skelly for perfectly executing our designer's plan. We always say that our house is WAY cooler than we are! It's incredibly hard to pick one thing that's our favorite, but it has to be our main room with burlwood center piece that's complete with bold wallpaper and pendant lighting. It's incredibly spectacular and completely unique to our home. We are so lucky to get to enjoy it every day!”
