hello and welcome back to Robeson design I’m Rebecca Robeson here in San Diego California and I’m taking you to my home today to show you the top 10 creative things I’ve done in my own home many of you have seen my home over the years especially during my walkthrough tours at Christmastime and you’ve seen this home all dolled up but what I’ve never showed you before is the before pictures what it looked like when we bought it 15 years ago we were looking for home and I knew when we found this one it was perfect why because it had 600 feet of office space in the front of the house and up until that time ropes and design was operating out of my garage Wow a lot of stuff before I even began my 10 list of things let me just say the obvious we removed all the wallpaper the popcorn on the ceilings we changed the textures on the walls which was like a cottage cheese that had been painted in a semi-gloss really nasty looking walls we read textured all of that and we added lighting throughout the house lighting as you know is one of my biggest things that I love we have a design session just on lighting and I do it here in my house and if you want to know more about that go to my website and check out the design sessions so I guess the best place to start in this house is at the entry your entry is your first impression and this entry drove me nuts it was a big rectangle it was dark and it had this low drop ceiling now I asked my contractor can’t we just start the vaulted ceiling that goes in this living room and bring it on down he said it would cost a tremendous amount of money and all of my air conditioning heating would have to be rerouted way too expensive I was working on a very tight budget so this is what I did and I think it’s a pretty creative idea I brought your eye up instead of feeling like this wall and this opening is dropping so low by adding this transom of molding and crown molding on top of it and painting it this off-white color it’s sure to just make sure I feel like it’s a higher ceiling you need to think about what’s the first thing you see when you walk in now in this new home we bought it was this wall behind me and you can see that the previous owner had a curio cabinet on it while it was nice for them it wasn’t as well as I wanted my home to be so what I did was I installed a 10-foot tall mirror I had them arched the top of it and then Oscar came and added eight inch thick casing all the way around it makes it look so handsome and it’s actually kind of an illusion you actually think there’s a room beyond there let me show you right now I have a table in front of this but if I was to move this table and you were to see this do you see how the floor runs right into the mirror and you literally feel like you could just walk right on into another room I wouldn’t recommend it because it can be painful but you could so look at this clever little idea I was able to add a little bit of natural light to this rather dingy entryway and bring some architectural interest I have loved collecting old vintage windows for years this one I got at a garage sale in my neighborhood so I asked my contractor to open up a hole in this wall and he did and look how great it looks it’s hanging from a couple of just cup hooks and some a little screws on top and it is really amazing it’s again in that nice dark rich stain it adds a lot and it kind of gives you a first impression peekaboo right on into the living room after years and years of designing absolutely beautiful staircases for my clients I knew that’s something I wanted to do in my home the staircase as it was was very straight and it was very had a pony wall that came up to about here it was just very typical tract home in Southern California I had lease create for me I designed it but he created this beautiful custom iron railing for me I had my contractor come in and instead of having the stairs come straight down and just empty out I had him swoop it around lower that pony wall giving me more space for this beautiful iron work and then a beautiful custom sort of free-flowing design as it came down around so watch this as I walk up and down my stairs instead of coming down and just going straight there I’m able to walk into my living room my entry and the rest of my home this is really really strange I don’t know if you’ve ever noticed this before but my wood floors downstairs are all this very very light wood well when we did the wood flooring upstairs I actually did it in the dark espresso very unusual I’ve never seen anyone mix their woods before and it was a little scary but I knew because I had all this dark wood in my furniture I thought maybe it could go and you know what it does it looks amazing my kitchen is not where I want it to be but thank God it’s not where it used to be oh my gosh when we first saw this house for the first time I was like that kitchen is seriously scary one of the things that had in it was this bank of cabinets right across here and what it did was it really defined the kitchen as a very separate space and it was not a part of the other room I wanted to have that flow through feel this is an idea that you can use in your home and I have done it many times I then of course dropped in to pendant lights but the other thing we did is take a look at what the the lighting and the ceiling was like in this kitchen it did not do anything for my complexion or my appetite so we took that out and we put in canned lights and then around the perimeter we kept the original shape someday I’d like to redo my kitchen new countertops new cabinets all that kind of stuff but for now just ghost coating those oak cabinets to be this dark espresso with the rest of my house it was a very inexpensive cheap fix and I think it made a nice difference and one last thing that I noticed and this is kind of a clever thing I think you can tell me what you think so the cabinet that used to be here went straight across once that was gone take a look I felt like it looked I was glad that this cabinet was gone but it looked a little heavy on one side and nothing on this side so the way I sort of camouflage that issue as I took a shutter that I bought at Home Depot I stained it espresso and I just literally lean up against there and to me that kind of balanced out the chocolate cabinets on that side and a little something chocolate on this side so it’s worked it’s been 15 years I think we’re due for a kitchen remodel what are you saying honey hmm he said yes do you ever look at a wall in your house and you see door after door after door and it’s kind of annoying well that’s how I felt in what was the family room for the previous owners in here there was a door that went underneath the staircase a door to the powder room and a door to the laundry room the way that I fixed it is really inexpensive and it’s a great way to do it to kind of make a door go away so over here I actually took the door off to the laundry room and cased it all the way around over here we use the same casein and put a beautiful solid core door right here in the bathroom so now no door door and that one I needed because it’s under my staircase but you know what I did let me show you we actually textured it the same thing as the wall we took the casement off of it and the door handle it just has a little button here now do you know what this is this is a touch latch right on into my very dirty closet but anyway the concept is cool you do see the little line around here but it doesn’t give you the impression of yet another door now if you’re gonna do this you really want to carry off the illusion you’ll notice on the floor I put in my baseboards they go actually across the door so the door that opens has baseboard and you’re gonna need to do this you actually have to notch out at an angle from this baseboard to this baseboard because when this opens dad has to be able to open completely and not run into the baseboard just little things you learn as you do this kind of crazy stuff take a look at the before picture of this wall this was a family room and the television used to sit over here you know why the television didn’t sit against the wall because of this thing this Hurst that for some reason some Builder thought would be a great idea to bring it all the way across well you know what he did you just cut off I don’t know 1820 inches of the room where nothing could go back against that wall I decided I was gonna make this my dining room and I wanted this to be a great focal point wall so I bought two vintage chests of drawers to use this buffets and what I did was I wanted them to go back against the wall well how can you do that with that’s in the way I’ll tell you how I cut the back legs off of both of these vintage pieces I mean and they weren’t that expensive and it was a pretty smart and clever idea leave me a comment below and let me know if you think that’s clever I do here’s the other thing this fireplace I mean would I have loved to have done a paneled built-in and all this kind of stuff yes I would I made the best of what I had and that’s the key I want you guys to think outside the box and think okay I can’t change this but what can I do to work around it that’s what I did here this is a simple plant on mantel that I got from Pottery Barn years ago but you don’t get that feeling do you you know why having the wood on either side it sort of gives you that impression of this grand fireplace trust me this is no grand fireplace but it looks pretty good didn’t it oh and just in case you want to know for those of you who are concerned about the legs on my buffets they’re taped underneath to each buffet so if I ever moved and wanted to use these again all I have to do is draw drill pegs peg holes in them and reattach them easy-peasy you’ll often find a linen cabinet in the hallway somewhere well in this home upstairs at the top and you could still see it from downstairs was your typical linen cabinet lower cabinets upper cabinets boring so eventually I designed a beautiful linen cabinet I call it my Martha Stewart cabinet because it reminds me of something she would do it brings in all of my casements my crown molding big base molding and it’s in this nice yummy kind of buttery cream color but with the glass doors what it did was it made me accountable to keep my linens clean and I made a big switch to all white in the master bedroom on this far wall which this was a long room I actually had some space so here’s what I did I added an entire wardrobe system to this back wall and I completely covered it in mirror now let me show you these these doors right here this all IKEA this is my jewelry storage and I am gonna do a video just on jewelry and how I store my jewelry that’s coming but every one of these opens the doors themselves come this way you can get them with mirrors on them but the drawers not so much IKEA does not make them that way so I had a mirror company come and cover the mirrors and then I had them fill in the empty space that the IKEA wardrobe system didn’t cover we love it it gave my husband a place to put his clothes because you know that walk-in closet over there big enough for both of us so this answered our issue for where we gonna hang our clothes and it really added a lot to this room hey have you guys heard the next design session is on window treatments that’s right and you know what the one after that is on spring cleaning so I thought I’d get up here and kind of kill two birds with one stone and you know what not a moment too soon here’s one more clever quick and cheap idea for you in a kitchen if you wish you had an island but you don’t have one I actually put this one in it’s just a movable little French I don’t know I got it from Ballard company for a couple of hundred dollars but it’s just the right size it gives me something in the middle of this kitchen gives me a place to put stuff to chop things if I was to ever chop and to light some candles that’s kind of nice don’t you think I hope you’ve enjoyed kind of taking a look at my house from where it was to where it is today getting the top 10 things that I think are pretty cool and fun and a lot of them are obtainable at any budget what was your favorite and what do you think maybe you could use in your home after all that’s what this is all about just remember this has taken me 15 years and I still haven’t arrived but I hope the one thing you take away from all of this is it’s a process it’s a journey and it’s fun getting there I wish you guys all the luck in the world and your on decorating your own home remember the design sessions that’s where I teach you everything I know
