We moved into a new home in Lake Geneva and worked with Brick and Mortar on transforming it. What a fantastic experience it has been. They not only updated the look of our new place but they succeeded in combining a lot of our old, sentimental pieces with wonderful modern accessories and furniture – bringing true color into our house. We adore our new place and are thrilled we used Brick and Mortar and stayed local.

Before & After

A blank canvas can be overwhelming for a new homeowner. You probably have so many ideas running through your head…what color should I paint the walls? can I open up this space by removing any walls? love the fireplace, but can it be updated? how do I make this my dream kitchen?

A blank canvas is designer’s dream and we are here to help. First, it’s important that we find out what the client truly wants in their home. In the end, we’re helping you create a space where you retreat to everyday, so your wants and concerns are our priority. After all, this is your home!

We had so much fun with this project. We were able to make an open floor plan from the kitchen to the living room, this helped the space feel bigger. The updated kitchen and fireplace lighten the space give it a more finished and polished look. The end result was a casual bright and light home.
