Coastal Craftsman by Jessica Miller

One of my latest projects Archway Properties just hit the market! This 2 story craftsman is in the Historic Kingman Place just off University. The main floor boasts a knocked out wall in the kitchen to expand the space into the dining room. Exposed brick, quartz counters, with an extremely functional peninsula, new paint lighting and flooring throughout. Check out the before and afters. Couldn’t be more pleased about how this property turned out.

She's Crafty by Jessica Miller

My latest rehab with Archway Development officially hit the market on Thursday! Good news, bad news though— it sold in under 24 hours. I immediately fell in love with with the charm and layout with this arts & crafts bungalow. I knew from the moment I walked in what I wanted to do design- wise. The character, built-ins, layout and Bertha <see woman on mantle> instantly connected.

Johnston Overhaul by Jessica Miller

I was contacted back in April by a homeowner who lived out of state but had a property in Johnston, Iowa.  The homeowner worked hard to get the home market ready were talking - gallons of paint, lighting updates, stuff removal and a deep cleaning. I was contracted to stage the living room, kitchen, entry, dining room and master suite.  I also advised on paint colors, lighting updates and kept her updated on the progress of the home over the 90 days it took to get the home market ready.

4327 Greenwood Drive by Jessica Miller

The renovation of this super-sized, South of Grand Tudor home began last Fall . This home has only had one other owner since 1927 which is super impressive nowadays. Fortunately, she had great bones but needed some major modernizing love.  Five months later, we are pleased to put her back on the Des Moines' market. 

As you will notice in the picture below the kitchen was the biggest overhaul.  Unfortunately, I was unable to get a before demo photo but let's just say it was very sad and drab. We added a breakfast bar/serving area to bring in more natural light. Installed glass cabinetry and picked clean, bright finishes to make the previously closed and dark space feel more spacious and bright.

The rest of the house just needed gallons of paint, new flooring, lighting and a bunch of other stuff that was too boring/frustrating to document.  This Tudor was a total labor of love and I can't wait til a lucky family gets to make it their home.
