Denver Tudor Reveal

We took a closed off, small, Tudor home and made it feel bright and open! 

Today, we are doing a photo reveal for our Denver Tudor Webisode. We worked with Benjamin Moore to completely revamp the look of a charming older home. I met our client Ashley and her husband in college when we were both studying communications, which is so funny because neither of us ended up in that field! (Ashley is the genius behind Park Floral Design!) In fact, she and Syd even went on a date once! It’s a small world, and we’re so happy to have the chance to work with them.

Before

Denver Tudor Reveal
They bought a small home that needed a lot of love. It’s a 1939 Tudor home with weird walls, unused space, and a lot of darkness. They wanted something bright, open and inviting with eclectic and old world styles mixed with fresh and clean.  We did the kitchen, bedroom, dining room, living room, powder bath, and exterior.

After

Ashley had pinned a lot of painted white brick homes, so we decided to do it! We painted the red brick in our favorite soft white, China White by Benjamin Moore! It contrasts with beautiful copper gutters and the darling front door that we painted Greyhound with a satin finish. We made sure to choose a color that's durable because no one wants to repaint their front door year after year!

When we first started talking abut the kitchen, Ashley mentioned that she was thinking about green cabinets, and we were so excited! The result is amazing. It has a modern vintage vibe and plays so well with the natural wood tones and brass hardware. We went with Forest Green by Benjamin Moore. This amazing graphic tile from the Cement Tile Shop takes the kitchen to a whole new level. We really paid attention to every single detail in the kitchen and I think it really reflects the charm this home has.

Our go-to paint color for refreshing a space is Super White by Benjamin Moore, and it definitely did the trick here. The black windows contrast perfectly with the white walls and tie in with the doors that we painted Black Iron. The woven wood shades are made of Hampton-2 from The Shade Store, and they really warm up the black and white contrast.

We used this sofa from Serena and Lily because it’s got one long cozy bench cushion and a warm wood base that ties in with our client's favorite chair from Article.

We wanted to reflect our client's love for the eclectic look by using a variety of pillows. We just got the Harper pillow in our shop and we love that it has bright colors, with a distressed finish. It's vibrant without being overwhelming!

Our original plan was to put a sectional in this area, but after thinking about the layout we decided to make it an entryway so you wouldn’t walk directly into the living room when entering the home. The result is two defined and open living spaces!

The Morris Lantern really steals the show and plays off the paneled walls in the dining room. The walls are also in Gray Owl, so they tie in perfectly with the fireplace. We love the size of the dining table because it’s warm and inviting, perfect when entertaining or having family dinners.

A small space doesn’t mean your design has to be small! Another winner from The Cement Tile shop was this amazing plaid tile. We made use of space with a floating vanity.

Your natural instinct with a small space might be to paint it white, but I’m so glad we went dark here! We used Newburg Green, a blue-green that changes with the light and really keeps things cozy. It also looks amazing with the bed frame they previously owned!

  1. This is my favorite reveal to date! It really shows how you can maximize style in an older and smaller home. I love everything about it!

  2. Wow amazing. Very classy yet comfortable. Thank you for Sharing your talent

    Having trouble in my area finding curtain rods like you used in this house. Any recommendations of where I should look

  3. So many design elements to love but that plaid tile! Also, a question on the "entry": why did you chose to put the desk near the door instead of the console? (just switching places)

    1. Same question! I’ve been waiting since their first sneak peek of this space to hopefully get a source for that!

  4. I would love to know where the small wood ottomans (topped with the cushions) were sourced from!
    The whole project is outstanding!

  5. This home looks like so many in my neighborhood (in a different state), but way more fabulous! Love the white painted brick! Would love to know more about the cabinets in the stairwell to the kitchen as I have a similar situation and want to understand how they function (reach the top shelves inside, etc.). Thanks! Love your work!

  6. Can you tell me where the living room stools with cushions are from? They’re perfect! Such a perfect space!

  7. Can you share where you got the bathroom floating vanity and light fixture? Really beautiful. Thanks. Kathleen

  8. Love the tile in the kitchen. I can’t figure out how best to clean cement tile. It’s been sealed but still seems more porous than other tile. Do you recommend putting a wax coating on top? Or do you have a specific cleaner you use?

  9. Oh..this is such perfect inspiration for my little house. May I ask if you replaced or painted the windows? I have wood windows and am currently deciding what to do with them. Thanks kindly.

  10. This is a stunning transformation. My 1939 Tudor in Kansas City is quite similar and for quite some time I have been debating painting my dark brick white or white washing it. Also, debating whether to replace windows or keep originals. Could you please share more detail on your window choice? Merci!

  11. Amazing transformation. The kitchen is so eclectic yet clean, it’s perfect. Would you mind sharing where the kitchen faucet is from?

  12. Hi from Australia Shae,

    Thank you SO MUCH for all your wonderful posts, you are just such an inspiration and I love, love everything you do!!! Thanks to your Sunday 7 posts I’ve just spent like wayyyy too much online picking up so many of your goodies!

    Would you mind sharing where you bought the black and white sweater you’re wearing in the Denver Tudor reveal please? (You’re wearing it when you’re in the studio talking with Kelsie).

    Thanks so much Shae and keep up the incredible work you do!!! You are next-level amazing xx

    1. Hi Lorraine!

      Thank you for your sweet words again! I don’t know if you saw our other reply to this comment on our Sunday 7 post, but I don’t wear a sweater or talk to Kelsie, so maybe you’re thinking of a different video? When I’m talking to Katie in the studio I am wearing a Madewell blouse 🙂

      Thanks again for your support!!

  13. Also meant to add that I’ve been searching high and low for your RVCA hat! I can’t seem to find it on their website.. Did you get it from there? Thank you so much! ♥♥♥

  14. I just happened to come across your dining room on Pinterest and got to see this beautiful transformation. Your home is lovely and you have made so many stunning improvements. I especially love the kitchen with the Forest Green cabinets and the tile floor. Fantastic transformation!

    1. So glad you found us! This isn’t our home, it’s our clients, but we’re so glad you enjoy it. Isn’t that Forest Green amazing? Xoxo

  15. Every room is perfect. A tribute to the vintage of the house, to Scandinavian influence, and creativity! Love the floor choices, the clean but warm feeling each room imbues. Thank you for sharing!!

  16. Could you share info on the dining table? I tried connecting to the link via Shop The Look, but get an error message. Maybe just me? No matter, love the transformation! All your projects are amazing!

  17. I’m so encouraged to see this post. I drool over each of your reveals, often in a fantasy "in another life" sort of way – but the size and approach to this one feels accessible to my real-life. I’m curious if you’d be able to share (with client’s permission) the broad price range that you had to work with for this project?

      1. Was this cut? I just put a sample of grey hound 50% up on my door and still looks darker/gray. What % did you use..???

  18. Love everything!! The exterior is gorgeous! I’m on the hunt for a new kitchen counter top. I love what you used. Would you mind sharing what the counter top is?

  19. This is beautiful! I want to recreate this Kitchen look in our new house!
    Did you paint the upper white cabinets the same "super white" as the walls?

  20. Loved everything about this house. What a beautiful transformation! Can you please tell me where the light wood floating shelves are from or were they custom made?

  21. i love this kitchen! do you know where the oven range was purchased? (brand, make, model, any info you have would be SO much appreciated). thanks a ton and beautiful work.

  22. LOVE what you did with house!! Your work is stunning! Would you mind sharing where you got the white entry table/cabinet from?

  23. I love everything about this house. The kitchen is so unique and amazing. Where are the two benches in the living room from? I think they are two benches set next to each other? Thank you!

  24. I love everything Studio McGee has done, but this one is my absolute favorite! That dinning room is amazing. Would you be willing to share where I can get the curtain rods? I have noticed the gold used in several of the blog posts and I am really liking it!

  25. Can you tell me what stain color you used on the floors?? I’m assuming they are red oak?? love! that color with the grey/white walls

  26. Love the reveal! looks great. I have to ask, where do you get the photo in the bedroom of Santorini Greece? love the faded soft look?

  27. Hi!

    Love the outcome! I especially love the green kitchen cabinets and the windows! Were the windows replaced completely or just painted? If replaced, what type of window was it and the cost? If painted, what are the color shades (both white and inside black). Thank you so much!

  28. This is incredible and such an inspiration! We are painting our new home interior white and I was wondering what paint color you use and where the curtains are from in the living room. Thank you!

  29. I love this post! I’m needing open shelving for my kitchen and wondering who you recommend? I know they need to be sturdy… probably not something to DIY? Thanks!!

  30. Does that lantern over the farm table provide enough light to use as the main source for eating? Looks like it comes in 3 sizes. What size is the one featured?

    1. Yes, it provides a great amount of light! We almost always use it in a space with big windows and a lot of natural light. We used a large lantern here. Hope this helps!

  31. I love the lighter color roof shingle on this house… Can you share the color? It’s hard to find a good looking lighter shingle to give the cedar look without the price.

    Thanks.

  32. Is there a sherwin Williams color similar to china white? I’m finalizing selections for my new build, thanks! Love the color here!

  33. LOVE THIS HOME. Wish we could just move right in!

    What is the finish on the BM Black Iron interior doors? About to paint ours and cannot decide on a finish! Satin?

    Thank you!

  34. I love this! What fabric did you use on the sofa? I’m considering the Serena and Lily Barton sofa and I love your choice here!

  35. Beautiful transformation! I particularly love the bedroom and have used it for inspiration in my room. Where is the dresser from? It is stunning!

  36. Your work demonstrates a high degree of talent and cultivated taste. You are generous to share so much of your process with us!
    I am updating a bathroom and need a brass toilet paper holder with two posts (to match existing screw holes. You use the same one in several projects, would you mind sharing the source? Thank You!

  37. Hi! I also live in the Denver Highlands neighborhood and we need to replace our windows. I love the ones that you’ve used throughout the house – would you mind sharing the source or local supplier? Thank you so so much!

  38. Hi there – the source code doesn’t seem to be working for the coffee table. Would you mind sharing where it is from?

  39. Would love to know where the white curtains and the dining room curtains are from. Struggling to find the perfect ones for my open concept living and dining room space! Thank you :) says:

    Thanks

  41. The bedroom looks just amazing! I would like to buy the same white curtains, blinds and curtain pole, where did you source them? Thank you!

  42. I would LOVE to know where the dutch door hardware is from – is it Emtek? Love that look! Great job with this one! Still a favorite 2 years later and I come back to it for Inspo!!

  43. Surprised no one has asked about the roof yet! Who makes these shingles and what is the color way you used? Thanks!

  44. Hello! I know this is an old post so I have no clue if you will read this or not, but just in case…. would you be able to share where the white backsplash tile is from as well as grout color? I am on the lookout for the exact look for my kitchen 🙂 thank you so much!

  45. Good Morning From Denver! I understand you completed this project a few years ago, but I was wondering if you could share the contractor that did the work on the Albion house. We just bought a brick tudor a few blocks away from this home, and are looking to have some work done. Your design is amazing!

    All the best,
    Mike

  46. I love this one so much and keep coming back for inspiration! I’m wondering if you know what black color was used for the exterior windows? Thanks!!
