Every house has it’s “BEFORE” shots.  It is always such a privilege to take existing spaces…especially something as special as a family’s home…and make them wonderful for everyone.  The photos of the home below are no exception…  The goal? Almost a Colorado, French feel with a slight feminine touch.

Master Bedroom BEFORE: Those windows should be highlighted!

Master Bedroom AFTER:  The sumptuous drapes and custom upholstered wall make the room feel void of noise but full of softness and comfort.  The chandelier is a shout back to the client’s love of St. John.  (Photo by Judy Revenaugh)

The Master bath BEFORE:  Soffits…  what to do with them?

The Master bath AFTER:  We removed the soffit to open the space up and added some incredible details, such as the metal window valance and custom designed and built vanities.

The Entry BEFORE:  Too much oak!

The Entry AFTER:  We opened up the doorways to allow more light to pass through add added drapes for drama!  (Photo by Judy Revenaugh)

The Living Room BEFORE:  What to do with the upper shelves?

The Living Room AFTER:  We “filled in” the upper shelves to give them more of a “purpose.”  The oak cabinets received a face lift and the once dark room is now light! (Photo by Judy Revenaugh)

The Saturday Morning room BEFORE:  This room was full of windows and was a wonderful place to create a snuggly spot to enjoy coffee on Saturday mornings and watch the snow fall.

The Saturday Morning room AFTER:  Chandeliers!  Wow, do those special pieces add so much!  The daybed is a wonderful place to relax and a custom upholstered “back” was created and hung on the wall to create even more comfort.  Saturday…she is ready for you!  (Photo by Judy Revenaugh)

Lower level bar BEFORE:  The area wasn’t efficient in the layout.  One would enter the room on the right, but have to go all the way around the bar to use it.  The look didn’t match the client’s goals.

Lower level bar AFTER:  One now enters the bar in the proper spot and the room has been very warmed up with new finishes and a live edge bar top.

Lower level pool table area BEFORE:  This area functioned fine for the grandkids, but needed a little punch.

Lower level pool table area AFTER:  We had the beams covered and reclaimed wood added to the wall to add warmth.  The oversized art gives a nod to the family’s love of racing.  (Photo by Judy Revenaugh)

Originally founded in 1982, family-owned Tran + Thomas Design Studio has emerged as a top leader in Interior Architecture, Interior Design, and Product Selection. Our team brings extraordinary beauty and luxury to homes in the Kansas City area and beyond. There are no tired formulas or leftover recipes used in our work, but rather an approach that starts with heightened imagination and a practiced design philosophy and ends with happy clients residing in a beautiful space. For over a quarter century we have turned dreams into reality by first imagining the ultimate interior and then determining how to achieve that interior.

Building new homes, remodeling, finding the perfect furniture for clients

Our breathtaking Interior Design is famous for being a reflection of the uniquely different styles of our clients personalities.  Jill and Carmen have extensive experience designing traditional, transitional, and modern homes and spaces.

Why Tran + Thomas?
The choice of whom you work with on your home or office is absolutely everything.  Knowledge of what is available, creativity, organization, dependability, trust, sources, contacts, education, respect, personality and the ability to interpret and bring to life your needs only comes from one place…experience.  Tran + Thomas has that in spades!

We hope you will consider Tran + Thomas for your next design project!
