Jennifer Eberle designed her 4-bed room, three-and-a-50 percent lavatory Glenmary house in 1999. Immediately after 17 yrs in the just one-and-a-50 percent-story household, she decided to give it a small facelift with some fresh wall shades.
“At 1st I was just likely to do some portray,” she told The Courier Journal. “But I knew Leslie (Lewis, of LL&A Inside Layout), and experienced her arrive about. (I reported), ‘I’m open up to your suggestions.’ Then we resolved to transform the complete first flooring.”
Completely ready for a revamp
Eberle took the nearby inside designer’s ideas and ran with them, and she compares the large renovation expose to one thing you’d see on a Television set present. In one working day, she claims, Lewis introduced in her total team, hung photos, placed decorations, and established up a completely new, redone space. Eberle had the solution of paying for any new pieces she liked and returning the ones she did not.
“I claimed, ‘I want to obtain it all!’” Eberle recalled with a giggle. “(Lewis) just created it so quick. I personal a enterprise (and) I never have time to store. … (I) was wowed. It was like I just (viewed) an episode on HGTV.”
The unique approach to give the house a fresh coat of paint led to updating doors and hardware, installing a new backsplash and cabinetry in the kitchen area, absolutely redoing the primary bed room, reconfiguring the built-in amusement heart, converting a seldom applied place of work into a huge stroll-in closet, and tearing up the outdated flooring.

“I had ceramic tile in (one room), carpet in (another), and hardwood in (an additional),” Eberle recalled. “We demolished all that.”
The household now offers hand-scraped engineered hardwood in an ebony complete all through, encouraging to tie anything collectively. Lewis also integrated some of Eberle’s current household furniture and add-ons, when adding in new items that reflected matters she likes, such as horses and a blue-green hue that is now sprinkled all over.
“I just preferred a extra cohesive stream and look to the residence,” Eberle stated, “(but) we have such gorgeous sights right here, I didn’t want it overdone. We preferred the outside to be equipped to come in.”
With additional-than-20-foot-tall ceilings and large windows, both of those Eberle and Lewis felt strongly about making a serene and neutral interior area that allows the outdoors communicate for by itself. The living area looks out toward the deck and pool, and the backyard that capabilities a stone route top to a gate connecting Eberle’s assets to her sister Julie Kelley’s, who life ideal upcoming door.
“I have a online video of the (pool installation) — it was rather extraordinary,” Eberle claimed with a snicker, detailing that the original program was to generate the fiberglass pool to the back of the property by means of Kelley’s assets. But once the pool corporation realized that prepare would not perform, it had to be craned over the roof from the entrance of the residence.

“It just obtained completed at the finish of previous summer season,” she added, “so we have put in a ton of time (at Kelley’s pool). Everyone questioned why I was putting a pool in when my sister has a pool. … But I just cannot just bombard, (and) I want to be capable to have my personal stuff. We’ll however go above.”
However the outside area includes the most the latest revamp to Eberle’s house, her most-preferred spaces are within.
“I shell out a large amount of time in the kitchen,” she reported. “I like to cook dinner, (and) it is wherever every person gathers when they appear in.”
Her most loved room — hands-down — is the former workplace that Lewis remodeled into a wander-in closet. “Back then, no one was genuinely employing residence places of work, and it was a waste,” Eberle stated. “Leslie experienced the brilliant plan to make that full business a significant, walk-in closet, which I really like.”
The closet was also a key advertising issue for Kelley, who enlisted the assist of Lewis for her very own property remodel following Eberle’s was finished.
