We’ve been having connectivity issues with our blog, but it’s all fixed now so we thought we’d better give an update on the remodel! IT’S DONE! Hope you enjoy the tour!
Patricia wanted to go with a Mexican theme since it’s such a part of New Mexico’s culture. It’s allowed for a balance of neutrals and brights, and overall it just feels warm and inviting!
Patricia is loving her new workspace in the kitchen! Especially the raised dishwasher!
Becca gave the chairs a spicy little makeover. She also made a matching table runner and cushion for the bench.
Kim and Patricia have really enjoyed their breakfast nook, which also tends to double as Kim’s office!
The guests have enjoyed sitting at the bar while meals are going on the table. The old kitchen layout had Patricia kind of secluded while she prepared meals, and she is enjoying getting to visit while she works her magic in the new kitchen. Tye cut the brand out of sheet metal and hung it on the hood of the stove for an additional accent piece. Everyone has pitched in a little creativity!
The upholstery for the barstools was chosen with the look of a tooled saddle in mind. They turned out beautifully!
The bar top is branded on the corners, with our brands. This is our cattle brand…
…and here is our sheep brand
The “Drink Station” is a great place for guests to wash up before dinner, and allows more counter space for Kim while he fills everyone’s glasses with their drink of choice.
Becca is also giving these canisters a bright makeover so they’ll tie in better with the other Mexican pottery in the kitchen.
The dining room is so much more open now! We can comfortably seat 12 when the additional leaves are in the table.
It’s hard to see the detail of the walls in the other pictures. Patricia put a lot of work into these walls! After the base coat was completed she did a wash over the top to highlight the texture, and give it an “old” feel. The ceiling is a few shades darker to add a little drama, and it ties in really well with the log posts!
She also painted all of the interior doors red to add a pop of color. We’ve got The Bunkhouse and Casita, maybe the main house needs to be called The Red Door Villa?
The screened in porch has been wonderful! It’s amazing how much wind it blocks, and with the french doors opening to the outside, it will allow lots of extra seating on cattle drive weeks!
