This week we staged a charming remodeled Oakland bungalow filled with sweet details such as interior french doors and a unique kitchen floor. Realtor Ron Kriss and his team did an amazing job re-imagining what was just a one-bedroom and turning it into a two-bedroom—with a bonus detached office.

We tried something a little different with this house—painting the inside as well as the outside of the front door. I just love this bright-yet-sophisticated blue (BM Jamestown Blue).

I also am a big fan of the floor treatment in the kitchen and dining area. The team finished the pine subfloor, then painted large black squares in a checkerboard pattern. It’s quaint, yet modern.

Behind the open door into the hallway (pictured above), there is a hidden chalkboard wall that we had some fun with.


We chose a fresh cantaloupe color for the accent wall in the kid’s room (BM Golden Archway).

The master bedroom is small yet peaceful, especially with Palladian Blue on the accent wall.

This home has an important bonus room—a converted garage that is fully wired to be an awesome art studio, playroom or office.

A simple paint job in white, gray and chalkboard paint makes the space light and bright.

This home will be open this weekend! If you live in the East Bay, come check it out!
