During the planning stages of their renovation, the owners immediately envisioned a sophisticated space their grandchildren would also enjoy. The minimal space allowed no room for the children to play in and the previous interiors included pink walls and a Mediterranean theme. Looking to revamp their old space with a modern look, they decided to acquire the help of interior designer Van Acuna to turn the shabby townhouse into a stylish home by adding a few trendy touches.

A neutral palette ranging from dark grey to white was chosen for the walls and furniture. Pieces with distinct straight lines and sharp edges were paired with different shades of blue to give the space a cooler, modern feel. More seating and extra space expanded the house to allow room for movement and guests. Accessories such as family photographs and paintings were displayed to finish off the look. Now, the townhouse not only can accommodate the whole family, it perfectly suits them, too.
