When newlyweds Matt and Lori Proulx walked into Sterling Carpet One Floor & Home, they had no idea how incredible the transformation would be to their 1930s home on Grace Lake.
Sterling Carpet One’s in-house designers Berit Rosenberg and Alicia Erickson met with Matt and Lori and connected immediately. Coming from the East Coast, Lori envisioned a coastal style kitchen that would not only renew their space, but evoke the loving spirit of her mom and give their blended family a feeling of “home.”
“It was easy to get on board with Lori’s vision and fun to put things together for them, and we knew it would move her to joyful tears,” Berit said
With Berit’s rendering, Matt and Lori could visualize the possibilities their space had to offer. They could make their closed kitchen with limited storage into an open floor plan concept, which provided a much larger kitchen. Lori wanted the biggest island she could get, and with their new layout, she could have exactly what she imagined. Soon after getting a game plan, Zetah Construction was called in to help with the project.
“The communication between Sterling and Zetah was remarkable. We could not have done it if they hadn’t had been so good at working together on scheduling everything as to what came next. It really was a collaborative effort,” Lori said.
The Grace Lake Dream Home Remodel included new Marsh painted cabinets with amazing details in the corbels, side panels, unique storage, Cambria countertops, an arabesque backsplash, walnut hardwood floors, stunning focal-point lighting and unique appliances from Benusa.
“It was really cool see this dream kitchen come together within a budget. It goes to show that anything is possible if you can think outside the box,” Alicia said.
For Matt and Lori, it really was a dream come true. They have their lake place, a brand new tailored design, but even more so, it is where they plan to make new memories and really call it home.
