Pencil & Paper Co. designs homes that we want to live in and for Beauregard...we did just that! We love finding the diamond in the rough, an old house with great bones that no one has touched for the last 50+ years (and usually no one else wants).....there's nothing better then bringing an old house back to life. This house was purchased as a temporary home while we completed a long-term renovation across the street. We knew we could complete a quick renovation on this simple 1950's ranch and live in it while the more elaborate construction took place.

For the interior of the home we love a clean bright white space with pops of color. We painted all the walls a crisp warm white ( Delicate white from Porter Paint) and added pops of color through accessories and artwork. We always want a home to feel inviting, colorful and our ultimate goal was to design a space that a growing young family would love.

Want your own Pencil & Paper Co. look? Our "Design To Go" program, an online affordable alternative to traditional interior design.  With "Design To Go", we ask that our clients answer our online questionnaire and then provide us with photos of their space, measurements of the room and any inspiration images they may have.  We then start designing!  I have attached a concept which is an example of what the client would receive which happens to be the kitchen at Beauregard.  In addition to the concept, we'll include a floorplan which details out where to place each piece along with a shop list so they can purchase and implement at their own pace.  This has been a super fun way to bring our signature style to Pencil & Paper Co. fans everywhere! And, you won't believe how much a client saves by utilizing our "Design To Go" program.  Typically if a client were to hire us or any designer to concept a kitchen, it could be anywhere from $200-$500 an hour...however with "Design To Go" you can have a brand new space for $2,000!  And, as a special treat for SMP readers, Gen and the Pencil & Paper Co. team are offering $200 off their Design to Go service using the code SMPLove!
