In this dramatic makeover, a fresh coat of paint gives a dated house with great bones new life. See how designer Olivia Botrie of Dart Studio used a modern color palette to bring the existing custom millwork, cabinets and fireplace into the 21st century. In the kitchen, black lower cabinets and white uppers re-energized the space for a fresh, youthful vibe. In the living room, the original fireplace mantel was updated with white paint, a new marble surround and a herringbone hearth. Black walls and white millwork create contrast in the dining room.
