Tour a Fresh & Modern Family Home

updated a formal family home with heavy, stained wood cabinets and outdated crystal light fixtures to craft a more modern, comfortable space for their clients. “It felt old and dated, and it just wasn’t them,” says Jennifer Patton Wundrow, who co-owns the design firm with her partner, Heather Brock. Wundrow and Brock worked together to make the design relevant again, painting the cabinetry and implementing a light, fresh color scheme to pair with chic furnishings. Each object has the sense of being curated, without being overly precious. Here, click through our slideshow to glimpse into the home. Nest Design Company
