by Ashley Tapley, Owner, Designer & Stager House Candy Home
This midcentury Aptos golf course home got a makeover before it was listed and sold in a snap. We were thrilled to be working on another makeover with Brooke and Kasey Hinchman from David Lyng. We did a pre-sale walkthrough and determined how to best maximize the sale price for the home. The owner was also thrilled to be leaving it in great shape for another generation. She grew up in the home so this was a very special project. I also live in the neighborhood so it was especially special to me.

We had a vision of selecting colors and finishes with a Modern Farmhouse style
Color consultation inside and out: Exterior: Bunglehouse Gray , Creamy trim and Tricorn Black door. Interior: Natural Choice walls and Green Trim. We also specified various sheens to maximize the brightness in the rooms, and had a pretty strategic color placement strategy to help blend in some closet doors to the paneling -all paints were Sherwin Williams
