It's not every day that you're tasked with collaborating on a renovation of a church. Yes, a church! Over a large portion of 2017, we worked with a team to give this catholic church one of the biggest facelifts it's ever gotten. Built in the 60's, it was a pretty modern building that hadn't been painted since it was built. True to the modernism of it's time, it lacked a lot of detail. When it came time to source new colors, we were challenged with created a brighter and more sleek space, while finding ways to add depth. We did this by layering variations of neutrals colors throughout. Something you might not even notice without looking.
This was a particularly special project for two other reasons. First, we were able to team up with my dad, who owns a commercial construction company in upstate New York. Him and his team have a wealth of knowledge and experience that I loved tapping into. Secondly, this was my childhood church growing up, so it was an extra special feeling to be able to contribute to the transformation, even in small ways. It was a huge project for them and the community, so it was an honor to be involved. I've included some before pictures too, so you can see what a big transformation it really was.
