Episode 07 - The North 40th Street Story November 11, 2015 Chip and Joanna sought to help find the perfect home for their client and her son as they were starting a new chapter in their lives. Joanna really wanted to make this a space feel special for both of them; a place to look forward to coming home to. Although the house was small, she really wanted to incorporate unique pieces and attention to detail. Before the renovation started, the house had a choppy layout. The client wanted a larger living space, so Chip and Joanna removed a wall to open up the space. The kitchen didn’t actually change in size, but Chip and Joanna decided to reconfigure the cabinets to make it seem larger. Joanna also used contrasting colors to give the space a bigger feel. All it takes is some brainstorming and creative design to transform a small space into something much larger in The North 40th Street Story!
