Phoenix Ranch House-Rafterhouse-01-1 Kindesign

This bright and colorful 1950s ranch house was renovated by the homeowners, co-owners of Rafterhouse, located in the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix, Arizona. The home was inherited from of the owners grandparents, so they wanted to make their own spin on the place and turn it into a family home for their four children. The gut renovation took four months to complete, upgrading all the finishes and even the roof, as well as increasing the size of the home from 1,600 to 2,400 square feet. The home has taken on a completely different vibe, yet the homeowners tried to preserve some of the family memories. With children dashing throughout the home, careful attention was paid to the selection of furnishings. Keeping everything very simple, with clean lines and bright pops of color. The living room features custom barn doors finished with a bright white to conceal the television and other technical equipment.

The kitchen was extended out from the house to accommodate a beautiful crisp white island topped with Carrera marble. The home features a lot of budget-friendly finds such as the industrial style bar stools from World Market. The pantry door was salvaged and re-painted to add a pop of color to the otherwise muted down space. The light fixtures were also a great find, sourced from a vintage market. This was a really fun and playful renovation that we enjoyed sharing with you, what you think, is there any details in this home that speaks to you? Let us know your thoughts below!
