Making Memories

Floyds Knobs couple thrilled with stunning renovation

Living in their Floyds Knobs home since 2001, Jenny and Sean Stumler have raised two children and spend countless hours building memories with nearby family members. But, with any home that has been lived in for a while, refreshing the décor is always a welcome detour. So, with the help of Karista Hannah – owner/interior designer of Set the Stage – the Stumlers brightened up the space to reflect their collective spirit: relaxed and vibrant.

“I had met Karista during a Homearama in 2015 and immediately felt a connection,” Jenny shared. “We have worked on three different projects since that time and she has never let me down. The renovation itself took about five months. We had to move out, but fortunately, we had a family member who was moving and still had their previous home for us to use.”

The style of the home was darker and constricted, so they opted to eliminate walls in order to improve the flow. Newly added architectural elements, stylish furniture, accessories, and lighting were all the elements needed to breathe new life into this family home.

Reclaimed beams add a rustic touch to the space and architectural details, like the trim, accentuate the room. White cabinets are complemented by the island painted in a dark hue. Pendant lights hover over the expansive island that includes stylish bar chairs. The breakfast nook includes table and chairs overlooking the outdoor entertaining area that features a pool.

“What I love about working with Karista is that she is very conscience of costs and is eager to repurpose furniture,” Jenny said.

A large console – a focal point in the great room – was painted and given a new look. It plays host to family collectibles and a flat screen television. Checkered upholstery cloaks the plush club chairs and pairs well with the sofa and leather chair for comfortable seating. Pedestal accent tables host stylish lamps, and a metal chandelier adds drama to the room.

“The ceiling was already in place, but we decided to give it a more rustic appearance and then added the chandelier,” Jenny reflected as we chatted about the master bedroom. The vibe is relaxed and tranquil while the décor is simple and understated. Crisp linens dress the bed accentuated with a tufted headboard. Patterned drapes frame the windows that provide a view of the lush landscape surrounding their home. Inviting wingback chairs flank an accent table. Collectibles are displayed on the ornate dresser while an elegant mirror is propped against the wall.

“Now that our children our grown, we had talked about downsizing,” said Jenny, “but this is home, and we want them to be able to come back and visit the place where our memories have been made.”
