The Pearl River Home - Renovation Rekindle S3E5

Pearl River Home Tour: Renovation Rekindle S3E5

Michelle, Jason, and their three daughters had been living in their single-story home for nearly a decade. Seeking a modern upgrade with more space, they explored various options: moving, renovating, or building a new home. Ultimately, they chose to rebuild on their property, and we couldn’t be happier for them! Let’s take a stroll through their new home:

The Entryway

The foyer greets you with modern touches, featuring a board and batten accent wall painted in Benjamin Moore Pewter, black metal balusters along the staircase, and ashy-toned stained flooring. To the left, there’s a small powder room and the entrance to the kitchen. To the right, you’ll find a bonus room that Michele and Jason plan to use as an additional living room. Out of frame is the home office, located directly to your left as you enter.


Michelle sought a timeless kitchen aesthetic with clean lines and ample natural light. She fell in love with a dusty blue color for the island, complementing it with soft gray cabinets and classic white subway tile on the perimeter. These colors, Benjamin Moore Ocean Floor and Silver Song, are beautifully accented by matte black hardware, creating a harmonious and elegant look.

The color palette, combined with the large island and open floor plan that flows into the family room, gives the kitchen an expansive yet welcoming vibe.

Kitchen Pantry

A stained double swinging wood door opens to the walk-in pantry, which features its own extra sink, a drink fridge, and plenty of cabinet storage. We echoed the kitchen’s color palette with two-toned cabinets, open wood shelving, and a white picket backsplash tile.

The Design

Kitchen mood board with two-toned cabinets in Benjamin Moore Ocean Floor, and Benjamin Moore Silver Song. Wall colors are Benjamin Moore Calm, and Benjamin Moore Pearl River. Design details include stained wood in Mixwax Shipboard, a white ceramic farmhouse sink by Kohler, glass globe pendant lighting, and Benjamin Moore Pewter gray for accents.

Living Room

The great room is the main reason Michele and Jason ultimately went with this floor plan. In the last season of Renovation Rekindle, we built “The Cape House,” which had the same floor plan, and they fell in love with this room!

Their favorite features are the vaulted ceilings with stained beams, the window seats with storage, and the large windows that let in so much natural light.


Spacious mudroom with light gray paneling and built-in storage cabinets. The room features a wooden bench with open space underneath for shoe storage, and a set of wooden hooks for hanging coats and bags. A small countertop and cabinet provide additional storage and display space for decorative items like a vase with flowers. The floor is covered in light-colored tile, and the space is neatly arranged to keep the area tidy and functional.

A mudroom was high on their wish list, and this one does not disappoint! It’s packed with functional features, including a broom and vacuum closet, a counter for charging devices, and numerous nooks and crannies for extra storage.

Home Office

Jason works from home and wanted a dedicated office space. We incorporated a board and batten “Zoom wall,” matching the entryway accent wall color, which is visible from the foyer. This feature adds significant dimension to an otherwise plain room.

Primary Suite: The Bathroom

The primary en-suite mirrors the timeless kitchen aesthetic, offering a perfect place to unwind at the end of the day. The walk-in shower features large subway tiles accented by classic basketweave tile. We installed large format tiles in a herringbone pattern on the floor, adding a subtle yet stylish detail.

The most eye-catching feature of this bathroom is the grid accent wall behind the soaking tub, painted in Benjamin Moore Britannia Blue 1623.

Second Floor Bathroom

Jason and Michele have three girls who were thrilled to have their own bathroom in the new house! For the design, we kept the color palette neutral, installing a warm-toned wood double vanity with matte black hardware and fixtures. To add a subtle pop of color, we chose a pale blue subway tile for a herringbone accent wall in the shower.

Bonus Room

Jason and Michelle wanted a separate den on the main level where the girls could hang out and watch TV with friends. This room served as the perfect flex space. We designed it with a door from the foyer and a pocket door from the kitchen, allowing the room to be closed off or opened up to the rest of the living space as needed.

To ensure versatility for future use, we designed a shallow coffered ceiling detail that would be perfect for a dining room.

The exterior

A modern two-story house with blue siding and white trim, featuring a gabled roof and a double garage with white doors. The house has a spacious driveway leading up to it and a well-maintained front yard surrounded by mature trees. The front entrance includes a covered porch with white railings, adding to the home's inviting appearance. The sky is clear and blue, and the surrounding trees indicate a peaceful, suburban setting

Michelle and Jason knew from the beginning that they wanted the siding to be this beautiful shade of blue. The metal roofing, stone foundation, and bumped-out windows add a little bit of character to this traditional colonial look.
