2014 BLSJ MAME Award Best Residential Alteration Sewell, NJ
Tammy Collins, CAPS Cipriani Remodeling Solutions
The only way to understand where this gem of an exterior face lift came from is to see the “before” pictures. This house went from “unseen” to “show stopper”. The cars stop daily out front to get a closer look.
The clients wanted to inject new personality into their beloved home. New siding and a faux stone material were used as the basis for the color palette and the theme for the home’s new aesthetic.
The faux stone is so authentic and rich that it’s difficult to tell it’s not real stone. A random flag stone stamped concrete pattern was used on the new round entry stairs, the walkway, and around to home’s new exterior stairs. The use of black wrought iron was incorporated to bring a timeless feel and a touch of pizzazz. The addition of the wrought iron was a deliberate choice by the designer to create a subtle hint of formality. The exterior light fixtures were also chosen in an antiqued bronze with aged glass to compliment the new exterior, making this truly a show stopper renovation.
