There is a dentist in our town who I felt like I knew long before I ever met her. Dr. Kellye Rice has a very successful practice in Franklin, TN. I had seen her picture for years in magazines, on television commercials and direct mail pieces. When I was finally introduced to her she was everything I thought she would be warm, cheerful, intelligent and thoughtful. Our task was to help her with an office makeover that would be an extension of herself. The office had not been updated since the 80's. We love when we can get our hands on a project like this. It makes for some really good before and after pictures. Before and after Brooks applied an Old World Tuscan villa treatment to the walls. He also painted the trim and door moldings a rich chocolate brown. He glazed and aged an existing cabinet and added an embedded design to the cabinet door. Dr. Rice put the icing on the cake by replacing the carpet with rich hardwoods and installing new granite counter tops. The end result is a relaxing comfortable reception area that is a welcoming spot for her patients. Photo credit for "after" shots goes to Nancy McNulty of McNulty Communications.
