Remodelista Reconnaissance: A Green-Painted Floor in an All-Season Space

January 12, 2024

When we featured the before and after photos of A 1920s Minneapolis Craftsman, Moody Makeover Edition, our favorite transformation was the porch. Formerly more of a storage overflow than a usable space, designer Anne McDonald layered it with laid-back furnishings, lots of warm texture, and “a big dresser to put mittens and hats.” And it turned out we weren’t the only ones admiring the wood floor, painted a deep green-blue. What color was used, readers wanted to know? A quick email to the designer later…

the quickest way to transform a bland space? by ripping out dated vinyl tiles,  12
