Tonto Home Tour | TomKat Remodeling + Decorating Project

Share To:

As you may know, I have a serious passion for renovating, decorating and real estate. Last year, as I was building the TomKat team, I decided we were ready to start taking on client work! For years, locals have been asking if I could help with their homes but I was always focusing on our own homes and projects. With the strong team in place, we started taking on client remodel and decorating projects last Fall.

We had the opportunity to work with the sweetest family on the full remodel design, as well as full decorating of their Pinelake Estates home in Chandler! The Pinks family was officially our first “client” and it was such a fun experience working with them to help transform their house into their dream home. From knocking down walls, to styling every corner, this home got the head to toe TomKat treatment! We are so excited to share the finished result!

The front living room off the entry welcomes you with tall ceilings and large windows. We enhanced the height of this space by adding board and batten molding all the way up the wall and adding a beautiful matte black chandelier.

Entertaining is important to the Pinks family, so the goal was to open up all of the living spaces as much as possible to connect them for gatherings and celebrations. The dividing wall between the formal living room and family room was opened up and gorgeous molding was added around the columns that remained.

We gave the family room an a dramatic updated by centering the fireplace and adding white molding with a black and white patterned tile surround.  The leather sofa and modern chairs make this space both functional and beautiful for a family night at home or for entertaining guests.

This amazing kitchen went under a massive transformation with all new white shaker cabinets, quartz countertops, stunning matte black light fixtures and hardware. To tie in the gorgeous black and white patterned tile we used on the fireplace, we used the same tile behind the new range hood. The extra row of glass-front cabinets above were designed to take the cabinets all the way to the ceiling.

Gorgeous Kitchen Table Area

We used the client’s existing kitchen table, but dressed it up with our favorite iron and glass light fixture, a simple table runner and a simple greenery arrangement.

The powder bathroom also got some much needed TomKat love with a simple wood vanity anchored with black and white patterned tile floors. Our signature black framed mirror was perfect for this space.

In the master bedroom, we added a board and batten focal wall behind the bed and nightstands. We created a light, bright and serene space for the client to relax.

The master bathroom turned out absolutely gorgeous. It was fully redone from top to bottom. Every detail screams TomKat and we love how it all turned out!

The girls’ bathroom upstairs turned out beautiful with a double sink gray vanity, gray and white patterned tile and black hardware and fixtures! We are sure the girls will love getting ready in the space for years to come!

The playroom and girls’ bedrooms were updated as well, of course. We sat down to get their input on their spaces and they had so many great ideas!

We truly enjoyed helping our clients turn their house into their dream home! The home now has a timeless and classic look that with beautiful finishes and custom details. Cheers to the next chapter in their gorgeous new space, relaxing with family and entertaining friends!

Here’s what the Pinks family had to say about working with TomKat (blushing)…

Our family could not be more happy with choosing to have Kim and The TomKat Studio Team design and style our home. Kim is extremely talented with design as you can see from the work on her website. We did a complete remodel of our home including new furniture. Kim and her team helped us pick out everything! They are very consultative and easy to work with. You will become close with Kim and her team throughout this process. We were not only super happy with the process and results, we enjoyed having fun and getting to know Kim and her team. If you love Kim’s work and are looking to design or style your home, Kim and The TomKat Studio Team are the best choice! – Brian Pinks

    This is absolutely stunning, Kim!!!! I wish I lived closer to you and your team. We’re moving into a new-to-us home that needs updating and I’m trying to pick wall colors. What is the subtle neutral color you use for walls? It looks like a very pale grey but I can’t tell for sure. Picking wall colors is my biggest stressor, lol.

    I absolutely love the powder room wood vanity! I’ve scoured the internet, looking for it and cannot find it anywhere. Would you mind sharing where you bought it? Thank you so much! Love your work so much!
