The goal was to bring more curb appeal to the old 6,500 square foot building. The original colors had faded tremendously, giving the building little to no flare, therefore not standing out, although it being on one of the busiest streets in the heart of Kansas City, Missouri.  Contract Furnishings' amazing designers came up with a subtle, but elegant color scheme just hours before the project started.
