John Colaneri with Vintage Rambler Exterior

Vintage Rambler Refresh


John Colaneri 

 

Designer, TV personality and owner of Lilyshea Development LLC, John Colaneri, recently tackled the remodel of his own home. Colaneri and his wife, Jennifer, purchased a vintage 1960s-era rambler in New Jersey with the intention of taking it down to the studs and remaking it.

 

Part of Colaneri’s goal in the renovation was to create as much natural light as possible in the home. He collaborated with Renewal by Andersen to refresh the windows in the space and worked with Andersen Windows and Doors to install the doors in the home.

When choosing materials, Colaneri blended old with new, incorporating natural wood to add warmth and character to the space.

His custom wood door acts as both an accent and an anchor, creating a focal point for the eye and grounding mixed materials with its natural finish.

Living Space

 

Instead of replacing the windows at the back of the home, John installed three 200 Series Perma-Shield gliding patio doors creating the illusion of more space by bringing more light in and bridging the interior living space to the outdoors.

Colaneri’s A-Series inswing patio door works with the newly installed skylights to create a bright and airy feel in the space and offers contrast to the white shiplap walls.
