Learn How to Transform your Home
Annie Sloan, the maker of Chalk Paint, is perhaps the world's most-respected expert in decorative paint, colors and techniques - and you can learn many of her tips and tricks without leaving Santa Clarita. With workshops like Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Cabinet Transformations, Chalk Paint Beginning Workshop, Paint Therapy, Flower Arranging Workshops and more, you'll be able to DIY in every room of your home. At Refined Vintage Boutique, workshops range from beginner-level and add additional layers for more experienced painters. Working one on one, staff make sure you know exactly what your doing once you leave but, if you don't feel like you can or want to DIY, they can also paint your pieces for you.

Go Towards the White
Light and bright soft-colored walls with a textured accent wall with tile make this room feel expansive and welcoming. The fresh white fireplace and linen drapery in white, accented with darker furniture and floor, is the perfect combination.

Replace the Oak
Replacing oak cabinets with bright white is still one of the most popular ways to update an old, tired kitchen. While painting will give cabinets a fresh look, it really won't improve the function of the kitchen the way new cabinetry will. In this beautiful kitchen, much thought was given to storage and accessibility to improve not only the esthetics of the space but to allow the homeowner to make meal prep and clean up a pleasure, not a chore. Of course, replacing tile counter tops with new quartz counter tops like the one shown here in Viatera Minuet also brings new life into a kitchen. Quartz tops come in many designs and require little in the way of maintenance, making it the smart, beautiful choice for counter tops.
