Fresh and Modern Makeovers You Can Try in Your Own Home
Before: A Sectioned-Off Space
A large sectional closed off the room's full seating potential.
After: Textured Neutrals & Plenty Of Seating
This fresh living space has room for all of your guests – including drop-ins! The varying neutral shades allow the fresh greenery in the space to provide a bright pop of color, and a light-colored brick inside the fireplace draws focus to the art above.
Before: Boring Bathroom
This sea-themed space feels a little too eccentric.
After: Lots Of Storage
Textured marble countertops, dark navy cabinetry, and a neutral penny-round tile is complemented by a driftwood mirror.
Before: Plain-Jane Bedroom
With two beds sharing one space, the room reads as dark and cramped.
After: A Welcoming, Comfortable Space For Guests
This fresh makeover pulled cues from the original carpeting – Marie added a patterned rug on top of a new indoor/outdoor carpet to lighten the room. A darker headboard pulls the eye upward, and fresh white bedding makes the bedroom feel oh-so-inviting.
Before: Dark Dining Room
Although formal, the deep olive paint color in this dining room detracts from the large windows' natural light.
After: Elegant Florals Ready For Company
A pretty, patterned wallpaper wakes up this room and a gold light fixture provides a bright focal point.
Before: A Dated Family Room
Dark colors, patterns, and pillars make the room feel much smaller than it is.
After: Guest-Ready With Accentuated High Ceilings
This updated room has seating options for everyone, and a fresh white interior makes the room feel modern and open. Plus, don't the chandeliers make a marked improvement on the ceiling?
Before: An Unused Sitting Room
Thick curtains weigh filter too much light from this sitting room's expansive windows.
After: A New Dining Area
Sheer window coverings, a long wooden table, and beautiful pendant fixtures turned this space into the perfect room for hosting dinner parties.
