Host Lee Snijders assesses the situation when he visits this bachelor's pad. They decide that new furniture, cool colors and some dramatic lighting will give the two rooms the space-age lift they need. The couch must stay, but needs to be adapted to fit the chosen style and the chair needs to be replaced with something more fitting. While the coffee table and side tables are nice, they also need to be changed to better blend with the new decor. The dining room table screams country, so the team will have to do something there too.
The atomic age takes off in Pruden's living and dining room — here's how the design team gets it done for less than $1,000:
- A turquoise blue hue in both rooms sets the stage for the 1950s look. The dining room features a two-tone color scheme with the walls painted the turquoise below the chair rail and a light gray above.
