When Kamilah mentions that she likes rich pinks, chocolate brown and cream, Brice immediately thinks of Neapolitan ice cream, which inspires the makeover color scheme. The desk is moved, and a new chaise lounge is brought in, so that the room can double as a guest room. Kelly makes hip window curtains out of a brown and cream shower curtain, with an extra band of fabric to lengthen them and a pink grosgrain ribbon to cover the seam. Coordinating throw pillows reinforce the color scheme.
