During and After Bedroom Photos: The Marquez Family

In the second episode of HGTV's $250,000 Challenge, contestants Jeff and Elizabell Marquez add romance to the bedroom with a Hollywood-glam makeover.

  • Elizabell and carpenter Andy Hampton install curtain rods and prepare curtains for display.
  • Elizabell and Jeff hang a decorative mirror in keeping with the style of their romantic-chic bedroom.
  • The Marquezes touch up the closet doors and replace outdated hardware.
  • Jeff mixes paints in preparation for creation of the bedroom’s original artwork, inspired by Elizabell’s wedding bouquet.
  • An extra table serves as a catchall for decorative accessories such as buttons, color swatches, thread and hardware.
  • To keep expenses within budget, the couple chose children’s furniture and paired it with elegant accessories for a grown-up look.
  • A custom-built, padded and button-tufted headboard adds romance.
  • Bouquets of cream roses and four-ball clear glass bedside lamps add subtle sophistication.
  • The scrollwork frame of the mirror echoes silver tones in the glass mosaic candle goblets set atop the dresser.
  • Jeff’s original artwork, inspired by Elizabell’s wedding bouquet, supplies a pop of drama and color.
  • Luxurious linens and bead-fringed pillows create an inviting nest for relaxation.
  • A bejeweled tieback holds the luxe drapery in place.
