During and After Bedroom Photos: The Alexander Family

In the second episode of HGTV's $250,000 Challenge, contestants Kelley and Phyllis Alexander give new life to an outdated space with a vibrant color palette.

  • Guest designer David Bromstad demonstrates his painting techniques and helps the Alexander sisters formulate their project idea.
  • Kelley assembles furniture parts in preparation for assembly of the bed.
  • Sister Phyllis prepares floral arrangements for the bedroom.
  • Kelley and Phyllis decided upon an oversized, cream-colored headboard to counteract the intensity of the bright turquoise wall color.
  • Phyllis puts the finishing touches on her team’s original artwork.
  • The sisters’ decorative frame holds a mirror to brighten the room.
  • A cozy nook near the updated fireplace serves as the perfect perch to read or nap.
  • A writing desk displays family photos and an aqua-colored glass table lamp. Guest designer David Bromstad would have preferred that the team paint this desk white to pop against the chocolate walls.
  • Polished pewter accessories and a vase of brightly colored daisies contrast with the dark-wood side table.
  • Sheer white curtains let light into the bedroom.
  • A scrollwork metal table holds family photos, flowers and wire accent lamps.
