Before: Color DisasterWendy and Guy are warm, outgoing and love color but they're living with too much of a good thing. A year ago, Wendy decided to be brave and chose a strong scheme for the family room. Unfortunately, the green and burgundy turned out to be a color disaster, and the couches were a failed attempt to lighten the room.
