Eclectic Before-and-After Designs

Combine a variety of styles with color, texture and finish to achieve the perfect eclectic look. Designer Genevieve Gorder transforms dull, outdated rooms with a beautifully eclectic style.

  • Before: The Rodrigos have a serious case of basement blues. With dark wood paneling, oversized furniture and not enough lighting, they can't figure out how to update their basement.
  • After: Bold, contrasting colors are mixed with streamlined furnishings and eclectic accents for a unique living space.
  • Before: The old brick fireplace with tiny wooden mantel is in desperate need of an update.
  • After: A new white surround goes up to the ceiling, creating a dramatic focal point and updating the old brick fireplace.
  • Before: Eric and Tara Mancini are tired of their over-the-top pink kitchen, which is not only ugly but also hazardous.
  • After: An antique table and chairs is the perfect complement to the new and improved kitchen.
  • Before: With hideous faux brick backsplash and too pink countertops, this kitchen needs a major overhaul.
  • After: The kitchen is completely transformed with marble countertops, green tiled backsplash and beautiful new cabinetry. © 2010 Scripps Networks, L.L.C. All rights reserved
