Real estate expert Brandie Malay arrives first to provide her professional opinion. She likes the layout of the living room and its warm color palette and large balcony. Malay's opinion quickly changes once she sees the bathroom. She refers to the room as a bad fairy tale because of the dated-pink tile and fluffy butterfly décor. She finds the spare bedroom dysfunctional and overwhelmingly cluttered. Malay kiddingly calls the room a built-in storage unit. The kitchen's country-kitsch fruit theme, dark cabinets and cutesy curtains all looked dated too, so this room also receives a big thumbs down.
Designer Monica Pedersen agrees with Malay’s comments and has a $2,000 plan that will turn the newly-married motif into a newly-sold home.
Step 1: Morph the bathroom’s fluffy butterfly theme into a contemporary spa-like retreat.
Step 2: Make the spare bedroom look like bedroom and not a storeroom.
Step 3: Kill the kitsch in the kitchen and get rid of the mismatched furniture.
Carpenters Robert North and Chad Lopez will provide their skill and know-how to get the job done.
