Hide CaptionShow CaptionThis room went from pretty plain to just plain pretty.
Before, the beige furniture blended into the plain vanilla walls, but now it pops with color, thanks to the new peach paint and classy stripes underneath the chair rail. The Parisian theme is toned down to just a touch of French elegance, and the new layout provides a more spacious feel. A set of drapes the homeowner had stored away does a great job of dressing the windows.

In the guest bedroom, the tomato-red wall is repainted a nice, neutral tone. A daybed replaces the queen-size bed to free up more space. A combination window box and storage trunk is placed beneath the bright window.

outdoor daybed $200
patio decor $550

window seat $65

Total: $1,990
