After the makeover, rich red on the back wall of the office ties it into the red all over the living room walls and ceiling. A painted door hidden in the basement was the inspiration for the color scheme and is now displayed prominently. Copper pillows and gold accents blend in beautifully.

The homeowners' taste is colorful and eclectic, but neither of those qualities was coming through in their previous decor.

The vibrant red walls and the airy curtains now combine with the chairs and simple accessories to make the window area more interesting.

Before the makeover, the entryway wasn't making much of a first impression.

The same red and the same gold accents used throughout the makeover keep this area connected to the other spaces and create a warm welcome for visitors.
