Before: White on White
This 1,500-square-foot room is full of potential, but the lack of color and minimal furniture make the space feel cold and uninviting.
After: Modern Meets Traditional
Timeless touches like a vintage couch and applied moldings on the walls warm up this space, while bright yellow and turquoise accessories add Miami flair.
Before: Busy Bedroom
The right patterns can bring a room to life, but fussy florals make this bedroom look outdated and cluttered.
After: Old-World Elegance
Rich color, pattern and texture come together to create a luxurious, romantic sanctuary. An arched stone wall with stained glass-inspired artwork provides a dramatic backdrop for the bed.
Before: Drab Dining Room
While the homeowners have added some stylish pieces to this dining room, the dull, gray walls make the small space feel even more closed in.
After: Bold and Bright
Crisp, white walls open up this space and accentuate the room's bold, graphic pieces, including a 13-foot long yellow upholstered couch and pink French bulldog paintings.
Before: Uninspired Space
From the bland, gray walls to the undersized furniture and artwork, nothing about this bedroom makes a statement.
After: Chic Yet Cozy
A sculptural, round bed becomes a striking focal point for this modern, masculine bedroom. Purple accent pieces, plus a wood wall in a bold, undulating pattern, warm up the minimalist space.
Before: Blank Slate
This living room has great views, but the empty space is in dire need of design. The shabby carpet isn't doing the room any favors either.
After: Beachy Elegance
A neutral palette with pops of sea-inspired color is a breath of fresh air for this space. The sundrenched look of the laminate flooring enhances the room's beachy appeal.
