Girl's bedroom at the Summit Avenue mansion, as seen on DIY Network's Rehab Addict. Nicole Preserved the original fireplaces, including the original woodwork and surrounding tile. Kid's bedrooms are very important to Nicole as she always wants to ensure that her restored homes are family friendly.
A new rug took up $110 of the $500 budget. Designer Heather Hogan Roberts found this fleece rug with a geometric pattern on sale and saved more with a 10 percent off coupon. She bought two ikat window panels and got one for 40 percent off. Those savings allowed her to buy discounted fabric for custom pillows and the elephant end table, which cost $40 at a thrift shop. The fiddle-leaf fig adds natural beauty to a corner with no need for wall art.
As seen on Rehab Addict, Nicole Curtis restored the powder room off the grand staircase to period appropriate style after it had been completely gutted.

Jess and Jeremy bought their dream home in West Orange, NJ three years ago, but the island and entire kitchen are nothing but a nightmare.

After demolishing it, Luis spends the weekend with Jess and Jeremy reconfiguring the kitchen layout and flow, installing new granite countertops and a modern backsplash and transforming this space into a sleek and functional kitchen.

With serene colors and an open flow this extraordinary bedroom is exactly what Lisa needs.
Jeff and Jen thought they were onto something cute when they designed their cherry themed kitchen to mask their very dated, cramped space.

With new dark wood cabinets, a stainless back splash, a custom-made hydraulic table that changes from a dining table to a coffee table and banquette seating, this kitchen is no longer an embarrassment, but a stunning room for both dining and lounging.
