A Living Room Makeover, House Beautiful Style

Renovations can cost a fortune, take a lot of time and cause a lot of headaches.  But what about a one day living room makeover?  It couldn’t be too bad, could it?  Let’s see how House Beautiful tackles this living room while the homeowners are at work.

To begin, they have great, dark hardwoods and a neutral wall color which provides a blank slate for the design team, but immediately they start removing the neutral accents to make space for brighter pieces.

As they shop for the basics, they gravitate toward bold, graphic prints which are very on trend at the moment and will make a big impact.

And poppy accessories like this brightly colored lamp.

I’m not sure I could live with this rug, but tie-dyed fabrics and batik style prints are very in right now, so they are keeping in line with what’s happening in the market.

Without even changing the wall color, they create a completely different space in under nine hours.
