I love a great before and after.
Especially when it comes to interior design.
With interiors, you really appreciate the “after” so much more after you've seen where it all began. Knowing the story behind the images can really help you understand the challenges and goals of the project so you can LEARN how to do it yourself!
Here are some great before and afters I found this past weekend:
"Designer, stylist, and HGTV star Emily Henderson and her assistant Orlando Soria transformed their clients’ Silver Lake, Los Angeles dining room from a multiple-personality hodgepodge with beige walls to a warm and dynamic statement space Henderson dubs “traditional with a twist.”
We quizzed the Huffington Post contributing editor and host of Secrets of a Stylist on the crucial tips behind this makeover."
Abby Manchesky, one of my designer connections I met online, did this nice makeover on a kitchen without painting the wood cabinets.
It’s so much lighter and brighter and up to date!
"My clients had moved into one of the model homes in their neighborhood and hadn't made any changes since. If you met Lori, you would see she's super stylish and put together. This kitchen just didn't reflect her personality at all.
That's when I swoop in to the rescue! My clients were incredibly easy to work with and everything just moved along very quickly."
Sherry Hart, another designer connection I’ve made via blogging and Facebook, posted an amazing bedroom makeover on her blog, Design Indulgence. Along with her design magic, she used some great retail finds to create a beautiful space without spending much money.
"When I got a call about this guest bedroom makeover, the owner had already purchased bedding, bedside lamps, a Kubu chair and a mirror, and she had painted the room. She and her husband also diy'ed a headboard!
Being a working Mom with a young baby I think she felt overwhelmed to get it pulled together before company would arrive in a little over 3 weeks.
