Hooked on... before and afters!

Don't you just love a good makeover? I just love a good "before and after." Such a sense of accomplishment and completion.

Here's some inspiring rooms that turned out just oh so good!

One common theme in all of these (that I just realized) is the use of blue... I wouldn't consider myself a "blue" person. But I guess I am... seeing that my living room is painted blue (could have been my first clue!). I love that little blue vase in the office makeover and the very subtle blues and greys in the rug. The blue in the second makeover is a little more "in your face" - but seems very invigorating to me. Plus, notice the red splashes... which I do love! And the blue in the last room, the entry, just says "ahhhhh... relax, you are home."

That hallway makeover is unbelievable! Hard to believe it's the same space, isn't it? Made my eyes pop. I do love a good before and after. Thanks! :-)

Very nice post! I liked the office the best! I wonder what she does with all the office clutter though? said...

Love before and afters too, and the color blue, it's just so fresh and soothing, or rich and nautical, depending on the shade/hue.
