Most of you have seen my designs over the past 20 years on HGTV, DIY, History and FYI. I am sharing this transformation because it is so easy and affordable and yet so dramatic. Check out the before and after image. I simply mimicked the frame molding above the chair rail, painted the walls Home Depot Behr Marquee - Park Avenue and kept the homeowners white trim. By choosing this color pallet I was able to open the space up giving the illusion of grandness. A little bit of staging and TADA!
