Makeover of the Week

There is nothing we love more at Porchlight Interiors than a good makeover. With a few small changes, and in such as short time, a room can take on a whole new look and feel which is so satisfying to see. For this reason, we thought it would be a good idea to include a weekly makeover post. This first one is a Manhatten appartment belonging to Elizabeth Fiore and styled by Lance Boyd found on O at Home website. Hope you enjoy...

What a difference! It's amazing how decluttering, rearranging furniture and adding beautiful accessories make such a big impact. Adding some colour with the floor rug and soft blue curtains has turned a boring room into a room with simple, classic style.

The transformation is fantastic! Agree with Kimberlee the Louis chair looks great!

The change of paint color on the walls in the final photo does it for me, it just completes beautifully all the changes up that point. Great to see most (if not all) of the original furnishings used. Thanks for a really interesting post.
