Have you watched I Am Cait yet? I have and I found it to be a very interesting look at a super specific and important period in time for Caitlyn Jenner, as she starts to navigate life anew. There is a segment in one of the episodes all about the makeover of her Malibu home, the first decorating project she's done as a single woman after years of married life and keeping up with the Kardashians.

The makeover, along with many other aspects of her life right now, is presented as both emotional and exciting, and for lovers of design, it's interesting to see the through-lines that connect her home now to her home before.

Both incarnations of the room clearly show a similar taste and color palette, but there is a definite shift to a glammier, luxurious look. It's more boutique-y, less rustic. Overall, it simply feels more personal, more romantic and fashion-forward. The change in the use of space also takes the room to a much more dramatic place; that single 12-foot sofa is a stunner! Many of the functional pieces — such as the small tables and the lighting — are very pretty, they are sculptural and decorative in a modern, organic way. The open areas in the layout help to highlight all the texture, mixed finishes, and the artwork used throughout the room.
