I love a good before and after photo set. Nothing quite demonstrates the power of design quite like the photographic evidence of a pre- and post-rehab. You can imagine my delight when I came across Randall's flickr set documenting the rehab of his girlfriend's 500 sf condo.
Randall initially started working with a bigger budget and general contractor. When the budget was slashed (thanks recession!) and the contractor didn't work out, Randall decided to do the rehab himself. Luckily, he is a furniture designer with a very deep bag of tricks. By mixing affordable pieces from IKEA with his own handiwork, Randall has a taken a dull, dated studio and given it a modern, clean look.
