Before & After: Eugenia’s Eclectic Colonial Makeover
Eugenia Sangiovanni recently moved into a new home in Montrose, California. With two bedrooms and two baths, a full kitchen, formal living space and den to fill… she had her work cut out for her.

Jen’s Bright and Happy Austin Abode

This weekend, choose a view you don’t love and see if you can make it a little more lovely!
