We’re looking for a trendy design enthusiast who needs a home makeover! We are partnering with a major home brand to give a few lucky readers a full-room refresh. If you live in Chicago, Dallas, LA, or NYC and have a space in mind, read on. 

Apartment Therapy’s design experts will makeover one room in your home, selecting furniture and decor, and documenting it all in a before-and-after photo shoot. (You will not be on camera.)

The priority areas for this project are living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms. If selected, you’ll receive new decor and furniture for one of these spaces in your home.

You must be willing to remove all furniture and decor from the featured areas and take photos of the empty spaces for us to use in our content. We will only be showing new furniture and decor from our advertising partner.
