Remember this? Roeschel’s living room was part of our DIY+ e-design consultation with interior designer Jason Martin, recently named one of House Beautiful’s Next Wave 20 interior designers.  Roeschel has finally finished and emailed us with the results. It’s an amazing transformation! A job well down Roeschel. Such a beautiful and calm space. Casually elegant and very liveable it’s certainly no cookie cutter room with vintage finds and lots of Roeschel’s personality shining through. Follow renovation adventures on her blog DIY Showoff especially the before and afters of her own home, a charming 1927 farmhouse. I particularly love her barn!


And because all of us just love to play with our photos here’s Roschel’s dreamy take on an equally dreamy room. Thanks again Roeschel for sharing the final results.


Helena says:

nice transformation, feels so airy now and light

Yeye says:

I really love how the core furniture and carpet are from the before, and everything else is built around those colors and exist in harmony. Red is punchy but it made the couches look so tacky. The afters are amazing! Nice work!

Tami says:

Wow!! What a wonderful and much needed transformation.

Tanya says:

Amazing changes!!!

Tara says:

So amazing! I can’t believe how different it looks. The furniture is the same and yet, it’s not. What a great use of paint to re-hab a place. I’m very impressed. Well done, well done.

Roeshel says:

Aw! I’m catching up and just saw this. Thanks for sharing my makeover and the shout out! The before was embarrassing but with your help and Jason’s inspiration, it’s a huge improvement and now I love this space. It is so much more comfortable and so "us". 😉

Thanks for the sweet comments too ladies…reassurance always feels so good.
