Before and Afters- Lonny Edition

If you're like me, you're a sucker for a good Before and After.  Who doesn't love to see a room that's not up to par turn into something beautiful?  Lucky for us, Lonny Magazine featured quite a few in their October Makeover Issue.  I've highlighted a few of my favorites below.  Enjoy!

Here's the kitchen in the home of Michael C. Hall (otherwise known as Dexter).  That gray...and those windows...

Here's his master bedroom.  Look how much the room changed by opening up the ceiling and shifting a window.

Because we all know how much we love HomeGoods, here's a Before and After Lonny did with one of their associate editor's Brooklyn master bedroom.  It has me wanting to go shopping NOW.

Those are two different sets of curtains (one solid, one patterned) that were hemmed together to accommodate her tall windows--a great trick for the budget conscious!  

And we can't forget the beside tables.  I need those lamps!

Here's a great example of how a rope mirror doesn't always have to go in a coastal theme.  I love all of the textures in the After photo.

The last one I'll leave you with is the home of Austin designer Elizabeth Mullen.  I wish I had a Before of the stairs below.  When Mollen and her family moved it, It was covered in carpet from the floor to the walls.  She swapped the threads for a coat of Benjamin Moore's Ebony King, and the transformation definitely looks royal.

Lastly, here's a Before and After of her kitchen.  I love the new pendant lights and DIY gold dipped stools.

Another excellent example of what a little new paint, tile and lighting can do.

I hope all of these amazing transformations bring as much inspiration to you as they did to me.  To see more on today's Before and Afters and many others, head over to Lonny.  

I finally ordered a new dining room light fixture so hopefully I'll have my own Before and Afters to show you soon!  Not surprisingly, I didn't go with any of the ones I mentioned previously.  It's actually a miracle I pulled the trigger on one period.  It's amazing how much more decisive I am when it comes to other people's homes :)

You guys have a great weekend, and don't forget today is the last day to enter our Fall Table Give-Away.  Good luck!
