Before/After: A Lesson in Paint and Scale by Chango & Co.

Susana Simonpietri, creative director for New York interior design firm Chango & Co., knows how to transform a space.  One thing I love about her company's website is that instead of just showing a portfolio of their work, they also show a great deal of before and after pictures of their projects.  It's here that you can get a true grasp of what a good eye, great scale and great color can do for a space.
