It’s a dichotomy that I think about quite a bit when making my own decisions for decorating. Without choice, I live with a cluttered sense of temporariness in my decor, shifting between ideas….  if I had no limitations of budget or time to work and rework my living space, would it be any different, or would I pull together cohesive rooms with timeless appeal?

This was a fun exercise. I’d love to see more banging ass Former Domino Decoration Editor’s places undergoing a revamp.

  • The new room keeps its eclectic style but everything was lightened up. Its interesting to see what was replaced and what was kept. Of course I like the 2nd room better.

  • I like the tufted room a wee bit better. But they both look like places that a much older person would live in. Or maybe my grandma was just unusually hip.
