Before image of a dated living room with an old fireplace and ugly floral couches.

Big difference, right? The overall look is still traditional, but it is executed in a way that feels contemporary and inviting. And some beachy accents give the space some extra personality. And it was all done on a shoestring budget! Head over to Elle Decor to see the rest of this dramatic makeover.
