2. Making it Lovely - Nicole Balch is seriously good at pulling lovely interiors together in any style of home but what I love about her is that she embraces the quirks of old homes so well. She makes stylish what most would rip out. She gets me out of my box of colors. She paints walls bright and bold colors and layers them with even more colorful things yet her spaces still remain sophisticated.  [Photo Source: Making it Lovely]

Favorite makeover:   Her library...wow!

Favorite series: Her "Make it Yours Series" where she takes piece you could buy and gives styleboards for different styles.
