In This Episode

Sally Armstrong's Main Floor Reno

H&H senior design editor Sally Armstrong shows off her newly updated family home. Peek inside the entryway with graphic marble floor, small powder room with fun yellow wallpaper, inviting dining room, bright family room with sliding doors to the backyard, and hardworking new mudroom for the kids.

Dated Condo Makeover

Designers Sarah Richardson and Thomas Smythe take us through a 1980s condo they updated for one of their TV producers, Michael Prini. See how they transformed the dark space into a bright, inviting home filled with mid-century modern pieces and personal touches. Learn their tips on where to save and where to splurge — from affordable Ikea cabinets to graphic floor tiles and custom marble countertops.
