In this must-see makeover, designer Emily Griffin takes you inside a cheerful home packed with personality. See how she transformed a dated Victorian with a mix of color, pattern and texture. Playful design elements — like sunny wallpaper in the entryway, a bright yellow English roll-arm sofa in the living room and quirky sconces in the dining room — add whimsy to the space’s original bones. Plus, you’ll be awestruck by the impressive kitchen makeover, where a moveable island, ample counter space and innovative storage shine.
