In this makeover, designer Natalie Chong shows how to update a traditional tudor home without losing its original character. Using a fresh coat of paint, modern hardware and updated upholstery, the family home went from dark and dated to bright and inviting. See how the designer paid homage to the abode’s handsome wood panelling with a cool-toned palette, mid-century modern chair and leather ottoman in the sitting room. Natalie proves that with a few current-day elements, an older home can take on new life.
