In this must-see before and after, designer Laurie Blyskis takes you behind-the-scenes of her dramatic home renovation. See how she overhauled the traditional abode into a modern farmhouse with touches of natural wood, brushed brass hardware and vintage elements. For a grand first impression, Laurie added lotus wallpaper to the entryway, and continued the drama into the open-concept living room and kitchen with navy lower cabinets, black French-style lanterns and a spacious island, perfect for holiday hosting. Plus, you’ll love how Laurie decorates for Christmas with plenty of fresh greenery, pops of blush and cream and a dash of festive sparkle.
