REALTOR ® Magazine, the official publication of the National Association of Realtors, has just published online interviews with eight of our wonderful Decorating Den Interiors design professionals from around the country to share with you some room makeover secrets.
Freelance writer Barbara Ballinger, author of several books on real estate, architecture and remodeling, asked each “to show us a single room they designed. They shared before and after photos, furnishing costs and each space’s challenges and advantages. You’ll hear where they splurged and when they cut back, as well as additional tips to guide you through the process of completing a room,” she wrote.
Featured are two living rooms, two master bedrooms, a dining room, a kitchen, a lower level family room and a balcony.
