…I think the “before” pictures look better than the “after” pictures. This is one of those times:

I actually enjoy the bed linens in the first picture and the lime green chair in the corner. I’m also not a rustic beach wood fan. I appreciate it, it’s just not for me. Also, the first picture has a sleek, gray cat in it. In my experience with sites like D*S, decor8, and Apartment Therapy, having a living being prancing around your rad furnishings is always a plus. Even if it’s your toddler doing a blurry dance in the background or your pet fish or favorite house plant sitting looking bored in the corner. Yes, I just compared toddlers to houseplants, I’m just saying if the bottom picture had a cool Boston Terrier looking coy and pensive on the bed I may not even have made this post.

Oh fate.

    I agree with the before looks better than the after. One only thing I really dislike about the first photo is the metal poster bed but that’s an easy fix.

    I totally agree with this and had to do a double take when I saw it on Design*Sponge

    I so agree. I thought I’d misread the ‘before’ and ‘after’ labels. Maybe they were just looking for a change, rather than style improvement? Madness . . .

    I agree. While I don’t like the bed frame in the first photo, I like the room better. Not sure why. I think it’s the color of the walls.

    I like the after BUT I don’t like the drapey ceiling thing; maybe I’d like it better with a chandelier or something cuz I get WHY they put it there. AND HELLO! they have better kept that green chair in that room!! SERIOUSLY! Also, it bothers me that the after pic is not at the same angle.. what’s going on between the windows? Hmmm…
