Luxury Mountain Home One-Day Makeover

Luxury Mountain Home One-Day Makeover
This luxury mountain home in the Colorado Rockies minutes from Denver, went from from good to gorgeous in just a few hours.



A One-Day Makeover is a simple way to change the look of your home without buying anything new. Most people have more than enough furniture and furnishings and just need a little help pulling it all together.

Living Room Before


Living Room After

What Happened in this Room?

  • Loveseats were angled slightly to reveal the pretty windows framing either side of the fireplace and the spectacular mountain view outside

  • A handsome area rug adds just the right amount of color to a neutral palette and draws the eye toward the fireplace

  • A small trunk serves as a living room coffee table without competing for attention

  • One elegant plant on the hearth is just the right accent to lead the eye up toward the mantle

  • The vase and tiny box were replaced by larger objects, more in scale with the fireplace mantle. A round carving on one side, and a similar sized print on the other (all in a consistent neutral color scheme) balance the display

  • Note that the art on the right leans against the wall and overlaps the middle picture. Not all pictures have to hang on nails

  • A mid-sized plant between the windows adds a touch of green and softens the corner

Master Bedroom Before

What Happened in this Room?

  • A large white dresser which previously blocked entry into the room was moved to the foot of the bed for a cleaner look

  • Larger art over the bed in the same colors as bedding has a stunning impact on entry

  • Shelves on the side of the bed have been rearranged to show off the side bar, a very special feature in a bedroom

  • Picture is moved to the wall above the bed adding more interest

  • Trunk is moved to the foot of the bed, adding layers of color and making an adjoining wall less crowded

  • Drape is removed from the nightstand for a cleaner look

  • Roman shades are raised to allow more light into the room

  • Small plants on the nightstands add life and color
