Amanda Nisbet's 1 Day Bedroom Makeover in the New House Beautiful

It was great to see the 1 Day Makeover series return in the first issue of House Beautiful with new Editor in Chief, Newell Turner, at the lead. I hope this becomes a regular feature. Amanda Nisbet's makeover of this bedroom is inspiring for both the final result and the tutorial it provides. My absolute favorite parts of the design are the two lanterns flanking the window and the demilune console. Oh, and the striking headboard too!

My issue came yesterday - I love it when it arrives before it hits the newstands. Hope you've got your copy handy for beach - pool reading this weekend. Happy 4th!

Great issue and I read every little detail about this bedroom makeover. It doesn't seems quite possible this happened in one day! Does that mean the rest of us designers have to step up our game?!

This makeover was my favourite part of the issue and I too, read every detail as I am a big Amanda Nisbet fan. I love what she did in such a short timeframe.

Happy 4th of July weekend!

The lanterns were my favorite part too, oh, and the headboard and the lamps and well I loved it all. Because I am always thinking of others I am willing to offer my home to Amanda for her next makeover. This way she won't have to schlepp around looking for a place to spruce up!

Oh shoot. I ordered mags from my grandaughter's fund raiser. I got "Traditional Home". I should have ordered this one. This is a gorgeous room. I love makeovers!

So funny....as soon as I saw the picture pop up on your blog, I said to myself...those lanterns and headboard were my favorite! And, so did you!! I have devoured this first issue with Newell at the helm and I loved it. I think the room (with more furniture) does indeed look bigger. What a great article and issue!!! xo, Elizabeth

I was so excited to see the issue in my mailbox--but I am saving it to take to the beach this week! Glad to know that it is a good one! Thanks for the peek as well as your insights.
Do you know why Stephen Drucker was moved to Town and Country?
