Makeovers are laborious affairs. Rarely do they happen overnight without a massive behind-the-scenes remodeling team. So, we were a bit stunned to see this Los Angeles home redo by Target home style expert and stylist Emily Henderson, which was completed in a single weekend (with a design team of three, and a budget of about $3,000). The dilemma? Couple Erin and Carson had recently bought a place and moved in, but their furniture was too big and awkward for the new space. Plus, they'd outgrown a lot of it.
Click through for the exclusive story, all of Henderson's styling tips, and a video of the whole process, from clearing out to styling. The result is a light-filled, midcentury-style space, with a living and dining room that seamlessly combine old and new pieces. Our one remaining question is whether she'll do our place next.
