Donato is a hard working hairstylist with little time for anything except his family and work. Married to Grace, his attractive wife of 21 years, the couple enjoys the dolce vita when they can. But they are homebodies at heart; doting on their two young sons and their extended close-knit Italian family. Grace has been bugging Donato for ages to do "something" With their bedroom, but he's not big on D.I.Y. While Donato is working at the salon, slaving over a hot hair dryer, little does he know that Grace has smuggled Facelift into the couple's bedroom to work on a sizzling new look!
Although the furniture is expensive, its dated elegance screams Eighties passé. The wrought iron 'Fairy Princess' headboard and the overly fancy flounces on the windows are going to be replaced with a more contemporary look.
The bedroom makeover looks sophisticated and sensuous. The simple design, modern and chic. We freshened up the attractive white dressers with a shimmering silver trim and pewter handles, adding legs for streamlining and height. The padded headboard (comfy for night-time reading) the full-length curtains and the en-suite bathroom, were done in neutral tones for understated elegance. Finally, the wall-to-wall beige carpet was ripped out and replaced with a rich dark warm-to-the-touch cork flooring by Torlys. Bellissima!
