    Default A rental remodel

    Kristan Cunningham, best known as one of the hosts of HGTV's “Design on a Dime,” has learned a thing or two about money-saving renovations. When the interior designer and her longtime boyfriend, Scott Jarrell, moved into a Venice canal district house last year, they faced a challenge: how to make the space their own without investing a lot of money in a rental. The challenge started in the kitchen, where the couple gave themselves a $1,000 budget.

    i'm not crazy about the framed doilies or night stands and lamps in the bedroom but other than that, i love all the other rooms. i even like the stuffy old armchairs by the window, which usually aren't my style at all.
    it's funky, eclectic and feels lived in.

    Love the space itself, but you can return the decorations to WalMart at your earliest convenience.

    the door is cool. the ceiling colour is interesting. All their stuff makes it too busy and not very peaceful. The fabric in the kitchen is going to get spaghetti sauce stains on it very quickly unless they eat out all the time.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    The building itself looks good. The decor is hideous.
