Before and After: Betty's Ugly Apartment

Before and After: Betty's Ugly Apartment

I have a soft spot for makeovers, even ones on television sitcoms. Remember when I asked you if you'd ever been tricked about an apartment? Betty Suarez, one of my favorite characters on television today, certainly was. Here's what her apartment looked like upon move-in.

To see how Betty infused the apartment with her unique style (and cleaned it up!),


I love the use of the sunshine shades of yellow in Betty's apartment. The exposed brickwork, which was previously covered up with a muddled pea-soup-like paint color, is also totally charming. That bubbly, bright yellow chandelier is also perfectly poppy, and as sunny as Betty's personality. Say what you will about Betty's crazy outfits; I think her eclecticism lends itself well to her home decorating, if not her wardrobe. Are you a fan?

It must have taken Betty MONTHS to strip all of that yellow paint off of those brick. How does she find the time!!!

I love her new apartment and the touches of Mexican decor. It's so colorful and sunny and random yet the whole thing somehow works!
