A Nate Berkus Makeover

7 Feb

This is such a fantastic story that I won’t try to retell it all here but I do suggest you check it out on Oprah’s website:  http://www.oprah.com/oprahshow/The-Hale-Jo-Family-Story-Video A couple of years ago when Christiana was still living in Dublin, she got a very excited phone call from her good friend, Kari, that she suspected she might be a finalist for the Nate Berkus home makeover on Oprah because one of the producers phoned her to ask some questions.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, Kari and her family won the makeover and there was a lot of excitement in their corner of the world as well as ours at the time as we waited for the show to air and the chance to see the big reveal of the magic they worked on their home.  To say he transformed it is an understatement.  I really encourage you to check out the photos on the site to see for yourself (http://www.oprah.com/home/Building-a-Dream-House ) but I have included two photos of the front of the house before and the front of the house after.  Several people mentioned to me that they liked the Ranch Re-do blog entry ( https://tillyscottage.wordpress.com/2011/01/28/ranch-re-do/ )  as so I thought this might be inspiring on more levels than just the renovation!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although I’ve  never met
Kari but I feel like I know her from hearing Christiana talk about her but also from reading her blog on life and motherhood: http://mamabloo.com/

    I have to say that it is such an amazing redo! There is so much about it that they don’t even touch on in the show. It is so well done. Love Nate!
