I'm Hooked on Virtual Design Makeovers from Alt-erior Design

Hi! Welcome to my blog today!

If you are here for the first time, visiting from Hooked on Houses, Hooked on Toile Party, thank you for visiting and I am very glad that you came! And if you have been here before, well, I am also glad you stopped by...the more, the merrier! Let's keep the party rolling! I just love the Toile Rain Boots that Julia had on her blog, too cute!

This week, I am hooked on virtual design makeovers from Alt-erior Designs, which belongs to my new friend, Ali Mae.

How could I not be? A couple of weeks ago, I posted a picture of my brick home and told all of my readers that I would like to paint it. A day later, I received an email from Ali Mae, with a virtual makeover of my brick home and how it would look if it were painted and had a trellis and porch curtains, here, take a look...

She took my home from this:

To this!

Isn't that gorgeous? And it's so life-like, it really does give you a good idea of what the house would look like painted. She does fabulous work!

Then, this week, I posted that I need to pick out a paint color for my Living Room and again, Ali Mae sent me another virtual makeover, she's amazing!!!

My current Living Room:

Some color choices for my Living Room:

I am so glad that Ali Mae did the virtual makeover of my Living Room, because I was leaning towards cream, but I can now SEE that cream would not really be the best choice. I like the khaki and brown tones much better, they are so much warmer and cozier, which is exactly what I want for that room.

If you are interested in a virtual design makeover for your home, visit Ali Mae's blog, Alt-erior Designs for more information and pricing.

To see what everyone else is hooked on today, visit Julia's blog party.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I'm loving your virtual makeovers lately!! - I agree I like the tan colors in you room.

I'm looking for a site where I can play with rearranging the furniture in a room - do you know one?


Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Those virtual makeovers are fabulous. Think of all the paint it would've saved me over the years if I could've done this first!

So nice to see you at my party today, Bella. Have a great weekend! :-)

The paint colors are beautiful - my favorite is the bottom right (dark on one wall, light on the other).

Tidymom - Better Homes & Gardens used to have something like that on their website. I haven't visited in a while so it may not be there anymore. It was called "room arranger" or something similar.

YOU are the one who is awesome. I'm flattered. I just got your email last night--guess i'll have to come up with some pricing :D

Wow, the house looks great painted, and it's really a fabulous way to play around and try out some different looks..., I agree the darker color (bottom right) works so much better than creme.

Boy, she just saved your time and money! I love a quick and easy way to see what something might look like. You didn't ask, but I vote for the green. With some great pillows incorporating the green (and other colors??), it will really pop! Have fun and thanks for sharing the info, -susan

I think the makeovers are right on target. When does the house painting start? Thanks forr sharing!

I totally agree......the darker color in your living room is the best! It looks great. Who would have thought that you could have a virtual makeover??

I gotta check her services out! We have such a dilemma with painting because we have an open floor plan with connecting walls throughout the home. We also have a variety of colors in our furniture. I don't know what to do - I'm sure I can use Ali Mae's services!
