Making the Most of Outdated Decor

If you google "pink tiled bathroom" you'll find that most people invest in ripping the dated pink tiles out to transform their bathrooms into the perfect spa like oasis.  But what if it's not in the budget?  You need the vision like the very creative Lizzie Bailey, who I was lucky to have worked with years ago!  She embraced her pink tiles and updated the vibe using "Fireworks" wallpaper by Albert Hadley for an amazing pretty in pink result that was featured in Lonny Magazine.

On to the next outdated challenge... tongue and groove wooden paneling on walls.  If done right they could look great and add the perfect amount of texture to a room but if done wrong they could darken even a bright room.  Some people opt to completely remove or sheetrock over them.  Another option is to paint them a brighter happier color.
