Top 20 Before & Afters of All Time: #19 A Colorful MoHo Home

by Grace Bonney

Today’s 19th spot on the countdown of the 20 most popular Design*Sponge Before & Afters of all time continues today with blogger Kari Firak‘s Moho home — a phrase that she describes as, “Modern boho — like equal parts Stevie Nicks and Devo.” I am a sucker for a pale pink wall, so this combo of pale pink walls and vintage salmon pink fiberglass Krueger chairs got me right away. I love the way this makeover utilizes simple changes like paint color and area rugs — it’s a great reminder that you don’t have to rip out floors and walls to make something feel fresh and new again. xo, Grace
