If you consider reality TV art (stick with us here), then this is the perfect example of life imitating it. As the host of A&E's Sell This House for nine seasons, Roger Hazard used to spend his days helping homeowners fix up their houses with paint, furniture staging, and whatever else it took to sell it. Now, Hazard spends his time in Sharon Springs, New York, with his husband, Chris Stout-Hazard, and they've focused on renovating their the past year.
Before, this 160-year-old Italianate Victorian home had a ho-hum gray shell which provided little curb appeal. Laminate flooring also left much to be desired, and the walls were either as bare as can be or, worse, they sported less-than-appealing wood paneling or gloomy paint colors. Plus, bulky walls made for dysfunctional living, and random nooks wasted valuable space.

But no more! Now, the home is full of color and life (literally, just look at their happy pup!). A Scandinavian-inspired living room with industrial furnishings is just off of the polka dot entryway. Further back, a few select walls were knocked down in the kitchen to open up the cooking space, where they can whip up a feast to later serve in their vintage-inspired dining room. Finally, a sunny master suite stays mostly white, but clever lattice wall panels and deep navy accents turn it into a room you actually want to unwind in.
