In the series $1K Dream Room, host Will Taylor uses a modest budget of $1,000 to turn drab spaces into dream apartments.

In this week’s episode of $1K Dream Room, Will Taylor of Bright Bazaar is helping roommates Clay and Rachel liven up the living room of their New York City apartment.

With lots of natural light, a fireplace and a charming brick wall, Taylor has a lot of character and personality to work with in the room. But he only has one day and $1,000 to get the job done.

Clay and Rachel emphasizes they want a maximalist, modern vibe for the living room, filled with lots of artwork and plants.

With a full-sized rug, several pieces of artwork, a gorgeous patterned chair and a fun DIY coffee table, Taylor is able to completely transform the space. Will gave the room that “punch of personality” it so badly needed.
