Beatrice's family room
You don't need a construction crew and a second mortgage to transform the place you live into a place you'll love. Designer Nate Berkus says that in as little as one hour, you can make noticeable improvements to any problem area.

Oprah challenged Nate to take "easy update" ideas from his new book, Home Rules, and put them to the test. He was assigned two rooms and given strict instructions—the transformations had to be construction free and happen in just an hour, a day or a weekend.

For his first challenge, Nate tackles Beatrice's sectional sofa and storage issues.
