Nate Berkus vs. the "Ugliest Room in America"

Aired on 11/11/2003 | CC
You've never seen anything like this before. In 2003, Molly and Eric won The Oprah Show's Ugliest Room in America contest. The floor of their award-winning den was wall-to-wall carpet in a garish shade of red. The basement walls weren't any better: One half was the same color as the carpet, and the other half was paneled in dark brown wood. Lucky for Molly and Eric, interior design guru Nate Berkus knew just what to do.

Here, in this archival clip, Nate turns Molly and Eric's red disaster into one of the most fabulous basements he's ever seen.
