In the March issue of O, Oprah is discussing making over her California home. Ms. Winfrey feels her Santa Barbara house doesn’t accurately reflect her style or who she really is — and so, she’s getting to work with designer Rose Tarlow to come up with a more “lived in” look (or, as I like to call it — “less stuffy.”)

These photos are Oprah’s “Before” shots. If she plans on improving these rooms (they look pretty good to me!), I can’t wait to see the final results.

Oprah's Home Makeover

I’m a sucker for bookshelves. And, wow — these are spectacular! I believe Oprah is changing them, though.

The goal for this room will be to create an elegant and sophisticated space, but allow for warmth and playfulness. I guess it doesn’t do that, already?

    Oh wow these will be very interesting "before & after" photos considering the design is already so beautiful and classic already! I cannot wait to see the "afters" though, I'm sure they will be amazing!
