The Real Housewives of New Jersey star has given her Montville, NJ mansion a major makeover now that she’s a single mom of four.
According to interior designer Jimmy DeLaurentis, who has also worked with fellow Bravolebs Dolores Catania, Jennifer Aydin, and Lisa Vanderpump, Teresa wanted to bring some much-needed light into her mega home.
“She was like my house needs a lot of work, it’s dark, it’s filled with old Italian stuff, Joe is gone,” Jimmy told E! “She was just like, I need to feel lighter in this house. It’s a huge house, everything was doom and gloom and dark, and she had memories of a lot of stuff, and she just wanted to brighten it up.”
“The furniture needed updating,” according to Jimmy, so he replaced Teresa’s old pieces with “really sexy furniture.”
He added, “She took me through the house room by room, and she said, you see this, this needs to go, and it’s a monster house. She wanted a whole new feel. And I said the first thing you got to do is lighten up all these walls, and the windows had these big heavy drapes. She called a painter that day, and the painters were there, and I walked the painters through the house that very same day.”
“She has a new bed. She went to one store, one shop and bought all of this furniture 18 or 19 years ago, and she was like, I have got to get rid of that,” Jimmy relayed. “She is in a whole different place now than she was then. She is doing amazing, working her ass off.”
