Teresa Giudice is giving her entire life, including her home, a makeover following her split from soon-to-be ex-husband Joe Giudice.

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.”

Jimmy says they  “got rid of a lot,” and brightened up the rooms by lightening the paint and the drapes.
“All my furniture is there,” he continued. “I have the two huge sofas and the two huge ottomans in the great room, and then we have some additional furniture in the foyer.”
For now, Jimmy only revamped Teresa’s foyer, dining room, and great room, but he plans to tackle her bedroom in the near future.
“We started that a little bit, but it’s on pause. We’ll start it back up again when this is all over,” Jimmy said. “We’ll go back in the house when we can and put in my custom furniture, and I picked chandeliers, cocktail tables, rugs, artwork, these huge lamps I want to put all over the place, and we’re going to incorporate a grand piano. We have beds, but no one is allowed in the house right now. But Teresa is always like, when is my furniture coming?”
As for the marital bed, she shared with Joe that’s gone according to the interior design pro.

“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.”
