The Unsolicited Bachelorette Mansion Makeover by Yours Truly

For over 10 years, dozens of Bachelors and Bachelorettes have walked through the doors of Villa de la Vina, a 500-square-foot six-bedroom, nine-bath home nestled in the Malibu mountains. The custom home, built in 2005, boasts a Spanish revival style with quite the array of finishes, ranging from Moroccan tiles to Indian archways.

For years, the mansion has served its purpose as a place where a cast of hopefuls go to find love. But as we near the finale of The Bachelorette's 12th season, we can't help but get the decorating itch for this castle-like manse, which reads more gaudy than sophisticated and modern. So what would our revisited Bachelor mansion look like? From classic driveways to an updated kitchen and a brighter color palette, we've reinvented the famous home, if only to appease our discerning eye. Take the tour of our very own imaginary Bachelor mansion and tell us, which one do you prefer?
