Sam DeBianchi from Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing Miami” met up with realtor and “The Bachelorette” contestant Ryan Beckett at Hive: Home, Gift & Garden in Palm Beach, Florida. They revealed their favorite trade-secret paint tricks, accessories and design elements that will make your home look like a million dollars without spending a fortune. 

Ryan Beckett:  You only have one chance at a first impression and one of the best returns on investment is your front door, and that really speaks to the importance of a first impression. You can go to Home Depot or Lowe’s and get a really nice front door that really dresses it up. The other advice that I give is fresh exterior paint.
