Dolores Catania helped design a dream house for her boyfriend, David Principe. Throughout the building process — which she spearheaded with her ex Frank Catania — The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member shared the progress on the New Jersey home. But when Dolores returned to the house on November 23, it looked like Christmas elves had been working there rather than a construction crew.
Sharing a peek inside the dining room, the mother of two revealed the start of a holiday home makeover. "Look, it's so exciting," she said, showing the golden candles clustered on the table. On the credenza, glittering reindeer appeared beside a lush garland — and that was just the start of it.
Moving to the grand staircase, Dolores panned over red ribbons and lit-up garlands decking the bannister. "It's simple, but it's very elegant," she said.A team of pros from RYZ Designs was still hard at work in the house, so Dolores vowed to show off the finished result later.
But in the meantime, it's undeniable: David's house is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
