Dawn Futrell needs a space as versatile as she is. In addition to her full-time job, she makes jewelry and has started dabbling in fashion design and her living quarters aren't set up to accommodate her hobbies.
Interior designer Kristan Cunningham arrives to check out Futrell's mismatched apartment. She needs a better arrangement to work on her hobbies and wants her living room to be both modern and functional. As a renter she's not permitted to paint or remove the white blinds, so color must be brought in through other means. The window treatments need updating and her wobbly coffee table doesn't work well for her dining needs. Cunningham then meets with design coordinators Spencer Anderson and David Sheinkopf to discuss the issues and divvy up the projects. Anderson is put in charge of creating a sewing table that'll double for dining space and Sheinkopf volunteers to update the coffee table making it stylish, sturdy and large enough to use as an informal dining surface. Cunningham is responsible for bringing color into the room without painting the walls.
