While Drew and Jonathan definitely go for a fresh, updated look, they always opt for timeless choices, especially when it comes to the more permanent decisions. For example, these kitchen cabinets are sleek and on-trend, but their crisp, white color will ensure they never look dull or dated.

Pair antiques with trendy pieces, like the brothers did with this gorgeous wood cabinet and stylish patterned chair. Drew frequently uses this strategy to make a space feel more personalized. The best part? It usually helps keep your budget in check, too.

Work With What You’ve Got

Yes — even if it’s a 70-year-old carport. Can you believe the bros transformed this once critter-infested garage into an ultra-functional workshop?

Storage is Key

The Scott brothers love golf, so they designed their very own backyard putting green at their Las Vegas home. If you’re an avid crafter, carve out a crafting space. Have a green thumb? Make sure your backyard leaves plenty of space for gardening.

Accentuate Your Home’s Character

Here, Drew chose accent pillows that picked up the hues in the home’s gorgeous stained-glass window. The lesson? When you have bones that beautiful, don’t mess with them — draw attention to them.

Don’t Forget About Your Most Loyal Companion(s)

White Doggie Feeder and Storage Cabinet

If your furry friend plays a big role in your life, why leave them out of your renovation? Drew and Jonathan incorporated this genius doggy station into their client’s home to keep the pup’s feeding area clean and tidy.

Drew and Jonathan know how to make a space shine, and it’s definitely not by using ho-hum light fixtures. Here, a bedazzled chrome chandelier adds some sparkle to a seating area.

Be Selective When Choosing Paint

Choose a paint color that reflects the mood you’d like to achieve. The Scott brothers completely renovated this master bathroom, choosing soft blue walls to create a calm, spa-like atmosphere.
