Create a Chic Living Space
The first challenge the designers face is to redesign two bedrooms, a dining room, a living room and a sunroom in their Nashville lake house — with 31 work hours and a budget of $15,000.

This room, more so than any other room in this week’s challenge, demonstrates how difficult designing in a team can be, as well as how important it is to develop a strong idea and follow it through with great execution. Turning this cold sunroom void of personality into a cozy and casual hangout space is a superb idea, and while there are glimpses of good design, the overall idea is never fully realized. Dark brown paint weighs down the space that is full of bright and beautiful windows, and acid-green accent paint in the bar area clashes with the dark green felt on the pool table.
