This room looks as if Tracee and Jennifer threw everything but the kitchen sink at it. Although eclectic design is a wonderful and very smart way to go with a transformation, a great designer will ultimately find a way to pull disparate elements together. They valiantly attempt to include a wide variety of furnishings in their space, from the clean-lined sofa and outdoor metal coffee table to the ornate arm chairs and painted mannequin on the mantel, but eventually come up short because they can not find a way to pull all of their very disparate elements together with a central color, fabric, wood tone or idea. Teamwork is a key component of challenges and this transformation clearly shows a team in distress and unable to work together.
