Everyday Luxe

Stacey and Diane have run out of ideas on what to do with their small, lower Manhattan apartment. The living area has to function as a work space for Diane, a place to hang out for Stacey, and a dining room as well. On top of the lack of space, Stacey and Diane lack definition in style. Genevieve must update the room by giving it a sense of style, while creating a room that can still serve its multitude of roles! Her plan to create a cloth wall hits a major hitch, but she manages to persevere, bringing new light to the room, defining the space with a custom work area maximizing every inch of the living room to create a functional area for all of Stacey and Diane's needs.

Modern Meets Vintage Playroom

Taryn and Mike's downstairs room is a mishmash of a space and they aren't sure how to deal with it. They want to use it as a playroom for their children, but one wall is taken up by Mike's bookshelf, the toys are hard for the kids to reach, and there isn't a comfortable place for the kids to play and the adults to sit. The room needs definition. For inspiration, Genevieve is reaching back to the past to emulate turn of the century sensibilities, giving the playroom a general store feel. Building an indoor playhouse with a classic Victorian look, adding a chalk board wall, and using a colorful braided rug will achieve the vintage look she's going for. Picture frame wallpaper with family photos in the frames and rocks for climbing will add a modern touch and give this new playroom some extra punch.

Decked Out Great Room

Chrissy is a first time homeowner with a big problem. She totally lacks design confidence.

She's ready for the house to feel more like a home with style, but she has no idea where to begin. To get the living room to where Chrissy wants it to go, Genevieve will need to take away Chrissy's design fears and get her to step outside of the neutral box she's been living in. A trial and error shopping trip creates a bump in the road, but Genevieve is up to the challenge. Giving an old sofa new flare, brightening up the room with new flooring, and decking out a boring fireplace are just a few of the design tricks that Genevieve has up her sleeve to cure Chrissy of her design phobia.
