Swanky Party Room

Perhaps the only thing better than a hilltop Los Angeles home with panoramic views of the valley is a sumptuous party room that offers up some gorgeous sightseeing of its own. Josh Temple and his team will turn a salt water aquarium into a unique wet bar backed with custom wenge shelves, build a floor to ceiling 3-D fire feature skinned in Calcutta porcelain slab, fabricate a streamlined coffee table, install rich, durable laminate floors, then glam it all up with sofas, chairs, wall unit and an oversized tri-globe chandelier studded with cut crystal dangles.

Open and Airy Kitchen

Tony and Melissa have a cramped kitchen that is sandwiched between an awkward dining area and a funky den with outdated fireplace. They'd like an open concept kitchen with storage, an island and a bar, and Josh rises to the challenge. He removes the wall between the kitchen and den, opening the space up and providing lots of natural light. He extends the new quartz countertop into the den space providing room for a breakfast bar, and he reworks the fireplace with ledge stone and a reclaimed timber mantel. He removes the awkward uppers and weird peninsula opening up the space between the kitchen and dining area, and adds a huge island with marble countertop. Finally, he creates a magnetic wall mounted pot rack and hidden bar for extra storage.

Mid-Century Music Lounge

An old faux stone fireplace is replaced with hand made subway tile and sleek white marble hearth. Worn carpet is replaced with dark hardwood floors. A custom bar with staggered shelving and hidden bar storage become the focus of the room. A new media center flanks the wall for a brand new TV. Plus, a one of a kind walnut and glass coffee table and dimensional wall panels create one hip living room.

Parlor Panache

It's a French flashback to the 30's and 40's when entertaining guests was done in impressive and luxurious parlors. Josh Temple enhances the usability of this living room and dining room by creating two sophisticated areas. First, for the living room, is an inviting cinematic sitting space featuring a fireplace accentuated by thin brick veneer and a 60-inch TV, art deco niches with a vertical aquarium backdrop, and chesterfield seating. For the dining room, there's a banquette built into a pony wall with ironwork detailing, a bar cabinet and draft tower unified with tile en pointe and sculptural spindles, a reclaimed table made from original flooring, and a hand painted silhouette of a French 75 field cannon.

Bali Bedroom Retreat

Josh Temple knows it'll take a whole lot more than a dab of concealer to renovate this makeup artist's bedroom. He'll rip through astroturf carpet remnants and a multitude of cobwebs to transform a chaotic bedroom into a Balinese retreat. In three days, the crew will craft a luxurious raised bed platform with bedside tables, new windows and a panel door all atop a renewable bamboo floor. Then they'll bring the outdoors in with a spacious deck-turned chill zone featuring a water fountain trickling down a pebbled wall, a slate skinned firebox, a copper and wood shelving unit, and a tropical reed-like table.
