Editors' note: Tarek and Christina El Moussa are a busy couple! Even with brand-new baby Braden, daughter Taylor and a whole crop of fresh remodels, the Flip or Flop hosts still found time to renovate their home from top to bottom. Here, Christina offers a sneak peek of her favorite rooms in the bright, modern home. 

When we purchased our home it was all brown and orange. When we decided to renovate, we changed everything to my favorite colors: black, white and gray. Using the same palette throughout the home creates a cohesive, neutral look. 

The Media Room

We turned one room into a movie theater. Every Friday night, we order pizza and have movie night with Taylor. So fun! 

I love this trellis pattern and I have a slight wallpaper obsession. (Maybe more than slight?) We carried the trellis wallpaper from the movie room onto the black entry doors. 

The Man Cave

Next up: The billiards room! We went with more of a masculine, rustic look here. During holidays and parties, the guys love hanging out in this room, shooting pool and watching sports.

The Grand Entrance

Our staircase is one of my favorite features. We did custom wainscoting with a beautiful, silvery metallic wallpaper above. We added an oversized lantern chandelier right in the center of the spiraling staircase. 

The flooring throughout the downstairs is an Italian travertine. It has a lot of warm gray tones, which I love. 

The Dining Room

Our dining room is very rustic glam, with a rock wall and a giant crystal chandler. I usually leave the table set throughout the year, since we only use this room for holidays and parties.  

The Kitchen

We went with black alder custom cabinets and white marble counters in the kitchen. A smoke crystal chandelier hangs over the kitchen table. We also did an oversized refrigerator and wine fridge. 

The living room just beyond the kitchen is still a work in progress. We have some pieces being built for the back wall right now, but we added a larger fireplace with a simple white mantle and the white built-in entertainment center with the glass doors. I also am a huge fan of the soft silver shag rug under the charcoal gray sectional.  

The Powder Room

Again, our powder bath has more of the trellis wallpaper that I love! We did a dark gray cabinet and white Quartz counter. 

Thanks, Christina! See more of Christina and Tarek's design work in new episodes of Flip or Flop, airing Thursdays at 9p | 8c.
