This apartment in West Hollywood suffered from a total lack of charm. We used the client's charcoal-gray bedspread as a jumping-off point to craft a plan.


In one day and on a budget of $100, my good friend Igael Gurin-Malous and I created a simple but striking ombre wall treatment with three paint colors: gray, salmon pink and light gray.


When newlyweds Scott and Chelsea Iwatta bought a townhouse in Costa Mesa, Calif., they had a big issue in the bedroom. While the archway between the bedroom and bathroom was charming, there was no door and no privacy.


I called on my friend Sean Genrich, who's a carpenter, to help me construct a solution that would be inexpensive and solve the privacy problem. In one day and on a budget of $300 we built and installed a yellow sliding door.


While charming, this Los Angeles bedroom had no pizzazz. A wood accent wall was just the solution to add a rustic, modern touch in this Spanish-style home.


In one afternoon and on a budget of $1,000 I recruited Thad Mills, a local carpenter, to make this bedroom backdrop clean and dramatic with weathered gray wood paneling.


One of the most shocking aspects about buying a home can be exploring the cost of custom window treatments. I stepped to help first time homeowners find an affordable option to keep natural light in their kitchen, but lose the nosy neighbor next door.


Our solution: a modern, custom window cornice. On a budget of $200, we designed and built a simple frame in half a day.


Whether you want to spread out in an open backyard space or tuck away in an empty corner on your deck, the outdoors can provide the perfect setting to gather your thoughts and chill in the breeze.


In eight hours and with $325 we created the perfect outdoor spot for lounging.


We all have that one drawer or closet that makes us cringe every time we look at it. For a lot of people it's their medicine cabinet.


In two hours and with $25 we wrangled products and glamorized a boring medicine cabinet. This little change makes a big difference.
