Gerald and Jasmine moved into their new home a year ago. Since then, they have made little progress in creating a master bedroom that captures their love of Southeast Asian design. They want a serene bedroom retreat to spend time in - a room that mimics the upscale hotel rooms they've enjoyed on their trips to Thailand. Casey and Joel will help them create a space that is both tranquil as well as visually stunning. A carved wood lattice accent wall, a round headboard reminiscent of a gong, and a new grass cloth dresser are just a few of the projects that make this Asian-inspired bedroom truly inspirational.
Will and Lisa moved into their cottage style fixer upper and have lovingly redone every room in the house except for the living room. The living room is a gloomy, drab disaster that needed a pick-me up. The wood paneling, dark furniture and dark curtains give the room a cave-like feel. Both Lisa and Will love the size of the room and the vaulted ceilings, but they are deeply dissatisfied with the room's current decor. They want to bring the bright and cheerful look of their kitchen into the living room and make it a welcoming space where they can relax and play with their three energetic boys. Although Will and Lisa live in the San Fernando Valley, their hearts still belonged to the beach. They love classic design and have spent numerous weekends acquiring the vintage furniture scattered throughout the house. They want a room that is light, airy and elegant -a beach house / summer cottage look that will meld with their French country kitchen.

Min and her roommate Brigitte have been brainstorming ways to liven up the deco in their expansive kitchen.

While staying true to the home's classic design, Casey and Joel will bring the youthful feminine style of girls into their kitchen.

Medgar bought his historic style home sixteen years ago and has been upgrading and decorating different rooms in the house ever since. Not exactly the domestic type, this confirmed bachelor decided to transform the formal dining room into a "chill" space for entertaining and watching TV with friends. Unfortunately, the den has turned into a dumping ground for old furniture and knick-knacks, and the result comes across as immature and unfinished.

By taking their cues from the historic craftsman style of the house, they will create a room that is clean, hip, and sophisticated. They will build new furniture pieces, create fun photography artwork, and revamp the existing built-ins to give the room the style and substance it needs.
The minute Dana and Damien walked through the door of their 1929 Spanish style house, they instantly fell in love. For the past year, they have been painting and decorating their dream home one room at a time. Unfortunately, when it came to their master bedroom, they both admit they were completely lost. As much as they love the views and the spacious layout, their bedroom is currently their least favorite room in the house. Basically, it is where they sleep and not much else.

Casey and Joel are going to work their magic once again and transform Dana and Damien's room into the room they have both dreamed of. To start, the walls are going to be painted a creamy orange to give the room that cozy, warm feeling it previously lacked.

A vanity station will be installed to give Dana her own vanity that she has been dreaming of since she was a little girl. A red canopy will drape over the bed and a chandelier will be hung in the center of the room. The Spencer's old, boring master bedroom will be turned into an inviting space both Damien and Dana will enjoy.
