April and Brett like many other couple's put their home decorating on hold while raising three little kids which is why they have called on Sabrina for help! After moving to the suburbs from a small NYC apartment decorating this spacious home has become overwhelming. Their dining room is a space they love to entertain in but doesn't at all reflect their modern style or the large family gatherings that they so often host. Watch as Designer Sabrina Soto merges the couple's modern taste with the old details of the room at a budget they can afford.
Charika and Jeff have been married for a blissful 19 years with two kids. Their entire home has recently been renovated including a very large finished basement. With a daughter about to start college staying within a budget is essential. The one room that is always put on the back burner is considered a fourth bedroom/ guest room in their basement. It has become their catch all for junk and is not a functioning space. They want to reclaim this room and transform it into a cool adult Wine Bar Lounge. They love attending wine tastings and ultimately would love to hold a little wine tasting in their Wine Bar Lounge with friends. Sabrina uses her design magic to transform this room into the sophisticated and elegant lounge they always wanted.
Kim and Doug William's moved into their Montclair home ten years ago. They bought the home from an older woman who designed it to be very formal and stuffy so to transition the home for a younger couple with kids they put in a lot of work but it is now a house they LOVE. They both have family in other states and because Kim and Doug love to entertain their home has become the hub for guests to come and stay during the holidays. Very often they host up to twenty guests crashing for the holidays! One thing they loved about this house was the extra room on the third floor attic area that they knew they could use as a guest room. They have tried little by little to give this room some TLC but it's just one of the TO DO's that is always last on the list when you are a busy family with three kids. With the holidays quickly approaching Kim and Doug want to transform this room into a comfortable little getaway space for their family and friends especially the in-laws! Sabrina is here to help! Watch as she redesigns their guest bedroom into a luxurious retreat that their family and friends will love.
Mary and Curtis moved to NJ from California three years ago. They fell in love with this neighborhood BUT all the homes were built in the early 1900's and needed a lot of work. Curtis is not Mr. Handy by any means so they purchased one of the few new homes in the area that was completely move in ready. They thought they would quickly be able to decorate the entire home but with three kids time has gotten the best of them. Their formal living room at the front of the home is a room they have neglected and just pass by every day. It became just a collecting space for all of their old furniture from Cali that they don't care for anymore. When they entertain all of the guests congregate to the back of the house. Mary and Curtis envision this room being a more formal entertaining parlor for great conversation and to have a cocktail. With the holiday season they think it this room would be a great transition space for guests to relax with lots of seating and then head to the dining. They love the details in this room and want it to have a wow factor when guests come over for the holidays with beautiful decor and holiday accents. Sabrina uses her design skills to transform this room into an entertaining haven for the holidays.
Stephanie and Tyler Johnson like most first time homebuyers were thrilled to purchase their dream home last year. After saving and searching they found a beautiful 1940's home with lots of character! Although the home looked beautiful on the surface there was something lurking behind the walls, MOLD!!!! After having a botched inspection during the purchase, the mold was undetected until The Johnson's moved in which came as a big surprise. They didn't factor this costly repair into their decorating budget. Now that the mold is gone they have slowly been putting their home back together. The last room on the list is their master bedroom. This is just a room with a bed to sleep in at this point but they desperately want to change that. Their dream is to transform this space into a no kids zone with eclectic pieces, and vibrant colors. This room is not just a room to sleep in, but a place they can escape to! Tyler wants to play his guitar in here and Stephanie wants to be able to invite her girlfriend's in with a cocktail while they are getting dressed to go out. They both have a funky and edgy style that this space doesn't reflect at all and after having a MOLD setback they are calling on Sabrina for design help.
Liz are Ari Brandt have lived in this home for ten years and have yet to decorate the one room that EVERYBODY sees, the front entryway. Living in the city prior they hadn't lived in a home that had an actual foyer so they were baffled at what to do with this new and unique space. They are quite embarrassed that this is the first thing people see when they enter the home because it doesn't set the right tone. It looks as if no one lives in the home when you enter the front door. Currently it has just become a dumping ground for the kid's stuff. This room completely closes off to the rest of the house via French style folding doors to the living room or they can open it up for entertaining for additional seating. Liz and her son actually create very vibrant artwork so they want to infuse some color into this space. The Brandt's want this room to instantly make their guests feel comfortable and welcome but also allow Liz, Ari and their three kids to feel at home when they walk in everyday. They have slowly decorated the other rooms in their home but they need Sabrina's expert design help to figure out this unique space.
