This was the last episode of RMS Season 1.
If I haven't said this enough before, let me just say that getting to meet and spend time with the various homeowners is one of the most fulfilling experiences of my job. This episode was no exception. Yvette & Russell were unbelievable. Their huge, open hearts, their generosity of spirit and also AMAZING cooking skills (they have a catering co. in Los Angeles and fed us with incredible, homemade food and desserts every day we shot with them) made for a fun and moving experience for all of us. Their emotional response was overwhelming, humbling and will stay with us forever.
If all that wasn't enough, we had three inspirational homeowner's from the RMS community that were everything we could have hoped for and so much more:
RACHEL & GRAHAM: Their warm and welcoming seating arrangement was something that Yvette & Russell wanted to incorporate in their own home. Even though Rachel & Graham have a slightly different style than the Platoff's are into and their living room is a little larger....Yvette & Russell knew they wanted to create the same cozy & inviting feel in their living room that Rachel & Graham had.
IVY: Was able to carve a section in her room that gave her a zen space. Ivy gave Yvette great advice and encouragement. Yvette wanted to be able to accommodate her alter and a meditation space in her small living room. By enlarging her alter area and giving Yvette flexible seating options she was morph that part of her living room to suit her needs in the moment and for future entertaining with her husband, family & friends.
LISA & GORDON: Yvette & Russell were so delighted to speak with Lisa & Gordon not only because their gorgeous entry piece was inspiring, but also because they were so giving with their insightful decor advice. Lisa & Gordon really understand that design is personal and it's less about fads and "right & wrong" BUT more about the way you want to live and how you want your home to feel as well as the fact your home should morph and change the way you do.
What an amazing experience this episode along with the others in our first season.
THANK YOU all who watch, post, comment, blog, and inspire. This was a great way to end our season. Check us out next month when Season 2 begins.
