If you couldn't tell from tonight's show, Dawan & Yasmin were waaay too much fun to hang out with! They both have an incredible sense of humor, charisma and all around love for life.
This is Dawan's first home and he is the definition of a proud homeowner. He and his girlfriend, Yasmin. have tackled the outside of the house with some great exterior color choices and they put in new landscaping themselves. The curb appeal is tremendous, but they weren't feeling it inside the home. They didn't know where to begin inside since they wanted to tackle each room of the house. We gave them a jump on the renovations by really hooking up the dining room into a space that suits their personal style and is definitely entertainment ready.
-DON has a really great lounge-like feel in his living room and even though we were doing Dawan's Dining Room, Dawan wanted to incorporate the "lounge atmosphere" with his own twist.
-JANICE was kind enough to open her home to us and show Dawan and Yasmin first hand her buffet that helped inspire Dawan & Yasmin to want a buffet/bar in their room, but with a modern spin. Janice was able to give them great design advice along with inspiration.
-FRANK & MIKE were inspiring with their use of an organic shape light fixture over their dining table. They had great advice for Dawan & Yasmin.
All the inspirational and creative homeowner's were incredibly helpful to Dawan & Yasmin. NOW, it was my turn to design something for them that only incorporated their inspirations, but really highlight's Dawan & Yasmin's personal style.
This makeover was brought to you by...THE TEAM that makes magic, Jared, Jen, Danny, Rupert, Pahl & Ivana. They built things, picked up large pieces of bulky furnishings from faraway lands and were all around good sports when I asked more of them. Love you kids, now get back to work.
