One of our super talented producers, ROBYN, with one of our equally talented carpenters, DANNY. I have no idea what they are trying to do, but I'm all for it.
Kerrie & Jamie bought their first house in Los Angeles and were genuinely trying to find a way to incorporate their contemporary styling with their eco mindedness. They wanted it to feel like an extension of who they are and not forced or too precious. Well, we heard the call and off we went.
As always, some of our homework was done by the inspirational homeowners on RMS.
-AMY had the right feel in terms of furniture arrangement and dark chocolate wall color. Both Kerrie & Jamie were drawn to her living room. Amy had great advice for them and was joy to speak with.
-STACY's work space gave Kerrie the idea that it could happen in their living room in a way that didn't feel overpowering of cluttered. Stacy's inspiration was key in helping us define that for Kerrie...so much so that Jamie wanted in on the "office" action once it was complete.
-MARK used salvaged material in his kitchen remodel. This was HUGE inspiration for Kerrie & Jamie. They loved the way that Mark's remodel didn't skimp on style, but was on the mark as far as being environmentally friendly.
Both Kerrie & Jamie had such a "go for it" attitude the whole time we were there! They were incredibly open to change, they knew the direction they wanted to go in and they have a very clear vision of who they are and how they want to live....THIS IS KEY when designing your home. I had an incredible time with them.
I wish you all the best Kerrie & Jamie!
So, let's not forget the super-amazing, awesomely talented team that helped me put this thing together: Jared, Jen, Danny, Rupert, Ivana and Kris Quinn for her sewing magic and wonderful store. These makeovers are ALWAYS a team effort and so many wonderful people are helping make this show happen week after glorious week. THANK YOU team!
