A few of my MOST amazing peeps!
(back row) Rupert & Danny create carpentry magic. Seriously.
They can do anything with the most limited amounts of time.
Rupert could probably build you an ark in 24 hours and it would have killer wainscoting.
Danny would install the most amazing lighting in the ark and put them all on dimmers.
(front row) Tracey for painting my face and making me look human and less tired.
Ruth for being more creative than I could ever wish for in a human being.
Jen for anticipating what I need before I know it and for always being in the best mood.
What in the world is Spanish Deco?
It sounds made up, doesn't it? Well, it kinda is.
Phil & Crystal have this really gorgeous Southern California Spanish-Style home and they are in love with Art Deco design. At the same time, they did not want to ignore the architecture of their home and they felt they could combine both their style sensibilities...THUS, Spanish-Deco or what I like to call PHILCRYSTYLE.
It works for them. They were SO INCREDIBLE to deal with and the whole process was so much fun. Crystal baked for us the most amazing (for lack of a better word) cookies. They are kind of like biscotti but even better. Delicious. She made enough for the whole crew to take away as gifts and Phil, who used to be an illustrator for Disney, made an original illustration/cartoon for each member of the crew that was specific and personal to what they do. Incredible. Both Phil & Crystal are incredibly talented and have two wonderful boys. We have THE BEST homeowner's on this show.
Now let's not forget the amazing inspirational homeowner's from RMS that really inspired Phil & Crystal with their makeover;
-KEVIN'S use of warm color and eclectic furnishings definitely inspired Crystal & Phil!
-ALLISON & MICHAEL'S dark stained bookcases give their room a library feel and Crystal & Phil wanted to incorporate a little bit of that into their room.
-LUIGI was a great example for both Crystal & Phil how you can combine both Spanish & Art Deco elements and make them work!
