as for the interiors, the designers were presented with the challenge of redesigning rooms in a famous hollywood mansion. nate paired up with dan vickery to revamp the dining room and revamp they did! their first smart choice was using day one of the four day contest to plan rather than haphazardly throw paint on the wall. they spent the following three days cool, calm, and collected. nate created a striking graphic that he freehanded on the walls and floor while dan fashioned and shopped for minimalistic furniture that offset the graphic. they incorporated warm wooden accents and wall paneling that played of the coolness of the space so well the room actually hums. candice olson proclaimed that it was absolutely awesome and i couldn’t agree with her more!
next week: kitchens! (and nate will be in philly so i get to watch the show with him)
