Synopsis

Top Canadian interior designer Candice Olson heads a team of artisans and skilled labourers that includes Paul Daly (carpenter), Chico Garcia (electrician), Edmond Joseph (seamster), and Andrew Downward (painter).

At the start of each show, Candice meets the home owners and discusses the issues with the room. Next, Candice reveals her point of inspiration, illustrations and colour scheme to the audience.

The room is cleared of all contents, then the walls are painted. Next, the lights are installed.

The carpenter generally constructs at least one new custom piece in addition to helping to reset the room with all new furniture. Candice rarely uses the room's existing furniture - if she does, she generally re-upholsters it.

Then, the sewer hangs curtains and makes accent pillows. Finally, the room is accessorized. At the end of the show, the room is "revealed" to the homeowners.

Throughout the program, Candice chooses a handful of specific pieces or techniques to highlight. She refers to her "elevations" and room illustrations to help guide viewers through her vision.

Candice dislikes matching furniture sets, which she calls "matchy, matchy." For example, she will choose two very different looking nightstands for a bedroom.

Candice prefers to use recessed lighting in almost all cases, using spotlights to highlight artwork or other focal points. She also decorates using lots of "drama."

A sparse loft living room becomes warm and inviting, a family room with dated furniture comes together, a cluttered basement becomes Mom's getaway space.

Olson rolls up her sleeves and delivers exactly what homeowners need and more.
