Seasons 1-3 Synopsis
Style, flamboyance and designer flair, with two cool-talking, smooth-looking décor dudes. Everything they touch turns to pure excitement.
Steven Sabados and Chris Hyndman are two experienced decorators with very different design ideas. In every episode they meet a new homeowner with a new design challenge.
We follow Steven and Chris as they examine the space, interview the client, argue with each other over the plan, collect and construct the pieces and redesign, decorate and transform the area into a wonderfully practical space for living.
The boys work wonders from changing an attic to a combination home office and retreat to giving a one-bedroom apartment a full makeover, mixing fun with innovation.
It’s an entertaining and humorous process from start to finish, one in which we learn a whole host of tricks and trade secrets for use in our own homes.
