Overview

When three top interior designers come together in a family’s home to battle it out through a series of demanding style challenges, there are tears, drama, and plenty of emotion.

Ultimately only one can win the right to restyle a problem space in the family’s home. The pressure is on as the family eliminates one designer from the competition. Two remain to pitch their ideas for the final transformation.

Who will the family choose to create the ultimate room and will they love the result?

Episode1 – A Princesses Party

With three young children and a hectic schedule, the tight-knit Kernell family has little time or money to renovate and their design dream is to see new life breathed into their unloved family room. Designers Vanessa De Vargas, Rafi Kalichstein and Shirry Dolgin roll up their sleeves to present rival visions for a stunning seating area, a perfect princess birthday party and a tranquil bedroom retreat. They’ll have to impress the entire family in order to win the battle and the only clues they have to work with are a green vintage dress, a bamboo plant and a starfish.

While they love the outdoors and spend as much time as they can on the beach, the Jacobson’s open-plan family room is a charm free zone where no one feels comfortable.

Shirry Dolgin, Dimitri Von Rathscheck and Devlyn Gorby all step up to bat to impress the baseball loving family with their competing visions for a trophy showcase, the home’s stale entryway and lifeless living room. And apart from the well-worn suburban interiors, the only clues they have are a colorful Asian wall hanging, two vintage purses and an old catcher’s mitt!

Episode5 – Argentine Design

Busy lawyers with an active lifestyle and two toddlers, the Joneses have little time to devote to their much-loved Spanish Colonial home, and their bare-bones master bedroom is in urgent need of a makeover.
