Episode 11 - The Prickly Pear House

For this beautiful Colonial Cottage we brought back the fan favorite “german smear” technique from season 3! This home was originally very traditional looking with red brick, white trim and dark shutters. We brought it back to life by updating…

Artisan Spotlight - Summer Ellis

  I love the way Summer Ellis talks about her jewelry. She is a true artist—each one of her designs is original, never imitations of someone else’s ideas. She’s passionate about every piece, and each one tells a unique story…

Episode 10 - Silos Baking Co.

For years I’ve drawn design inspiration from old world European mercantile style bakeries. To me, there is something nostalgic about a 100-year-old bakery. I love that from the cabinetry and white subway tile all the way down to the trim…

Episode 09 - The Double Decker House

Episode 06 - The Pick A Door House

The Wixsoms, Dean and Brittany, are both Baylor grads who moved back to Waco from Colorado. They were looking to settle into a family home that matched their modern style, but wasn’t too far from the natural elements they both…

Episode 05 - The Graham House

Mr. and Mrs. Graham’s house had not been updated since the time it was built. It was just a small two bedroom house with one bathroom and a closed-off floorplan. Their personal design style is Traditional, which of course we…

Episode 04 - The Big Country House

  This home was on a beautiful piece of land and was previously a farmhouse style home, so when the Eberle family described their style as farmhouse, I knew it was a perfect fit. Stephanie wanted a really comfortable and…
