Episode 04 - The Mt. Rockwood Story

November 11, 2015
This home started as a traditional style house with a beautiful lake view. Our clients came from a large newer home and were ready to downsize to a home with a french country feel. They travel often and wanted to bring their experiences abroad into their home. It took some serious imagination and planning to turn this traditional home into a french country dream home in two short months in the Mt. Rockwood Story.
One thing the clients really wanted to incorporate in their new home was a wine room and a space to entertain guests. Joanna transformed the existing living room into their wine room/dining room. She also painted the brick with a distressed finish to give the clients the style they were looking for. Joanna merged the existing kitchen and formal dining into a large kitchen space, perfect for entertaining. Now the layout of the kitchen is both open and inviting and our clients were pleased with the result!

    Love it!!!! Everything you do is perfection. I enjoy watching your show all the way from Melbourne Australia. You guys are amazing and the transformation you create is genious. My husband & I often find it difficult to agree on designs, however,we both love your transformations on all your homes.

    Could you please tell me the brand of the brick pacers used in this show. I live in New Zealand and want to see if I can buy them here. I adore your show. Thanks so much in advance.

      Too funny, I live in NZ and have just looked up this house for the exact same thing. Maybe a bulk import for 2 houses Kate?

    what is the name of the vendor of your sports jacket wearing in this episode? (my wife loves it al least as much as this episode, and I would like to surprize her...)

    Would love to know where the "footed cheese board" that is shown in the wine/dining room was purchased. If it was a found item, I wonder if Clint would be willing to replicate it? I would love to gift it to my son and daughter in law for their 5th (wood) wedding anniversary. Thanks
