      Sanya has a living room that is used for many social and family gatherings, but it doesn't seem to do much else. Paula and Divian, Sanya's brother, need their living room looked at by a professional. Linda Barker is in Sanya's living room. She paints the walls in a burnt orange then adds a glaze over that. They trace henna designs from a projector onto the wall in brown. The fireplace's bricks are taken out and then the area is covered with a cupboard. The carpet is taken out and the existing floorboards are stained. They place two rugs over that. The existing lighting is changed to reflect the style of the room and art work is created from fabric banners that have been stenciled on the wall. Anna Ryder Richardson is in the living room and she has a plan, as she always does. She starts by painting the walls completely white. Then adds a large horizontal band across the room in turquoise and a smaller one above that in pink. This entire room is going modern, so this is just the beginning. The table is created from an existing table with various color squares all over it. They take inspiration from Andy Warhol and create art with photos in different shades and putting them on canvis. Another art piece is created out of silver christmas ornaments glued onto an acrylic sheet. The chandelier is made from spray painted ping pong balls and fishing wire. This is quite a piece of work.moreless

      Chris and Sue's dining room is very bland, with nothing exciting to offer. Carol and Martin's room is just a disaster. They tried to decorate but it didn't quite make it. Linda Barker is in Chris and Sue's dining room and covers the existing wallpaper in a primer, then it's painted a shade of brown. Then touches of bamboo wallpaper are added for texture. Instead of the usual window treatment, they create three panels that will slide on a track in order to slide over the window. A new table top is made out of reclaimed oak floorboards, and the chairs are covered in red Chinese silk. Graham Wynne is in the bedroom. The walls get painted in two colors -- tan and a chocolate brown. Makeover the existing bed into a four poster bed by using bamboo. It is then covered in gold raw silk and white linens.

      Episode 4
      Judy's bedroom is a bit outdated and she's hoping she has the right people to help her. Martin and Jenny's bedroom feels unpersonal and more like a hotel room in the woods. Linda Barker is whipping things together in Judy's bedroom. Think TOILE TOILE TOILE for this room. Toile fabric covers three out of the four walls, cabinet doors, and even makes an appearance on the lamp shades with black and white photos. Judy's bed is transformed by having an MDF cover over the existing frame and then painted all black. Most of the furniture is kept, but painted with a black gloss. Graham Wynne definitely has some ideas for Martin and Jenny's room. He paints all the walls sky blue, then paints varying size vertical strips of colors like fuchsia pink, sugar pink, peppermint green, sunshine yellow, lime green and ocean blue. He does something similar on the floor. Artwork is created using black and white photos and enlarging them and putting them on squares of MDF.moreless

      Episode 3
      Paul and Jo need their living room updated. The room has many different influences as it is now. Helen and Trevor want their dining room designed with their tables and chairs being the focal points. Oliver Heath is in Paul and Jo's living room. They may have wanted "rustic outdoor", but surely they didn't consider that it would be Oliver Heath's interpretation. His version includes painting the walls a soft fern color. Then using a cherry blossom stencil in a couple spots. They transfer nature photos to canvas for art. They reupholster existing furniture to spruce up the room with lots of plants. Laura McCree is off and running in the dining room. She paints to entire room in an off-white paint then uses varied colored materials to stretch from ceiling to floor. She paints the staircase a dark purple and puts small lights on the underside of the stairs. This is very much against what Helen and Trevor asked for. They wanted rustic... and they didn't want their staircase touched. This could be dramatic indeed!moreless

      Jill has a living room in her cottage that looks just like that. Nothing awful about it, but nother great either. Marian has a bedroom in her 1920's house that is in a bit of a state. She knows it needs work, but now she has the right team to help her out. Linda Barker is in Jill's living room and she's changing it up for sure. She uses two colors on the wall, one at the bottom and a lighter one at the top. Then they create different sizes and colors of circles. They repeat the pattern on window treatments using a cream colored material and then dipping a styrofoam cup into paint and using it as a stamp.
