Episode Summary

Mother-Daughter Chaos
Elizabeth Swanson is a single Mom raising her two daughters, Madeline and Isabel. She was separated from her husband five years ago but only recently divorced and the family has endured a couple of recent moves that has left their current home in a state of disorder. The family room is more like a junk room with clothing, furniture (especially chairs) and other assorted clutter everywhere. Elizabeth's bedroom has become a catch-all for everyone and everything with envelopes, more clothes, papers and other such items strewn about the space. As Peter gets to work, he finds that he has to cut through sentimental attachments to get Elizabeth to purge. Madeline becomes his biggest cheerleader, working tirelessly to help clear away clutter that is driving her mad. Designer Kelli Ellis does an awesome redesign of the rooms. The basement area is made into a true family space that also serves as a guestroom, with a bright red theme, new seating, a refurbished fireplace, a homework area, a multi-leveled table and much more. Elizabeth's bedroom is given a new TV cabinet, lighting, baskets, a bright golden look, adjustable shelving and other features that make it Madeline's envy.moreless
