Episode Summary

Retro Home Office
Mary Ann La Russa's home office is disorganized and under furnished. Host Sam Kivett pays her a visit to discuss the issues, which include an insufficient workspace, a lack of storage and proper lighting, as well as complete disorganization. Kivett and the design team's assignment is to turn this white disorganized box into an exciting and functional office that fits La Russa's quirky retro style. Kivett meets with Summer Baltzer and Charles Burbridge to review his design plan that will cut through the clutter and provide a functional and groovy office. They have a vintage desk refurbished at an auto body paint shop, spray paint a creative wall accessory, refurbish a dentist cart that will function as a printer stand plus install a vintage hubcap light fixture. Once it's done, La Russa really digs her newly transformed retro office! The cluttered, dull and disorganized room is colorful and completely organized thanks to the new bookshelves and credenza. Kivett and his design team not only created a functional office but successfully infused the homeowner's quirky retro style into the room.moreless
