(upbeat guitar music) - so here we are in ro's new living room, and i am going to bring youthrough some of the design tips we used to create thisreally beautiful space. tip number one is think about flow. before ro had a problem with flow, because she had a gigantic sofa that just blocked the room offfrom the rest of the house. what we did was, we broke up the sofa.

one of the considerations here is that ro has a lot of people in this room, and we needed a lot of seating. but what we didn't wannado is have her guests feel like they were penned in. so, we have one large sectional sofa, that accommodates 10 people. and there's flow through here. and we've broken it up witha second matching sofa.

we also paired two chairs,which flank the fire. what else helps in this space is that we have a circular table, so there's no angles thatlead people in or out or sort of box them in. tip number two, coordinated color palette. so, there's a lot going on in this room, and it actually flows into the kitchen. so we wanted the wholespace to be seamless.

we have consistent marblein the coffee table, and in the kitchen. we have consistent nickel accents so all of the hardware inthe kitchen as well as the pieces we've chosen in the living room and in this shelf are all nickel accent. and we also have thisconsistent gray palette. so we wanted to pick upthe color of the veins in ro's marble and backsplash.

and we wanted to bringthat all the way through to the living room so it feels easy, styled, comfortable, butit's one seamless space that they can utilize for ro's production. tip number three. when you're styling with a really mutedcolor palette like this, think about textures. so, what makes this really interesting,

even though it's sort ofshades of gray, is that, we have polished marble. we have satin nickel. we have a really great tweed. we have silk in the rug. and we have a rough linen in the chairs. and then we've got this non-honed, dry finished marble on the coffee table. and what that's allowing us to do

is to mix all of these colors, but still have it be visually interesting. so, when you go tonal, go textured. - hey guys, we're gonnado some tips and tricks on how we did ro's home office. tip number one, spacial configuration. one of the biggest thingswe had to think about when we did ro's office is, where everything would go

so the flow was really, really good. we put all of our l-shapeddesks back to back in order to make these zones. one is the back area which isthe private accounting zone, computers facing the wall, and the front area isthe more public zone, where ro and molly are doing their work and they have this great seating area. so it's broken up into two zones

that are really functional. tip two, noise dampening in an office. i think one of the bigconsiderations that ro wanted was, how do we take this space and make it much more quiet, and we didthat by adding things like carpets and the sofa. all of these bigger pieces absorb sound and now, the entire officeis really calm and cozy and exactly what ro wanted.

tip three, cord management. when you're thinking about anopen office plan like this, where the desks are floating, it's really important toconsider cord management. so in the case of ro's office, the desks themselves camewith one port for cords, and we actually custom drilled holes in the other end of thedesk for ro's desk light, so those cords were taken care of as well.

so when you walk into the space, it's really clean and clutter free. - hey everybody, herewe are in ro's bedroom. and i wanted to talk aboutwhat we did design-wise to pull this whole room together. so i'm gonna give you a couple of tips. tip number one is choose a color palette. so in ro's room, we chose thisreally great color palette, of gray and little bitof gray-green, and linen.

and so we've pickedthat up across the room. the gray in the nightstands,linen in the headboard, we've got linen on the sofa, so the room feels really tied together. because it's got a neutral palette, it has a real sense of calm, which is something thatro was really looking for this time around in her bedroom. tip number two, metallics.

so in ro's room, because we were working withand existing chandelier which is very sparkly, we chose to use all ofthese nickel accents in here to enhance the chandelier. we also brought in some of the silver in the mercury glass side lamps. so there's really a gray and silver and neutral palette happening here,

which makes the roomreally calm and consistent. tip number three, thinkabout room functionality. when we came into this room, we realized that there were acouple of things going for it. it has great light, so lots of windows. it has a very high ceiling. and it also has lots of room. and so, just like the rest of the house, ro really wanted her bedroomto be kind of multifunctional.

she wanted it to be a bedroom, but it's also, a littlebit of a media room. so we added in a seatingarea beside the bed and brought in side tables, which is pretty unusual for a bedroom, but actually works inhere, because of the scale. we added seating to the end of the bed, so people can watch tv or, you know, when you're putting yourshoes on, ro can sit there,

and there's also extraseating in the corner. so this room goes beyond being a bedroom and becomes a very functionalmedia room as well.
