S01:E03 - Alexis & Adams Kitchen
Alexis and Adam are in lifestyle shock: the arrival their son Hudson has meant that this formerly out and about couple is now decidedly housebound but their 1980s kitchen just isnt happening anymore. Its neither practical nor beautiful so designer Samantha Pynn gives it an eco-friendly and stylish makeover.

S01:E04 - Kristen & Daves Main Floor
Marketing executives Kristen and Dave bought their modest first home a few years ago and undertook the much-needed renovations themselves. They did a great job removing walls and installing a new kitchen but then ran out of steam. Now they need designer Samantha Pynns expertise to pull their open concept kitchen/dining/living room together and turn it into the beautiful modern space that they had originally envisioned. Sam transforms the space by installing new floors, wall-mounting their oversized TV and adding an area rug and solid modern pieces to augment their black leather sofa.

S01:E06 - Claudia & Justins Living/Dining Room
Claudia and Justin are professional foodies hes a chef and shes a food stylist. So its no surprise that their urban loft space has a beautifully designed modern kitchen.

Designer Samantha Pynn uses their showpiece kitchen as an inspiration and by recovering older teak pieces with eco-friendly fabrics and redoing the floor plan, she creates a visual harmony between the kitchen and the rest of the space, without spending a lot of money or adding loads to the landfill.
S01:E07 - Beths Dining Room
Beth is a busy, successful, single executive whose life consists of five-star hotels, gourmet restaurants and VIP airport lounges. But her own house, a midtown Toronto duplex, doesnt measure up.

Designer Samantha Pynn uses silks, metallic wallpaper, glass tabletops and mirrored doors to transform Beths dowdy living quarters into a glamorous and luxurious space. She does this while using eco-friendly products such as wallpaper made from 50% recycled fibres and salvaged chairs found online which find new life with a fresh coat of paint and upholstery. This over-the-top style, which brings Hollywood glamour into everyday living, may have Beth never wanting to leave home again
