INTENSE Makeover! Weird Shaped Room Challenge!
And Janie's episode of what's my aesthetic we are making over the home of two creative weirdos Anna grace and Taylor, hi. I'm Taylor and I'm Anna grace and we're, married we're married these newlyweds have tried their darndest to make their converted, garage guesthouse their home will of course get to know their aesthetic they agree, we, have a couple who, have the same taste. And roll up our sleeves to make it a reality so grab a warm cup of coffee and get cozy because today's episode is sponsored by curate to introduce the new K cafe coffee house brewer and let's, get dramatic, playful. And creative. Mr.. Kate and I live my life as a creative, weirdo, many. People's weirdness is their own brand of uniqueness and, it's my passion in life to help people define our creativity so that they can express their truest selves to, the world. Maybe. 60% bohemian. 30%, minimalist, and 10% glam, but, whatever you are you're 100 percent you, so. Let's go on a journey together and ask a question, what's. My, aesthetic. Are. You in the poorhouse, technically. Nice. Goodbye, the garage to the main oh. So, nice anywhere's like a one-bedroom, is better back there me and that's the closet and left which is an odd place out the closet but it's so big that we're like cool, so each other side oh oh, but. You could be like a cool like Island situation. What. Do you do for work I'm, an actress - actress, gotcha, and your husband is a stage actor, so. Your husband's style. So. They need to come around this, - yeah yeah. But they don't really go in it very much so that's why I disorder and I are still here from when we moved in because it's sort of like yes my. Husband and I are we try to agree, on what. Our aesthetic is right, and what we decided to do was take the quiz together last night we, found a picture of your, living room on Pinterest. And we were like this, is like the perfect marriage of both of our. Section. Is, basically. Storage as when we moved in we started, unpacking boxes, they, already had this up here yeah I thought maybe about putting the desk over there or making it sort of like a desk, area no.
I Know I love that idea. Any. Final thoughts. Help. On three. Okay. So we are diagnosing. Anna, Grace and Taylor, now we. Have a unique, situation on, our hands here people because guess what they. Agree, we, have a couple, who, have the same taste. And that is, an overarching. Love, for, mid-century, modern, and they said we love your, living room our meaning, mine and Joey's living room the thing about our living room we have you know a barrel ceiling fireplace. An, arched window we have some architectural, interest going on in there that they don't have in their living. Rooms we'll get to that later in the plan but, they like a dark colored wall they like streamline furniture, so think tapered, leg a mix of tan, colors, maybe some tweed like fabric, and also some, raw wood, will ease off all of that the fact that they agree, I am diagnosing. Them as a couple as 80%, mid-century. Modern, and 20%, farmhouse. Oh. My. Gosh you. Century. Modern. Yeah. I love it how are you play let's go over the plan, so guys you know that we treat, everybody to, these, makeovers, likely, basically, bring them all this furniture they get it all for, free which is awesome. Based on the fact that they love, our living room so much I, want. To give them our couch. What. We're. Giving them our couch yeah, I guess I've been wanting. To change it out with one that's just a little bit longer can we get a new couch, yes I I already have one picked out it's a little bit longer than, the one we have now it's the same style though it, sounds crazy. Crazy. Creative weirdo um. Okay. So they love our living, room now obviously the difference between our living room and their, living room it's absolutely different architectural, style, thank you exactly so we have a barrel ceiling we have an arched window they. Look, cool like beams. Though, I mean it's a low ceiling but the beams are cool but I don't want to paint out those beams a different color because that'll just make the ceiling too low cuz it already is pretty, low, but. I do love that they like the dark color because I think doing a dark color in there is going to really help so, like a hawk side wall no. I want to go all, the way dark, around, that whole living room and then keep the kitchen light the, entire room dark yeah it's actually gonna make it more cozy, it'll make it look more designed because the thing that we have going against, us in this space is just. The layout it's a weird shaped, room there's windows, on every, single wall which. We can tell that's already been an issue for them because they have their TV, in front of one of the windows right, so I'm going to be doing something in this room that I haven't done in awhile and. That is. Putting. In. Some. Real. Plans. So. Pretty cool oh yeah you. Guys know that I usually use, just. The, square, shape of the room and I let. That dictate like, the line of the couch lines up with one of the walls we're, not going to do that in here as you can see and, these things come in we are going to place, the, rug at a, you know the sofa, out of diagonal bringing, in maybe some stools opposite, to it so it's really like a full 360. Conversation. Area now. The reason, for this is because of. Just the amount of windows in there really, trying to make sure that we don't have to put the TV in front of the window but also have it be viewable. From like their kitchen, and have the living room be like a good flow so, this diagonal. Is going to make it happen which, will be able to clear out the little storage area and make that into like a desk area there we'll.
Do A collage wall over here with some of their wedding. Photos and. Maybe some DIY artwork, and then, I think in the kitchen, an island. In there yeah it's a big kitchen so, like it's kind of empty so I think that you could build a, kitchen. Island yeah and maybe use some of these like I just laid out the supplies here so like the hairpin legs oh yeah, right so it kind of would look like a table, like, a counter. Height table, slash like extra, surface area for them while they're cooking love it I think it's gonna be really really, impactful, when you walk in the front door and, see like just a proper, living world, yeah, it's always a risk to design on the bias which. You know is just kind of defining a diagonal, in a room but, I think this is the room for it. Exciting. Okay, so I got to paint this whole room mm-hmm. We're changing out the fixtures yeah so we'll change out the fan to a light in the living room because they're AC you work really well in there they don't need the ceiling fan and we're. Gonna change out that ugly, fixture, in their kitchen and removing. The. Curtain removing the curtains because they have blinds on the windows and then that one very awkward, shaped window, that, doesn't, we, can't put blinds on because it's just the wrong link we're going to frost that, glass with this front. Window, Frost love. It great, I'm nervous. Why. Because. I'm not gonna have a couch anymore. And. Because we're gonna create their entire interior, a dark color it's. Gonna be great it's gonna look like a really, beautifully. Designed space, it's what the space me. Trust you because is actually really ugly we're trying to make it cute okay, okay so I'm gonna go get turned on that you're gonna go meet them and do stuff. Yeah. All right I have DIYs to plan and thanks. Shop great. We. Want to quickly tell you that today's sponsor Keurig, and their cake ass a single, serve coffee latte, and cappuccino maker, who you know he's talking a coffee shop a long time ago right I know you're a retired barista, but the good thing is you don't have to be a barista to enjoy your favorite coffee or creamy latte little, frothy cappuccinos, at home and you're gonna give Anna grace and Taylor their very own cake out of a coffeehouse brewer to, enjoy in their new help that's, right guys every house can be a coffee house with the K cafe coffee house brewer you can frought their choice of fresh milk including, skim soy and almond, to create a creamy latte or frothy cappuccino just. Pour your milk into the dishwasher safe, frother and select either latte or cappuccino and. Watch, your milk magically. Frog, there's even a cold setting if you're having an iced beverage the brewer works with any of your favorite can cut pods so the options are endless you just put your cake up bot in and through 6, 8 10, or 12 ounces of your favorite coffee, to your cocoa. Simply. Pour your freshly froth milk and your coffee energy. It is really good you guys go to CARICOM, to learn more and I think a migration Taylor we're gonna love this thing but, let's get back to decorating shall we let's, do it. Taylor. I, didn't, get to meet, you in person so nice to finally meet I know you usually work at Disneyland up on. The, frozen show on the frozen show you which you were busy being an evil, villain I went, and met your lovely wife here so, are you ready to hear, what you. Are based off of my yes the doctors. I, have, diagnosed, you guys as. 80%. Mid-century. Modern. Okay so, our highest-scoring, so. Far. And. Then 20%. Farmhouse. Cool, okay. A. Little unfinished wood, kind, of you, know a little bit of the white mmhmm. Right like the worn wood thing that you like so, that's. Awesome. So. Tell me what you learned about the. Wedding all wedding photos by watching our newlywed videos yes we, got married and I loved all the photos that our photographer chosen and I like framed. Them and then we watched the episode the newlyweds episode where they had something really similar and you, came in and you were like this, is great, this. Is a lot and so you took one of them and you made it like kind of the centerpiece look like some, different photos around right, some more like landscape, photos, right which, I was like I need to do and my reasoning for that is just because I think if you have too many of the. Same type, of photos, it detracts, from all, of them like yeah they're basically, having. Too many faces, coming at you out of a gallery wall and you can don't really know where to look as opposed to creating the gallery as like, a guy as a story, and, really, highlighting. Those photos so that said, thank, you for this I took inspiration from, that and I had this. This. Is just a hint at like how, much we're gonna celebrate this like this is janky, so, what. We're gonna do right now is, an, art piece together because we're gonna create a gallery wall set up but, we want to have a piece of art.
Together. So. We're gonna do abstract, art it's gonna be really easy and it's gonna be fun, and we're gonna mix in some colors that are very mid-century, and. Sort of vibrate. I. Mean. That is beautiful, look, at that. Really. It's making me hungry right now we're gonna play with some horizontal lines as, well. As some vertical lines so we're gonna use some of the darker colors here and it's all just, using these spatula to no more brushes so. It's it's a really fun kind of peaceful technique, so we'll just deposit, a little, bit of color. I. Couldn't, recreate in. A way but, it's like very peaceful, in the way that like the colors mixed in together I mean this is like mid-century, modern, to a tee alright. So we're, gonna just dry you. Guys are gonna go I'm gonna do tomorrow you're, awesome. Thank. You are tuned. Art. All. Right well let's go cuz I have another projects due elsewhere but I'll take you guys out on the way come on. Julie. Don't. We yeah. Yeah. You. Wait wall behind. And. You got the butcher block countertop. Just. To do and stuff to put in frames and then I'll bring over stop by thank. You, so. Obviously, we have that amazing artwork, that Anna grace and Taylor just painted is drawing so I was driving to prep some other stuff that's gonna be in our gallery, wall set up I only. Showed, them that one blown-up, photo of the one, of them standing, from their wedding but, I also have this one which is so. Cute. Which. Will be really cool I think also as part of the gallery setup and the reason why I think this one is okay mixed in with the other one is because it's so close up I also have. One. Of our art prints. That. You can get as well and shop with mr. cheeto calm I love, the sort of like a minimalist, look it's a very mid-century and, not it's kind of like abstract again, so, we're sort of offsetting. The wedding photos with these more abstract pieces. So, I want to also include a sketch, because, you guys know that I love to, integrate, also hand, on stuff so when you're creating a gallery while you're telling a story it is a gallery it's like you're having your own exhibit, so you can mix in photography. With. Paintings. With sketches, so I want to do something again, abstract. I want to just do like a line drawing you know one of those worry like the line never separates. Oh. Okay. I think what I just created is like one of those drama, masks. Which. They're both actors, doesn't, that kind of look like one of those like, the Shakespearean. Masks so, I'm gonna cut that out put in a frame and then. I'm, gonna go join Joey because I think he needs some help over there. Frames. This. Looks so much better, in here like it's like a turtle room. It is like completely. Opposite, of what it was before how many coats did you have to do on this Ted shut up.
Okay. Like, for my drama, look. At this though like this looks so cool now this. Is such a patchwork room. You know the fact that it's like a garage extension. It was like different. Sized windows, and, whatever how, good is this light look over here. This. Is also an amazing hack, like this was such a good idea I know I love this this is bringing in like a little bit of the farmhouse vibe and you did such a good job they'll, be able to like use, this as a cutting board extra kitchen, surface. And we, took away their miniature, dining, table over there which they didn't even use and this is so much better now we have these amazing mid-century. Stools, oh these are cool but they can sit out, here, you know and they store under here nicely as well so like move, around it easily this turned out really cool too. Wallpaper. Great, I. Mean. How did it feel that you didn't, have to mount a TV for once it. Was take down the curtain that's, how life should be no mounting TVs no hangings hurts okay look how good this looks with this mid-century. Sideboard. This is establishing. Our diagonal. Layout. Right, we're starting from the corner boom. This justifies, it that's that's establishing. It you know what's driving, at home what, look, at this giant rug I have here. Wanna. Help me roll it out set, on the diagonal. We're, designing on the bias I'm a little biased to myself oh, my. God. About. How beautiful. You are, why. Are you talking like that like, a creeper. Can. You go down there no. I like. This. And. The. Frosting, looks really good too the, frosting looks good the desk is like this is game changer, this is game changer because like this little area was so, weirdly, tucked, away behind that curtain before like making it feel like I've been trying to have their desk out here in the way like, just didn't make any sense now it feels like it's like a dedicated, spot yeah, and we're still using the vertical space for, the storage I have some storage baskets, and stuff but let's talk more rolling one two oh. That's. Such a cool little fixture, it's like I know, that's so mid-century, cute, and so much better than, the, ceiling, fan which. They don't need because they're AC works, on rola wall wait. Can you oh. Nice. Your biceps. Because. Something. But. Yes huge. Sofa. Tables is the perfect, size yes so narrow right so nice so this creates now like a hallway right because we have the front door here, they walk in this. Justifies, the back of the couch on a diagonal, you, can walk into the kitchen set their keys here there's so much great seating, now I know we. Said she likes ever friends overs is perfect yeah this is like a 360. Degree conversation, area plus, storage, in these Ottomans, okay so let's talk about the big stuff in here obviously the biggest, liberty. That we took was, doing. A diagonal floor plan and. We're just gonna work yeah I think it works too I mean obviously we're justifying that with everything with the rug side of the diagonal, with everything, set a diagonal but, creating the traditional. Conversation. Area that we love to do two chairs coffee, table, sofa, but. This is now like a full living room set up we have the tapered, legs you'll see that as a very identifying. Feature on mid-century you see legs. Legs legs legs with. Tapered, legs really smooth you'll. See that the lines of all the furnitures, really clean, and that. Is definitely very characteristic. With the mid-century because remember we're trying to do 80%. Mid-century. In here which is a lot but, then we're also mixing, wood tones which is very farmhouse, are 20% farmhouse we've got like a darker. Wood coffee table the, more medium, tone of the, wood here, we'll do some mixed, frames you, know with all the artwork set up and then I think it's so much better in here without the, curtains, because they have a very awkward setup, with the amount of windows and the fact that all the windows are different sizes they have French doors that's their entry door so, by not doing, curtains, were sort of like letting.
The Windows just be the, rectangles. In the room right and this is a great song because, like you basically were looking right into another house before, yeah, this is a. Nice just, muted light coming in right there landlords, live on the other side of that window and now it's frosted, they don't have kept the curtains drawn all the time so like we're, getting more light, in here too which is great well there you got the blinds on the windows so, all right well I'm gonna get the, artwork. And photographs. And stuff on, that wall yep. And then you'll, judge, and, then we'll be done yeah, and the artworks are so cool okay I'm gonna do style. Great, all. Right guys we have this amazing. Wall desk here like what a perfect. Look, this is for, a desk area before, it was just this cluttered, closet, concealed. By a curtain, like this is so much better and this, wall desk is amazing, because we're using the vertical space and this is very mid-century, and style obviously still keeping with the clean lines that kind of medium tone of wood this actually bamboo but you know we're taking some liberties so, some of the farmhouse elements, obviously baskets. And things with more, natural. Elements, like this rope and glass this is obviously, very much, like the farmhouse, beachy. Vibe when. You guys take our test whatever you score, the majority, on that's kind of your major aesthetic, where you should focus on your furniture pieces and then there's those other styles where you get less of a percentage, those, are the things you can focus on for accessories, so you're still bringing in that style but not in the big pieces so let's. Get this up on the shelf. Anteye. Grace for being a created weirdo and already having these, amazing faux plants. On hand, for me to style we also have the hanging plant that she already had up so yay, but let's talk about the small stuff that's going in obviously, plants, create a really, design, decorated, look you guys know I'm a broken record about bringing plants and just bringing in that natural element, softens. An odd corner, etc, so definitely gonna use these probably, over there I've also got this new, side, table, which is very, mid-century, clean, lines unembellished. Legs, except for a little peak of natural wood at the bottom I'll put that over there by that chair I have they're using side table here and I love that she just kind of DIY this is, a lazy, susan, they got for their wedding, one of their wedding gifts, and it's marble and she just put it on top of this like, inexpensive. Table and it is a cool tiered, look loving, it keeping it Yass Anna grace for the table tops you guys know I love to bring in a brass accent. Especially. In a mid-century room brass. Is a very important, color the warm colors, the warm tones of wood the, warm tan the, warm brass very, mid-century I've also got some other things they're. Geometric. Lines. You, know nothing, really small, patterns, you'll also see that here with the pillows we've got kind of a tweed, which is very mid-century, you'll also see that happening.
Here On the fabric. Of the chairs nothing, over embellished, and we. Are in mid-century. Land. Looks. Good looks good this is cute like you she had that is that you. Don't. Care. That's. All I look in the morning. I. Think it looks great it looks really, good it has such a different feeling in here now at the dark walls like I know we, took a major risk, doing that but, like it just unifies. The space so much more and it feels so, this. Is also a game changer, game, changer. Like a kitchen, island so. I. Know all. Right should we get up yeah show. Them ready. Let's, go to, the Joey. Okay. I've got my hands on your head like this. You. Think. About think about what you. Look. Really cute. Yeah. All. Right picture what your room looked like before. Okay. Look. At the frame. Your. Guys couch, is. This not like exactly, like it it's. It's. So comfy. Couch. I actually wanted, to get one that was just slightly longer for our living room. Like. And look at how nice that way. Actually. Took away, the curtains, in here yeah there's. The fact that all the windows didn't match I think this is a better way to just make it feel more mid-century. The. Way you're. So. Much oh, my gosh there's croissants up like a styling. That's. Your New York a cafe coffee house where. Every. Day oh my gosh I love this st. Joe any felt this island, many, homes or bought countertops, you can use and it's like a cutting board and everything, oh I haven't looked. And there's an area rug I'm just like I'm taking any things but I didn't notice that first oh my. Gosh nothing behind it so, this makes it so that this becomes now your hallway right we walk in the front door you, have this entryway, because. This diagonal. Floorplan. Isn't something like I normally do, as you, guys know, I. Wasn't expecting it but it. Works all your throw blankets from your wedding or in those storage Ottomans. How. There's our coffee table today. Hello. Gallery, all dreams, right there right that's a painting, I love it so much so, and it brings in the beautiful blues and, greens and then, the mid-century like mustard, which is like the same kind of telling of this and. Then that just gets thrown the draw map I did it with one line. Thank. You guys this is really beyond. Beyond, direct approach we're gonna go we had a long day we're gonna go not. Enjoy. It enjoy it. Yeah. Look. At the way I didn't see the lamp I know. Enjoy. Guys. I. Want, to send this show. They. Loved it guys, what did you think I. Think, that they loved it most importantly but of course when you're eating so let us know in the comments, I think I think they were great candidates, for an intense makeover, like that was not a light makeover, we went from white to dark it was a bold, choice, we, were bold in there but.
