Expanding almost as quickly are her carpentry projects, which, according to handy guy Ty Pennington, are way beyond what he thinks they should be.
In the neighbor's house, Rick Rifle is trying to give his homeowners a bold dining room for large family gatherings. Does turquoise make a room seem bigger? Or does the room just seem bigger because no one will ever want to eat in a turquoise dining room? We've never seen a homeowner make a face quite like this before and host Paige Davis employs her best diplomacy trying to find the silver lining.Read More

Meanwhile, speaking of wit, Frank Bielec is at least halfway there already and is charged with giving his plain living room a Southwestern feel and the ever-elusive ""understated elegance."" Christi was going for ""distressed"" in her room but if you ask carpenter Ty Pennington, he's just plain ""stressed"" because of how much work Christi has lined up for him.

Upstairs, the women's living room already looks good so what in the world can designer Christi Proctor do to take it up a notch. Similarly, downstairs the men's library is pretty darn elegant to start with so Doug Wilson has a huge challenge to take it to a new level of sophistication.
Carpenter Amy Wynn Pastor has never been busier with projects that happen to include rebuilding the stairs! Along the way Doug has to fight for every single project with his feisty homeowners, and oh, did we mention a surprise telegram from a drag queen? Oh yeah, this episode has it all!Read More
Trading Spaces is all about doing a lot with a little and designers Frank Bielec and Christi Proctor are up to the challenge. One of our teams wants to unify their large master bedroom that starts off looking like 2 or 3 separate spaces.
Frank is his crafty best and even though his budget won't allow the new floor he craves he's got to pull off a big transformation somehow. Meanwhile Christi has a kitchen that isn't so large, but still manages to have over 30 cabinets in it! Can you say ""painting for homework?""
Handywoman Amy Wynn Pastor has her work cut out for her, but luckily the next door neighbor who happens to also be a builder falls for Paige's beguiling smile and neighborly knock on the door and agrees to help out. And you can smile til your face breaks, but when stainless steel is measured wrong and doesn't fit that's a big problem!
Any episode that has flirting and unrestrained smashing of breakables with a hammer can't be all bad!Read More
We're in Buffalo, New York for this episode with designers Barry Wood and Edward Walker. Will Barry's homeowners go along with his design or will they split (like Barry's pants) to go trash picking?
In their neighbor's house, Edward wants to bring a cosmic contemporary feel to this conventional space. Meanwhile, carpenter Carter Oosterhouse discovers how out of this world Edward's carpentry projects are.
Will Paige help to keep these teams grounded or will they come apart at the seams?Read More

Batten down the hatches there's a storm a' comin! Hurricanes notwithstanding, Trading Spaces weathers a storm of design activity in suburban Philadelphia. Designer Edward Walker tackles a southwest themed living room and charts a decidedly different direction. Kia Steave-Dickerson takes the world's blandest dining room and wants to inject some elegance. But is cutting a hole in the wall really all that elegant? Carpenter Carter Oosterhouse ends up building one project from memory because ... well because the plans blew away, that's why. Remember that hurricane thing? Paige Davis keeps everybody focused on the goal. And the results? Do they love it? Do they hate it? If you watch this episode you'll find out. . . maybe.Read More
Surf's up along the Jersey shore for this Trading Spaces episode and ""Handy"" Andy of BBC America's Changing Rooms has hopped the Big Pond to give a hand to Doug Wilson and Frank Bielec out in Carpentry World.
Inside, Doug is channeling in the nautical vibes of the sun and surf and next door Frank is battling one of the ugliest kitchens in Trading Spaces history! Will Doug be able to make peace with the language differences in the wood shop and understand what the heck Handy Andy is talking about?! Will Frank be able to turn the tides (and the water pipe valves!) and get in touch with his fugly side in his very dated room? Tune in and find out!Read More
Knock. Knock. Who's there? Orange. Orange, who? Orange you glad Hildi didn't paint your kitchen orange?
Hildi Santo-Tomas is given the task of re-designing a plain white kitchen. She decides that this kitchen needs some color and the appliances need to be touched up. It sounds like a recipe for disaster. Can anyone stop Hildi? British Invasion carpenter Handy Andy has come all the way from England to ""have a go at it,"" but Hildi seems determined this time.
Doug Wilson has big problems of his own. The living room that he redecorates has large walls, a large couch, and a large TV. Can his plans live up to this large space or will they fade to black?

Designer Laurence Llewelyn Bowen of the BBC America's Changing Rooms has arrived with a few tricks, some snappy suits, and his revered ""Book of Powers."" (In America we call them plans.) There will be no tricks when it comes to budget, however because host Paige Davis is ready with her electronic currency converter!
Paige better keep a ""good old American dollars"" eye on designer Christi Proctor who is kissing the budget in this nail biter. The good news for carpenter Carter Oosterhouse is that Christi's plans call for only one carpentry project. The bad news is that it's one of the largest projects ever.
Will Christi go over budget? Should our homeowners be afraid of Laurence? More importantly, is America ready for the ""The Book of Powers?""Read More
The British Invasion continues on Trading Spaces. Changing Rooms' designer Anna Ryder Richardson teams up with our own Laurie Smith in this suburban Philadelphia episode.
Anna brings her special flair to Jen and Jonathon's master bedroom. In England ""special flair"" must mean cutting big holes in the wall and ""tights"" or what we in America call panty hose. Laurie is trying to bring a touch more elegance to Mike and Dina's living room, which of course makes you immediately think eggplant and placemats.
Carpenter Carter Oosterhouse is clearly struggling to stay focused on building plans because in his words, Anna is ""cute and has that great accent"". And they say professionalism is dead! Can host Paige Davis avoid an international incident? The reveal reveals allRead More
This could be a Trading Spaces first. We always have two designers, one host, one carpenter and four homeowners. But in this episode we have three designers!
John and Roz want their dining room updated from that ""trapped in the 70's"" look. Edward Walker was all set to do just that when he threw his back out. Kia Steave-Dickerson to the rescue as she comes in at the last second to execute Edward's design for the room. Tricky though, because Edward is flat on his back at home on the other end of the phone trying to give instructions.
Meanwhile, Christi Proctor is down the street redecorating Neecy's living room but where to start? It's a large room that needs attention anywhere you look. To add to the tension Neecy has traded spaces with her brother so if she hates it John will have to hear about it for the next 20 family reunions.
Can Paige Davis keep three designers under budget and on time? Talk about phoning it in! Check this one out.Read More

Hildi has her homeowners expecting the unexpected, as usual. Let's just say that her helpers turn into her favorite ""feathered"" friends for this redecoration of romance.
Meanwhile, Barry is busy creating an international space that will conjure up memories of trips and continents past.

And, as the stars seem to be lined up yet again, Hildi's imagination runs rampant as she delivers another ""first"" in wall treatments. Will the homeowners agree with her vision to think outside the box, or just feel boxed in? And let's just say that Hildi really did lose her mind and fly off the deep end . . . how could you tell? You be the judge.Read More
Atlanta welcomes home its favorite handy man Ty Pennington who gets a surprise serenade from his alma mater's marching band. Yet, once the music's over, it seems Kia Steave-Dickerson is marching to a different tune when she finds out Ty spent $700 on his craftsmanship, leaving her with just a bed and barely a bedroom.

Two steppin' their way into the neighborhood are designers Hildi Santo-Tomas and Edward Walker, with carpenter Amy Wynn Pastor in tow. Edward has big plans to turn his bland master bedroom into a fabulous partitioned space that will reflect the more colorful side of his homeowners. Across the street Hildi uses wrapping paper to gift wrap the walls of her playroom, and you wouldn't believe what she does to the ceiling with a favorite Trading Spaces item: paint cans! Six hundred and fifty of them!!! And because one of our homeowners is a session musician right here in Music City, he serenades while Paige dances. Truly something for everyone is this dandy.
Be sure to tune in and watch as our designers use the ordinary to make the extraordinary.Read More

The Trading Spaces team has headed down to New Orleans and our designers have invoked the Mardi Gras Spirit for a little bit of inspiration.
Designer Edward Walker is devilishly decorating his master bedroom with some Bourbon Street flare, even though his homeowners said ""NO MARDI GRAS!""
Down the street designer Doug Wilson is working ""with"" his country clad kitchen and is trying to recreate a French Bistro feel.
Outside, handy gal Amy Wynn Pastor is there to keep these boys designing on a dime. French Quarter... French Bistro... with all this crazy Cajun influence will our teams think their new rooms are tres jolie or just plain bad! Je ne sais pas!Read More
Old world meets new world in this Trading Spaces episode. Carpenter Amy Wynn Pastor and designers Christi Proctor and Hildi Santo-Tomas have descended on New Orleans and are determined to change the look of two very outdated spaces.
Christi wants to bring the French Quarter feel to her dated dining room and is making a very bold and possibly permanent decision for the walls.

Will these queens of Creole succeed in the end? Tune in to this episode and find out!Read More
""What voodoo would you do?"" With a little help from the supernatural, our designers Barry Wood and Laura Day have descended on New Orleans to redecorate and design two new rooms.
Barry Wood is challenged with the transformation of a very traditional (and very large) living room in an old Creole cottage.
Down the very long and winding road, Laura Day channels in the decorating spirits in order to create a cheerful garden room in a very drab den.
Outside, carpenter Amy Wynn Pastor tries to keep up with all of the crazy Cajun madness that our designers have cooked up. I hope she's better with power tools than she is with our new motorized scooters!

A ""Jumbo"" guest star for Trading Spaces? Can designers Frank Bielec and Hildi Santos Tomas handle While You Were Out's carpenter Andrew Dan-Jumbo? And can he handle double the houses and double the designers?
Always the referee, host Paige Davis is going to have to keep her eye on Hildi who seems to be giving ""Jambo"" (as Hildi insists on calling him) a hard time. And speaking of time... Hildi's running out of it because she has some large plans for this 80's style master bedroom.
Down the road, the homeowners are on the fence about Frank's design plans. He wants to bring the outside in... let's just hope their neighbors still want to be inside when he is finished. Do they like their new master bedrooms? Tune in to find out.Read More
Trading Spaces brings the fine arts to Texas. Or at least that's what designer Doug Wilson is trying to convince his homeowners he's up to. Either way he wants to paint nude figures all over the walls and it requires the services of live nude models for this romantic master bedroom motif. Since the homeowners refused to model, he has to look elsewhere for help.
Meanwhile native Texan Christi Proctor is radically transforming the neighbor's kitchen and no one likes her choice of color and it's possible that their neighbor's favorite rooster might not survive.
No actual animals were harmed in the course of shooting this episode although it looked for a time that carpenter Carter Oosterhouse wanted to inflict a little pain on Doug.
As usual, it's up to Paige Davis to bring it all in on time and under budget. Nude models and a porcelain rooster all in the same episode? That's my kind of redecoration show!Read More
The Trading Spaces crew has rolled into Austin, Texas. Capitalizing on their talents are designers Kia Steave-Dickerson and Laurie Smith who have brought big plans to the Lone Star State.
Carpenter Carter Oosterhouse might have met his match in this episode with two brothers who built their houses from scratch.
Laurie wants to bring the French Riviera to this living room while the homeowners have a different plan for the room. And how much trouble can one empty canvas be? When both homeowners are artists who've never worked on deadline, the result could be disastrous.
Next door, Kia plans to bring crystals and silver to add a new energy to this master bedroom and everyone seems to think Kia's wall color is plain white except for Kia.
Will the homeowners feel the vibe of their new bedroom? Host Paige Davis has her hands full during these reveals.Read More
Deep in the heart of Kyle, Texas, is where we find designers Christi Proctor and Frank Bielec who are saddling up with some innovative plans for our homeowners.
Frank gives new meaning to the phrase everything is bigger in Texas including the bookcases. And it's Carter's job to figure out how to bring it in to the room.
On the other side, Christi finds out how difficult a large kitchen can be and our homeowners find out how difficult a tile backsplash can be.
Will Paige be able to round up theses designers and make sure they bring their plans in on time?Read More
Trading Spaces heads to Tampa and takes on two master bedrooms. Designer Edward Walker is going for big time classic romance in his master bedroom makeover for a former Mrs. Florida and her husband.
Over at the neighbors' house, Christi Proctor is trying to bring an island/tropical/Hemingway sort of feel into this bland boudoir. All carpenter Ty Pennington has to do is build two rooms worth of furniture in two days, that's all!
When Christi's fabric doesn't show up on time and she and Mrs. Florida try to sneak ""off campus,"" Paige Davis catches them on Paige Cam, finds out the destination is SHOPPING and immediately becomes a willing co-conspirator.
We hate to give anything away, but let's just say this is a moist episode because the tears started way back in beginning when Edward just showed the fabric to his team! If pulling some cloth out of a box does that, you can imagine the emotional edge we see by the end of two grueling days!Read More
Four lively, attractive single young women, two designers, one carpenter, 1,000 bucks and two days... oh, and did we mention two condos right across from each other with no space, no parking and no secrecy? Oh yeah, we've got our hands full on this one.
Frank Bielec is up to his impish best in this episode and with this living room/dining room combination, he's really got two rooms to do, not one.
Meanwhile Laurie Smith is dealing with a similar large open living area and she's going for a Tuscan feel complete with arches everywhere and some fancy French sounding Tremeaux mirror project.
Carpenter Faber Dewar is pressed into overtime trying to build everything Frank and Laurie want.
Paige Davis, ""executive director in charge of making sure homeowner's don't see what's happening in their room until the reveal on Day 2"" has got her hands full on this space-challenged condo episode.
Do the ""girls"" live up to their pact with each other not to cry? You'll have to watch for yourself.Read More
Paige introduces us to the 8 couples competing to get their mortgages paid off. Paige also tells us that the neighbors will approve the design, control the budget, & are in conrol. Casting Call Hundreds of homeowners with signs & costumes descend on Home Depot in Orlando, FL on a weekend afternoon in December. They think their trying out for a regular Trading Spaces episode (which is odd- TS was just there late last season.) Strapped to a forklift with a bullhorn in hand, Paige tells the crowd the plan to pay off someone's mortgage. To make the cut, you needed to test your skills in foot painting & toilet racing. Some people even used small children to try to get picked. At Home Depot, 3 skill stations were set up. At the 1st one, hopefuls had to pick fabric swatches out of a bag blindfolded, put them on a board & decide how they'd be used in a room. In the 2nd, homeowners had 60 seconds to drive 6 nails into a piece of wood with only one hammer stroke per nail. In the 3rdRead More
Before this week's teams start, Paige tells us that the Lavender team won last week with 62% of the votes. Homeowner Chats Vilma & Angel want an elegant & relaxing master bedroom. Eddy & Omar want color, but they still want their master bedroom to look ""big."" Key Swap Paige goes over the rules for Home Free, then hands over the keys. Day 0 Designer/ Homeowner Chat Kia, Eddy, & Omar decide they want floors, storage, a headboard, & to reposition the furniture. Frank, Vilma, & Angel decide on a headboard, window treatments, & seating. Paint Reveals This time, the teams have three cans to choose from, but the one they pick is the one that won't be used in the room. Eddy & Omar end up with two shades of off-white. Angel & Vilma have to use dark blue & a near teal color. Budgeting & Shopping Eddy & Omar go for a headboard, an entertainment center, & want to put down a hardwood floor. Angel & Vilma want a headboard made of premade doors, a wall unit, a bench, aRead More
Round and round and round we go, how these rooms look after Day 2, nobody knows. Well actually, designers Hildi Santo-Tomas and Kia Steave-Dickerson have a very good idea how they should look, they just have to convince everyone else to agree with their visions.
Our designing duo has landed in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., to redecorate two very bland rooms for four very spicy homeowners. They'll have the help of our very own spicy carpenter, Carter Oosterhouse.
Hildi has the great challenge of redecorating a dingy and drab refurbished garage/TV room/office/make-up room. Hopefully her homeowners like stripes, color, and more color.
Across the street, Kia has the great challenge of redecorating a boring and blah master bedroom. Her homeowners are beyond passionate and Kia wants to create a very romantic and uh... ""loving"" space. Let's hope they like movement and unconventional furniture!Read More
Before meeting this week's teams, Paige tells us last week's results. With 80% of the votes, the yellow team will be moving on to the semi-finals. Homeowner Chats Jay & Melanie's room is already pretty good. She designed the wall, but they both want something different. They don't want their furniture painted, however, they do want the ceiling fan & carpet gone. Jon & Stacie's room is just the opposite of Jay & Melanie's. Their bed doesn't have a headboard & they don't have much new furniture. It does have big windows & a tray ceiling. Key Swap Paige hands out $2000 to each team & goes over the rules. They then proceed with possibly the largest key swap ever- one key is on a giant disco ball & the other is attached to a large key. Day0 Designer/ Homeowner Chat The Light Blue team wants more light in the room & Hildi wants to mow the carpet. The Orange team wants drama & romance, while Edward was thinking something far Eastern. Paint Challenge This time, the teamsRead More

Down the road, Laurie tries to save her tile flooring in her teeny master bedroom to no avail! How will she manage to pull this room to shore?Read More
Christi is going to be working with the dark blue team, Scott & Tammy, while Laurie will be working with the red team, Bishop (aka Smitty) & Angela. Homeowner Chats The Blue team wants rich, warm colors. They have a dresser/ armoire with their TV on top of it.

Question: What happens when you take two designers and turn them loose inside a big ol' house Trading Spaces ""style?""
This episode finds us in two huge, enormous, gigantic, massive, and colossal houses not far from Miami. And for some unexplainable reason, these extremely well-to-do folks have actually invited us into their homes! Not for dinner ... not for a soak and a sauna ... and not for a game of tennis.

Edward is taking on a plain old guest room in the east wing of this palatial estate, and nothinRead More
For the semi-finals, the teams will be working on living rooms. Due to the distance between the houses, each team will have their own designer, so both Trading Spaces trailers will be used for the Carpentry Worlds. The Yellow team, Angel & Vilma, are going to be working with designer, Edward Walker, & carpenter, Amy Wynn pastor. The Lavender team, Glen & Justine, are going to work with designer Doug Wilson & Carter Oosterhouse as carpenter. Key Swap Paige tells the teams that the budget has been upped to $10,000. $5,000 of that has already been spent. She also gives both teams an envelope that has instructions in it, but they can't open it until they are with the designer & carpenter they'll be working with. Day 0 Designer Chat Glen & Justine didn't care for the Green team's room. ""But they love Doug,"" according to Glen. They call the room ""Sassy Caribbean"" Angel wants to put up an unusual wall unit that is modern with a touch of contemporary. Since the homeowners dRead More
What happens if you hold an episode of Trading Spaces and nobody comes? Well, not nobody exactly, but what if all four show carpenters are busy and the homeowners can only shoot those days and what d'ya do? Well episode 36 is what you do.
You get designers Doug Wilson and Hildi Santo Tomas to strap on tool belts and head into carpentry world and in addition to designing and sewing and painting, they're now sawing, nailing and building.
Now you'd think that with this daunting task ahead of them they might scale back and build something like your 7th grade shop project just to go easy on themselves... but you'd be wrong about that. Doug tackles a huge entertainment unit in his living room and Hildi constructs an entire fake fireplace build-out! Paige Davis jumps into the middle of it all and the results are really something to be seen.

Designer Frank ""Shotgun"" Bielec introduces a new way to distress furniture. Will the homeowners love the idea or go running for the hills? One thing is for sure, everybody should take cover.
Across the farm, designer Genevieve Gorder is once again all about ""bringing the outside in"", but she's already done moss once... could this time turn out to be a hit? It's up to carpenter Faber Dewar to make those dead oak trees work somehow as a mantle piece.
We always have homework on the show, but rarely does it involve a cow giving birth. Only one of the unusual events in this unforgettable episode.

With 70% of a nationwide vote, the Light Blue Team of Jon and Stacy Laymon of Ocoee, Florida, have won the eight-week competition that was Trading Spaces: Home Free over Angel and Vilma Rivera of Kissimmee, Florida. They won up to $350,000 to pay off their mortgage.

Designers Christi Proctor and Edward Walker have come into town wanting to shake up some outdated spaces. Christi will be taking on an artsy and over-cluttered living room and will try to make it as whimsical and creative as the folks who lounge in it.
Down the road, Edward says ""Stuffed Animals be gone!"" Our tough L.A. cop has to say goodbye to his plush ducks and bears that usually hang out on his bed in the master bedroom. Hopefully he will be able to sleep without them once he sees the mature and classic room Edward creates for him.
Outside carpenter Faber Dewar enjoys the sunshine as he builds some fabulous pieces for some fabulous rooms. Tune in, this is one episode you don't want to miss!Read More
Doug Wilson and Hildi Santo-Tomas...
To some, their designs might be considered on the extreme end of the spectrum. But when their forces combine they are each others yin and yang... their black and their white.
This episodes brings us to West Hollywood, California and our dynamic duo is determined to create rooms with very different elements but very similar energies. Let's hope carpenter Carter Oosterhouse will be able to keep balance outside and our colorful homeowners don't really have a bunch of colors in mind. And what could have happened in this episode to make Paige more therapist than host for one of our homeowner teams?
This Trading Spaces story begs the question: What's black and white (not red) all over?Read More
This episode finds us in the bodacious city of Manhattan Beach, California with some young sun and surf loving folks. Designers Genevieve Gorder and Hildi Santo-Tomas are ready to ride one in with our very own beach bum, carpenter Ty Pennington.
Hildi is here to help two lovely, young professionals who want to make their living room look more grown up and sophisticated. Two doors down, Genevieve is trying to make one gross and barren living room a little more hip and cool (aka ""lady friendly"") for the former frat brothers who live there.
Outside, the ever righteous Ty keeps his hammer moving to the beat of the ocean gods and a drum set.
Tune in to find out if our teams keep their toes on the nose and get a totally gnarly space, or if they have one nasty wipe out of a room!Read More
Trading Spaces always looks for neighbors who live right next to each other. These homeowners do... if you don't count the very large lake that stands between them! The utility vehicle of choice in this episode is a powerboat which tries to deliver more than a boatload of Amy Wynn Pastor's carpentry projects in these two rooms.
Designer Frank Bielec has a big floor and a big floor problem to solve in his family room and he comes up with a clever solution. Meanwhile Laura Day is trying to transform a drab kitchen and give it some sparkle with stainless steel... but do tools that normally love to work in wood also love stainless steel?
It's a race to the finish and halfway through Paige and Wynn run out of gas and with the ladies stranded in the middle of the lake what does gentleman Frank Bielec do? Why what any good designer would do, he tries to blackmail Paige by trading a rescue rope for some slack in his room budget. If they didn't love each other so much, they'd probably kill eachRead More
Double Trouble. There's no other way to describe an episode with identical twin sisters, living in identical houses only 10 feet apart, redecorating the exact same room. The only real difference is that one twin has a clear acrylic bed with mirrors over the top! And that's what most of this episode is ... over the top!
Hildi Santo Tomas tackles the one twin master bedroom, while Edward Walker takes a crack at the mirror image next door while working with this husband and wife chiropractor team.

And don't look now but she's come up with yet another unconventional way to cover a wall without paint, and if I'm not mistaken that looks like silver foil again!
