The Cohens finally had their dream apartment with big, beautiful windows and other architectural details that made the apartment distinctive. But the place was too neutral, just a big white box really, and the owners preferred to keep it that way.

So in order to make the apartment fun, interesting, chic, and really pop, we used bold blasts of color in the furniture and art to make the space really fantastic. The art also gave the apartment its character.

To make your own environment look cool, invest your budget in bright throw pillows, a colorful carpet, unusual art (it doesn’t have to be expensive!), and lots of funky vintage furniture mixed with contemporary pieces. Don’t forget cool accessories that will help define the space in a more exciting way.

    I have to admit I'm not as drawn to the show because I miss the whole dynamic of you two interacting with your wonderful children! Wish there was more time with you family.

    OK, I just had to watch my second episode of this couple and found it even more awful than the first one. The show tonight was the "design" of two guys' main floor living space. I won't even go into how it looked – I'll lend you that "beauty is in the eye…" but focus on how utterly revolting it was to use old beat up metal GYM lockers to store kitchenware – dishes, etc. People had put nasty sweaty grimy smelly stuff in there and all they did was brag about how they did NOTHING to this "vintage" piece. UGGGHHHHH! I'm not a hygiene freak by any means, but that's disgusting. On another note, one of the other comments posted was a wish that you had more time with your family of SEVEN children because of your oh-so-busy careers. How selfish people can be in their "collection" of children…..What's next with your showbiz ambition? TWENTY kids and counting by Navogratz? I at least hope you don't store the dishes and silverware they eat from in rusty flaking chipped metal gym lockers that once held sweaty jock straps.
