3 Interior Designers Transform The Same Backyard | Space Savers | Architectural Digest

  • čas přidán 19. 06. 2023
  • We gave interior designers Sasha Bikoff, Becky Carter, and Courtney McLeod a photo of the same backyard-then asked each of them to create a new design for it in their particular style, however they pleased with no restrictions. Three artists, one canvas, each bringing something different to the space. See which designer comes closest to creating your dream garden oasis.

    As a landscape architect, I can’t tell you how much I hate these for a backyard

    • IdanceAlways&4ever
      IdanceAlways&4ever Před 3 měsíci +67

      What specifically do you hate as a landscape architect? Just so we understand your perspective better. Edited to correct do to so

      @IdanceAlways&4ever I would like to know too. I personally feel that a garden needs plants. Something for humans to connect with nature. Where you can get inspired by life and growth. None of these designs make that happen. Just more artificial living and zero grounding.

      As an architect i agree with you ahahaha

    • : D
      : D Před 2 měsíci +245

      ⁠@IdanceAlways&4everi am not an architect, i am a student though, so i am going to list what i thought was horrible.
      1. ALL of these spaces seem like interior, not an outside space, they feel like enclosed rooms and they removed all the greenery.
      2. Seating spaces are not protected or the materials of the couches are not water-resistant, theres no way in real life someone would leave a white couch in their garden without protection, and then move it in every time it rains, illogical.
      3. The space is not big, and yet, everything feels like an exhibition instead of making use of the little space that is there. Idk the name but the girl who made the shallow pool (just for aesthetic purposes) instead of just making a regular pool to use. Its not like you have 500m yard and you have space for pools and shallow water fountains. Most of the stuff just feels like an advertisement honestly, “i am using this wallpaper by xx” or “this sculpture by xy”
      4. The plan on paper is HORRIBLE. Even first year students dont make such incorrect plans. Do all interiors designers make plans like those, or is it just in america?
      There could be a lot of other stuff in there that could throw me off but i wont bother anymore. I wouldn’t let any of these ppl design my house ever, including all the others who have been on this channel, not that i would need to.

      Thank you! Yes! As an architect student, I felt really annoyed watching this video. Architecture is not about ornamentation, the decisions we make must be logical, practical and problem-solving, based on historical, spacial, anthropological and geographical studies.

    I love how they all have to try and say something positive about the others, even though they all have such different tastes. They can't really say "omg yours is even more impractical than mine!" "Omg yours is safe and beige, but actually somewhat liveable" "Omg yours is happy in a sort of drug-induced feverdream way!"

    Got to say, I love this series so much. However, this is probably the first time that I really couldn't find anything in the three designs that I actually liked .

    • FolkFaninMA
      FolkFaninMA Před 2 měsíci +18

      I liked elements in two of the designs, but none of them wholly. The arched doors were nice and the white roses on a trellis were nice, but those sculptures in the one with the arched doors, no thanks. And the one with the roses was almost too bland though I did like her seating better. That third one…..yikes. It hurts my eyes.

  • Timothy Robert
    Timothy Robert Před 3 měsíci +353

    Sasha's was my favorite, easily something I could see being done really successfully. Backy's was a little too much for me, a bit disjointed, and I definitely would be falling into that pool. Courtney's was really fun, very Alice in Wonderland, and perfect for the eclectic family, very whimsical.

    • Pilar

      Beckys was my favourite up until the pool podiums and water wall thing were added. So I agree with you about Sasha's being the favourite (except for the flowers on the walls.)

    • Nln Cvn
      Nln Cvn Před 3 měsíci +12

      ⁠@fred fredburger agree. I disliked the pool podiums and water fountain panel. Becky’s design was great untill she added those and also sculptures, maybe one sculpture would have been fine. Sasha’s design is nice but white roses on the walls were a little accessive, yes.

    • Beysment’s security camera
      Beysment’s security camera Před 3 měsíci +8

      @fred fredburgerthe water wall was f fun and cool to me … the “pet” structure was when I didn’t like it anymore, it feel impractical and dangerous to swim in

    Team Sasha (13:59): Sasha added reasonable privacy, neutrality and comfort. I also appreciate her adaptation of the staircase😊

  • Haphazard
    Haphazard Před 3 měsíci +65

    I like Becky's design with the green tiles, the timber doorways, balcony and fences. I would not have the water feature at all, just a nice, green lawn complementing the two contrasting fences. To my eye the water feature made a serene design look messy, plus water features are over rated. Just a whole lot of trouble to maintain.

    • Rebekah Tablante
      Rebekah Tablante Před 13 dny

      Agreed! Didn’t she say this was like a NY backyard? No one in NY wants a water feature in their backyard unless they can pay someone to clean/maintain it.

  • Atlanta Homes for Sale
    Atlanta Homes for Sale Před 3 měsíci +161

    All 3 designs were interesting and unique but my vote goes to Sasha's design. However, I would need to add some color to make it complete. So, instead of white roses, I would opt for red or pink and add some colored throw pillows to the seats. Finally, because I like a low maintenance backyard, I would replace the grass with tile. Then, it would be time to invite some friends over for an outdoor party.

    • ohnana
      ohnana Před 3 měsíci +10

      that's what I've been telling myself the entire video. It looks kinda dull. it was nice adding those plants at the end but it needs a bit more color or texture/pattern..

    • Ricky Loftin
      Ricky Loftin Před 3 měsíci +54

      Personally think it’s far too big for the garden yet still not big enough to be practical as a swimming pool. There is no space to put any furniture on the ground floor and even the pillows are impractical to get around

    • Beca C
      Beca C Před 2 měsíci +2

      I agree. It was the only design I loved, but it would need some adjustments to make it practical.
      No bases in the pool, more light for inside the pool, and some texture and staining for the glass to be safer and more private. Maybe add a pop of color, maybe a matching red to the fountain?
      Other than that, I would love me some sculptures and maybe change the deck sitting area up there, to the first floor, and have some cushy and more comfortable and loungy sitting area, like a "coffee table" with some comfortable couches or something, cause some privacy up there would be really nice instead of "dinner" when the backyard is GORGEOUS and you could sit up there drinking some wine by yourself or with your partner!

  • Pam J

    One of these designs look like a children’s space, another looks trendy but overcrowded, and the third looks cool and livable. I bet everyone can guess which is which.

    They were all hotel backyards! This episode pushed my boundaries more than any episode so far, maybe because I really love city backyards that are gardens with trees, bushes and flowers. I can see the creativity and fun and there were some things I might like in a different context, and I realize it's not meant to be practical, but all the designs made me cringe a bit.

    "Hotel courtyard" is exactly what I was thinking about Courtney's design. I also think it would be terrible to look out at during autumn and winter. I like Terrrazzo, but it feels like a bit of a depressing material when it encompasses the entirety of the yard. I really enjoy Becky's the most. While not terribly practical, it is stunning and transportive. Sasha's design is beautiful and certainly the most practical, retaining some use value for dog owners or people who just like the feeling of grass on their feet. Her spiral staircase really makes it for me.

    I was really holding my breath for Courtney's design it didn't turn out bad as I thought. My favorite is Becky Carter's,the ability to put flora on a backyard space makes it breathtakingly beautiful . I hope this series is produced oftenly it's one thing I'm always looking forward to.

  • Dawn Guinto
    Dawn Guinto Před 3 měsíci +78

    I am so confused by Sasha Bikoff's design aesthetic and signature.
    She describes her style as worldy, fun, and glamorous. We see her portfolio. I've personally seen her other works in other youtube videos like the barbiecore Homeworthy video. Her style seems to screams "Marie Antoinette maximalist rainbow glam."
    Yet in the two AD interior designer challenges she's been in, she goes for a sleek chic morddernist look. Inoffensive and current editorial interior design magazine trendy look.
    Idk if she's muting her actual style to impress the other interior designers or the audience or if it's her actual style and taste but the contrast is hard to wrap your head around.

    • Dawn Guinto

      Kenny Chesty Před 3 měsíci +14

      I feel like I got more of her vibe in the kitchen video with the whimsical disco-esque moments but this seems to have lost its flair. It was extremely well done but I do think she may have thought too much about others and not enough about herself.

  • Philip Harville
    Philip Harville Před 2 měsíci +1

    This is fun! Sasha's is easily my favorite, it feels more simplistic and streamlined, and the most like a backyard.
    I appreciate the whimsical character and colors of Courtney's design, although removing all the grass really turned me off.
    As for Becky's...there are a few nice elements, but overall, it is wayyy too cluttered and busy. Even the pool felt unusable by the end, as it had the sculptures in it.
    Ultimately, this was a fun creative exercise! But I agree with the comments - I'd love to see this same exercise done by landscape architects, not interior designers. ♥

    SIMLAS Před 11 dny

  • Isabella Ceja
    Isabella Ceja Před 3 měsíci +10

    Lol I love pieces of all their designs but feel like I’m crazy for wanting the backyard to be somewhere I can run around or garden not just sit and host. Maybe it’s the introvert in me but all their spaces make me feel like “if I have this space then I have to invite people over to enjoy too”. Also I was so into Courtney’s idea at first and then she basically blocked out that lower window and it bummed me out.

    I love these triple scoops of design charettes. The bravery of each designer's taste and a brief insight into their thinking makes me appreciate their choices so much more than if i were, say, flipping through an AD magazine and going on quick, gut-instict- hooked appreciation or rejection, if that makes sense. It's design determinedly taking on diversity, beauty in difference, looking beyond the fences in my own safe and comfy backyard, as we must do now in every way.

  • La Verite
    La Verite Před 3 měsíci +57

    They all look amazing!! Courtney is the only one that did a design that is truly feasible to actually build on a remodel. You can't magically cantilever a deck and remove the support posts. Courtney used a spiral stair case system that is engineered and stable.

    I really love the ideas and colors in Becky's design but frankly I would be tripping into that pool and knocking those statues over 😅. I like how colorful Courtney's is and the tiled floor reminds me of a lot of courtyards I've seen. I just think the furniture doesn't look comfortable for lounging at all. Sasha's is very calming and simple, makes me feel like I'm in a retreat house.

    Becky was on her way to slaying me again with an amazing design, but it just got too busy for me. The biggest problem was the fountain, which feels too massive and busy, unbalanced the space, and brings in one too many colors for it to feel unified. If it was half as thick, a little calmer, and in a less provocative color, it would be perfect. And of course none of those sculptures are necessary either. Sorry Becky!! Sasha won me over this time 😍

    I cannot belive that 3 different professional designers haven't include trees or more greenery in their backyard. I mean... this is 2023... green infrastructures and biodiversity in cities is the new terrazzo. I would call these "welcome to my private heat island".

    It's so interesting to watch how designers make decisions! I love your designs. It was so interesting to watch.

    I'm so sorry but the only one I liked like completely was Sasha's. She brought such a beautiful vibe to the backyard. It literally felt like you could have a movie scene in it especially with the white roses on the walls. I legit had a cover-of-the-mouth gasp moment when I saw those get added it tied it in so well like a perfect bow. It wasn't much of a "Trust the process" type of thing like the others, I genuinely loved each section of her thought process! It legit looked so cunty and I adored it to the end.
    Becky's design felt a little cluttered, but I semi-liked it! The statues I would've declined as a suggestion in my backyard, but they made a statement.
    Now Courtney's... *SIGHS...* I disliked it so much. So cluttered, so much to look at, not my vibe but it's probably someone else's vibe. I legit wanted to throw the chairs away even though this was a 3D render- It felt like something you'd see in The Lorax.

    Becky’s colours and textures spoke to me most, but the space ended up being too crowded because she was so ambitious. Courtney’s made me anxious. I would probably go for Becky 😁

    Sasha's > family friendly and chic
    Courtney's > fun, like a Barbie's house or playground
    Becky's > just toooooooo much! I liked the pool though

      So is it really pool? Or just a giant water feature for you to pit your feet into?

  • labyrinthminds
    labyrinthminds Před 2 měsíci +1

    I know Courtney's can be a bit jarring but she literally said, "backyard of her dreams" and I feel like her and Becky stuck with the "no clients, no restrictions" concept. Personally, I would love to integrate some of Becky's choices minus the water feature and the unnecessary furniture and decor pieces but overalls I love all of these unhinge concepts!

    Courtney's design started out the most interesting to me, and except for paving the whole thing, seemed an enjoyable and multifunctional space. I am just flabbergasted that noone mentioned Hundertwasser as a direct reference, especially with those columns and chairs.

    Fun to look at in the drawings. I appreciate their discussion very much. Hopefully all 3 of them would add in their client's need and so be held in check by their clients.

  • Ashley Baker

    Nobody held back I am obsessed 😝 even if they aren’t Al my personal vibe I love that they all created a space they’d want for themselves rather than thinking of potential clients like some have in the past

    I think it’s interesting that two of the designers completely got rid of the grass. I feel like grass would be desired by a lot of people

    Beckys design is my dream yard! I would probably go with smaller art pieces because I like the idea of using the lily pads to lounge on or put my drink on when I’m swimming!

    Love Sasha's design!! Even though spiral staircases are not for me, it was fantastic :D Becky's was really interesting and impresive....minus the wall fountain (a little too much for me). Cortney's.....just no. Definitely no U_U

  • joe

    I love them but as someone who suffers with panic attacks, the amount of pattern and stuff in the garden is making me panic. If I was to design this it would have to be simplistic and minimalistic. If I had to say which is my favourite I would have to go with Sasha's

    I love Sasha design but when she removed the stairs and extended the stucco balcony to the neighbor's yard I would have to ask if this infringes the neighbor's property line? That is of course if the property line is over the purple fence or is the fence.

    To be fair, Sacha really nailed the mid 70's French/European luxury vibe.
    To all the people that watches this serie, I think it's more about the creative process than the practicality. Most of the design they do would be a pain to live in. They are beautiful, they certainly have features that would be awesome, but they are mostly not something cathered for humans.

    I love Sasha’s and Becky’s. Although I would want a little more contrast in Becky’s design. Too much brown.. I love the green tiles! I wish that fountain in her design was an off white stone or tile instead of brown

    A fun little series, but I was lost when the windows/stairs were just swaped out. I feel like at that point the idea of having the same space designed differently by different designers kind of went out of.... well, the window.

    I loved the designer who said she'd encourage the neighbor to plant a flowering tree, as if that could happen in a real scenario. I was interested in how they'd handle the FENCES / PROPERTY LINE, but with no real neighbors, there's no need to. . . . I guess someone could say they want everything made out of solid gold and they could retire on that quick fix, as could the clients. ... . .. . . . . .......... . . . . . . . .To be fair though, i love the "Design on a Dime" theme, the "Let's go to the flea market and Target !" approach, the "CLEVER" ness of design for the masses. . . . . ....... .. . I like these fantasy design charrettes that are or are almost anchored to reality, where there's STRONGLY-DRIVEN, DEMANDED CREATIVITY & EXCITEMENT BROUGHT BY REALITY, with a budget, idea of a location, suggested clients, and did i mention a BUDGET?
