3 Interior Designers Create Their Dream Basement Party Room | Space Savers | Architectural Digest

  • čas přidán 23. 09. 2023
  • We gave interior designers Sasha Bikoff, Becky Carter, and Courtney McLeod a photo of the same basement rec room-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 underground hangout.

    this time all designs were great but Becky's karaoke basement scratched every itch that I have. the muted pink, the shapes, the images on the walls, art nouveau elements. please continue this series indefinitely, it's one of those I drop everything to watch immediately.

    • isabelle white
      isabelle white Před 2 měsíci +7

      The only element that is missing is the cost of each makeover! It's a shame not to include the cost of each element with a total cost

    While I love this series and how they’re allowed to go crazy, I’d love to see a series where they have a hypothetical client!

    • Kevin Kroll
      Kevin Kroll Před měsícem +7

      Maybe not a client, but a more realistic constraint like you couldn’t move or take out the windows or move the vents in this example. It’d be more realistic for what people could actually do with their own spaces.

    • BrandonIsWhoIAm
      BrandonIsWhoIAm Před měsícem

      @Kevin Kroll, in one of the videos… one of the designers confirmed that they’re not allowed to remove walls.

    Love this series so much. Haven’t missed an episode. This time, I most love Becky’s karaoke lounge. It’s exquisite!

  • SpoiledDollLife
    SpoiledDollLife Před 2 měsíci +363

    Becky wins this challenge for me!! Courtney's piano lounge was a too busy of a visual trip, clashing walls and carpet, with the wrong color piano, she should have went with a black piano, and Sasha with the fabric ceiling made the room look claustrophobic, just my opinion!!

    • FolkFaninMA
      FolkFaninMA Před 2 měsíci +20

      That tented ceiling also blocks the vents. Those vents are probably important. I thought Becky’s ceiling treatment also blocked them, but noticed in the final rendering that she did expose them.

    • jacquelyntee
      jacquelyntee Před 2 měsíci +5

      Fully agree. I adore Becky's design and can see myself in that room. I like all the elements of Courtney's but not together. I feel physically ill just looking at Sasha's - I wouldn't be able to go in that room without falling over and/or throwing up

    Becky’s design made the room feel so much bigger!! Looked like a hotel lounge! As for the other two… Sasha’s looked like a secret swingers club. And Courtney’s… Ooooof. ˙◠˙

    Becky's karaoke basement was the clear winner here! Interesting to see everyone's vision for this room though.

    Cinema Wisdom Před 2 měsíci +64

    Each one is fabulous and wonderful! Courtney's works best for me, because she kept the windows, which reduces my claustrophobic feelings about the other two. I wonder why none of them enlarged the windows?

    • limeylena
      limeylena Před 2 měsíci +11

      That was my initial idea too, but I'm guessing that the instructions were that because it's a basement, the assumption is the windows go down to the ground and therefore are immovable. Sort of like how they wouldn't let Becky knock down a wall in the galley kitchen episode.

    All so different and fun. Loved the vibes on Becky Carter's stylish, sophisticated creation until the very end (the chrome disco ball). But, all-in-all, beautiful attention to detail.

  • Sydney Chandler

    There were elements I liked with all of the designs. Each is unique and doable. But Courtney is just so pleasant and likeable and so is her design.

  • unfilthy
    unfilthy Před měsícem +2

    Lovely nightclub/bar/lounge designs. I think it's interesting that they all went with that type of space and none of them went with what would be considered a rec room, but at least all their party spaces were fun.

  • Mark Tyler

  • Marlene

    Wow usually I have a clear favorite or don't like at least one of the designs - but this time - they were all fabulous!! Also interesting how Becky and Sasha both had rainbow and discoball inspirations but displayed them in different ways.

  • Verlene Howard

  • u
    u Před 2 měsíci +3

    Suggestion: for each room give them a tiny bit of context - people, apartment, location. For example: young couple, 2 bedroom apartment, city center.
    It would instantly make their designs more comparable with each other, and we could enjoy the different approaches and design ideas for the same room.
    Love the show :)

  • Leona Djimbi
    Leona Djimbi Před 2 měsíci +8

    BECKY'S ROOM!!!?!?!?!?! HELLOOOOOO!!!! It's amazing! I. absolutely love everything about it. The colors, the ceiling, the bar, the STAINED WINDOW!!! At first I was iffy about the wall design with the dancing figures but it looks incredible. I live for this room, I love this room. 10/10. Bye.

  • BlairWaldorf2013
    BlairWaldorf2013 Před 2 měsíci +49

    I think a lot of people are not used to having imagination so they can’t see beyond a 1,2,3 mindset (despite what they may think) when allowed to go fill *creative* most people stick with what they’ve seen.
    I like that Courtney really goes for it, it’s also interesting that people didn’t have a problem with Darren or Noz did similar things when a bunch of patterns and colors but when Courtney does it suddenly stuff is too busy…

    • farah
      farah Před 2 měsíci +16

      you can't compare noz and darren to her. Their styles are completely different just because they use colors, doesn't mean that they share the same style. Their designs are out of this world and their imaginations are really wild

  • L Marshall
    L Marshall Před 2 měsíci +1

    Sasha's room is very overwhelming for me & triggers my anxiety. Does the fabric tent on the ceiling cause a fire hazard being so close to the light fixture?
    Becky's room is super cool! I don't like the actual images on the wall, I do like the design overall.
    I love the colors in Courtney's room it seems the most functional.

  • beargrub
    beargrub Před 2 měsíci +3

    i agree with everyone in the comments that the karaoke room is definitely the winner for me
    i could do without the light fixtures on the walls and the disco ball honestly but everything else feels so grand and luxurious and also just fun and exciting

  • Life Soul Centered
    Life Soul Centered Před měsícem +1

    For the first time in a while, all 3 designers created something unique and beautiful instead of something so outlandish it made me think, "they can't be serious." I actually can't choose a favorite...I like them all! Each had a beautiful and unique charm. I could see myself doing karaoke in each of these rooms. In one room I'd lounge in that sunken couch area, in another I'd dance on the raised platforms around the walls, in another I'd play the piano and have a drink on that gorgeous beige tufted couch. All 3 designers did an amazing job! Congrats! Thank you for finding people with believable styles that appeal to most people instead of a select few.

  • The Shy Persistence

    To me it reads more lux speakeasy than karaoke bar, but Becky once again knocks it out the park!

  • Peter Jacobson
    Peter Jacobson Před měsícem

    All three are very strong looks! Too strong? I think Becky Carter's karaoke room was the most successful partly because she had a clear idea of how the room would function. Becky had the idea 'me and my friends' where the others went to one celebrity client. It felt complete to me before the sconces and hanging ball went in but everything in there worked together like it belonged together. Perhaps the lamps are different. Becky and Courtney McLeod both got the idea of how you could be in different places in room (standing, seated). I like Courtney kept the windows because, well, as an apartment dweller natural light is not easily tossed aside. Courtney's space is flexible on this front as well.. you wouldn't feel too insane sitting in there in the daytime with a book or a friend.

  • Maria Seppanen
    Maria Seppanen Před měsícem +2

    I love Becky's karaoke basement, i think it has a bit of a secret spot on the house to have fun with friends. Courtney piano bar it's cool and chill and relax , at first I thought it would be great fir a bookclub but then i change my mind, with that 1920s vibe and art deco. Sasha when all in , it's a fun , futuristic and enthusiastic place to club
