For everyone who has ever fantasized about HGTV showing up in an 18-wheeler, knocking on their door and telling them they're getting a home makeover, that dream is about to come true in the network's new series, "HGTV'd", hosted by Tanika Ray. Fans who uploaded room photos and videos to HGTV.com could be selected for an awe-inspiring, once-in-a-lifetime surprise makeover by one of the network's popular interior designers. (Source: HGTV)
HGTV'd joins forces with ultra-cool designer Antonio Ballatore in scenic Salt Lake City to help engaged couple, Ana and Todd. Their living room and kitchen that haven't been updated since the house was built in the '50s. The design team kick starts the makeover by tearing down a wall that divides the two spaces - ripping up not one, not two, but three mismatched floors! But that's just the beginning! The kitchen is transformed from the ground up with cork floors, sleek cabinets and custom-made countertops. In the living space, a coat closet is ingeniously converted into a bar area, floating granite shelves go in and a rickety, wooden staircase gets a cool, industrial makeover. Next, Antonio personalizes the space by creating colorful pop art for the walls, using personal pictures from the couple as inspiration. Even Clementine, the couple's beloved French bulldog, gets a custom dog house complete with matching artificial grass, disco ball, and a graffiti-tagged exterior!
