Every design dork has a special place in their heart for reality television (Trading Spaces, House Hunters, Top Design, etc), so all my dreams came true when I realized there was a reality show about remodeling my old apartment.
I have loved the show, Flipping Out with Jeff Lewis, for years. I knew he remodeled Chaz Dean's hair salon (located behind my apartment building), and I knew Chaz Dean purchased my building, but I had no idea that the remodel would be featured on his show. I'm the luckiest girl in the world!
At first they just showed some images of the empty interior, but then they ripped everything out!
This is the rendering for the exterior, and it looks remarkably like the finished product (because I have driven by the actual building). I wouldn't be surprised if someone just drew the finished product and the show passed it off as a concept rendering.
