Behind the Scenes: Makeover for “The Doctors”

We asked the fabulous ladies of Little Crown Interiors, Naomi Alon and Gerri Panebianco, if they would give us a behind the scenes look into the design of the room for The Doctors makeover. Designing for television is much different than designing for a customer, mainly because it requires an extremely quick turnaround time. To learn more about how Little Crown Interiors and Rosenberry Rooms put this room together from start to finish in less than a week, and to see the before and after photos of the room, keep reading!

On February 22nd, Little Crown Interiors had the pleasure of meeting the O’Hara family– subjects of an upcoming episode of the daytime talk show The Doctors – for the first time.  On February 23rd, we started placing orders from Rosenberry Rooms, and on February 27th (yes – that’s less than 1 week later) – cameras rolled on the completed room.

In those short 5 days, we designed a room that usually takes us months to complete.  The first step: our concept board. This is our tool to get a feel for how the pieces will work together.

Next, choose, order, ship, and deliver.  Here’s where the fantastic team of Rosenberry Rooms came to the rescue.  Each piece arrived on time and in perfect shape…

Headboard, bedding, pillows, bed crown and new lampshade…

Wall Monogram…

Clock…

Sofa and rug…

Dresser, side table, curtains and lampshade…

Once delivered, we went straight to work re-making the room, leaving nothing untouched.  Take a good look at these “before” pictures, because the “after” pictures are extremely different.

First, we covered the existing bead board paneling with paintable wallpaper. Then we painted the wallpaper and walls in 2 beautiful shades of ballerina pink.

We removed everything from the room, and then added the new furniture using an entirely new floor plan.

We added hand painted flower murals to the wall, and embellished them with sparkling rhinestones.

Once completed, the room was ready for our big “Reveal!”. Little Ella loves her new bedroom, and we’re all hopeful that her new surroundings will give her the confidence and desire to sleep in her own bed at night.
