If you've always wondered just how the homes you see in magazines and right here in our Original Home Tours look so pulled together, then set your alarm and plant yourself on the couch for designer Sam Pynn's one-hour special, The Mix, airing today at 11am and 9pm ET.
In The Mix, Sam visits several stylish homes that showcase the ideal mix of old, new and personal flair. Think of Sam as your decor sherpa, leading you through the snowy Himalayas of design confusion to bring you answers and clarity. How do you layer tone on tone? How do you accessorize without going overboard? How do you fit a dining area into a small space?
But one hour of Sam isn't enough, right? Of course not! Coming soon, we're got seven webisodes based on The Mix that provide an in-depth look at the homes featured on the special. Sam breaks down the specific style of each home and explains how the elements all work together.
Don't forget you can watch both seasons of Pure Design, see all the photos and get the shopping information whenever you like. And, if that's not enough design inspiration, check out our six-part web series, The Switch, where Sam takes one room and gives it two different looks by switching out a few key items.
