House Crashers host Josh Temple of installed a handmade tile fireplace surround that acts as the focal point of the new master suite. It's so intricate that it needs only a simple sunburst mirror to dress up the fireplace wall.
Instead of remodeling the fireplace, the designers at b+g design installed custom cabinetry for a completely remodeled look. They incorporated vibrant red accents to counterbalance the traditional architecture.
Designer Elizabeth Gordon incorporated cool blues and greens to mimic the adjacent garden. She replaced the fireplace surround with white marble to create a striking contrast with the home's Neo-Colonial architectural style.
Josh Temple Crashes Blog Cabin and has big plans for the living and sunroom. The Blog Cabin is one blank slate so Josh completely transforms the living space in just three days. A reclaimed mantle is rebuilt to house a brand new TV and automated lift. Plus, a stair area becomes a seating and storage area. This crash goes above and beyond when a sunroom gets old dock boards as a ceiling treatment and some 100 year old stumps are reused for a one of a kind coffee table.
Josh Temple takes on one of the ugliest kitchens in House Crashers history to bring an international flair to this LA couple. They'll gut the place top to bottom, then build an enchanting mecca for all things gourmet gastronomy. Two entrances and the range hood are faced in Moroccan arches that lead to colorful teal lower cabinets and clean white uppers. All new appliances include a 6-burner cooktop accentuated by a sweet curved pattern backsplash and silver laced travertine floor tile. Two rolling kitchen islands inlaid with stainless steel and trimmed in mahogany doubles the portable counter space, while a custom maple and mahogany cutting board with two matching barstools unify the space with elegance and the ultimate in usability.
Josh and the House Crashers crew find a couple who need a new bedroom in the Big Easy. The space is large and long, with much of it wasted, and offering very little storage.

A new closet is built into the corner and custom cabinetry clads several walls. Antique french doors are installed, vintage windows are used to create a small room divider while new lights and paint take the room over the top.

Josh Temple and the House Crasherscrew try and rescue a huge sunroom that has been turned over to eight cats. The renovation begins with three walls of glass being imploded at once. What follows is a complete remake of this useless room. First fixed, bifold and accordion glass panels are added to three walls. Next Josh shows the homeowners how to create custom elements for the room like white wall panels, a wooden rug and a beautiful game table. The room is capped off with an indoor/outdoor bar with it's own redwood deck, new paint and lighting and all new designer furniture. When it's time for the final reveal, the homeowners are speechless and the cats have to start looking for a new room to dominate.
The living room of this hipster heaven home feels artsy and inviting, but one step into the kitchen smacks of a gloomy, dated, depressing waste of space. Josh Temple takes the unimpressive room from tragic to transcendent by introducing alluring splashes of color along with huge heaps of cool. It all starts with a kitchen island outfitted with a cookbook shelf and plenty of drawer and cabinet space, an inside-out countertop divided by an accordion-style sit-on-top window, sleek modern barstools, a beefy mixed wood light fixture and extra long plank vinyl flooring in four mesmerizing colors.
What kind of room do you build for a couple who seem to be afraid of color? How about a black kitchen and a tan dining room!

From the first moment Josh Temple first sees Tracey and Nicole's mauve (emphasis on brown) L shaped kitchen, his desire to sledgehammer out a few walls comes to fruition with a beautiful and functional result. The kitchen remodel starts with a pass-thru bar into the living room. To bring function to the heart of the home, the guys move the stainless sink, dishwasher and fridge onto a whole new wall, add sweet white cabinets, natural quartzite countertops flecked with platinum, luxury vinyl floors, a window overlooking the den, and a wall-mounted TV. In this two-fer project, the guys take on the dining room as well, bringing in an octagonal pub table, a juice and coffee bar and lots of custom wine storage.
