Network 10 is promising viewers that homeowners will be put through jaw dropping design boot camp thanks to the four designers joining Changing Rooms when it premieres on Wednesday, 13 February at 7.30pm.
The series is being made for Network 10 by Endemol Shine Australia.
Tim Leveson, Jane Thomson, Naomi Findlay and Chris Carroll are the lucky designers tasked with ensuring that colour, bold prints, texture and statement pieces are well and truly incorporated into these changing rooms.
Meet the new team members via these Network 10 bios. The designers will be featured on the show when it launches with two episodes each week:
Having grown up in the wonderful world of interiors, interior designer Tim likes to live on the edge and take risks with his designs. He enjoys creating a vibrant look and experimenting with pops of colour, lots of greenery and spaces that speak to the soul. Tim likes to challenge his client’s views and introduce them to styles they have never considered or felt too intimidated to undertake themselves.
With over 28 years of experience, interior designer and stylist Jane has an individual approach with a pinch of eclectic. Her design and decoration ethos is simple; collaborate and connect. Jane’s style favours bold statement pieces with selective use of colour and her aim is to leave a space feeling elegant and luxe.
Designer Naomi is a “rapid renovation” expert and describes her style as earthy and totally liveable. While she takes a very considered approach to design, she enjoys being creative and transforming spaces that allow others to thrive and grow – to hone in on the sentimentality of the family and lifestyle.
Interior designer and stylist Chris believes in attainable design. He prides himself on being the “anti-designer, designer” and extolls “skimp meets splurge” – incorporating a few pricey investment pieces combined with affordable luxe pieces that won’t hurt your hip pocket. He has always been obsessed with design and tries to push clients out of their comfort zone.
Each Changing Rooms home transformation will be screened over two big nights with two designers go head to head as they race to finish three rooms in five days.
With a budget of $20,000 they will be hoping to change these family’s lives forever with colour, style and good design.
Changing Rooms premieres on Wednesday, 13 February at 7.30pm on 10 and WIN Network.
