ON TOP OF THAT, MOST OF THE ITEMS IN THE MANSION ARE FOR SALE AND DESIGNERS ARE PULLED THE BEST OF THE BEST. ONE THING IS YOU DON’T HAVE A BUDGET.

I WANTED THESE KIDS TO THINK ABOUT WHAT INSPIRES THEM. Reporter: DESIGNERS WILL BE ON LOCATION TO GIVE TIPS TO HELP WITH YOUR DECORATING SPACE. AND THE SHOW IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL MAY 31ST.
