Home Remodeling | 2017 Project Updates | Robeson Design



hi welcome back to ropes and designs I'm Rebecca Robeson and I am so glad you're here because today is project update day inner balance did I use modality before we get too far so you take a moment to subscribe that way you will always know when we upload a new video and by the way we are very close to hitting that goal mark of 500,000 subscribers so help me make that goal this is seriously the year of the backyard and I'm excited because our goal with samples of these projects done early summer and that's coming the lack of locomotive when this project we decided to move the existing wall in the family room to create the best indoor outdoor living space possible we took up all the 15 doors the windows the fireplace we left the fan might get a little drafty for a while but it's going to be so amazing you guys let's just hope it doesn't rain in the meantime and if you've been watching San Diego weather that could happen back at the lab Rachel and I are working on all of the selections and we'll have those ready to show you very soon one of the things we're certainly going to need our rugs ok Adi sometimes I use art as sort of a color palette directions and sometimes I use area rugs and this time we're going to go see Adi in La Jolla at Asha rugs and get our rug bingo ouch Oh oh I got a hit you magician this is Arzo Russ are you guys Tony sometimes you bring your clients with you these guys are amazing our users oh no wonder you can't fly off my head I am so sorry once we land on a few contenders we start bringing in the actual depth and saturation of the colors we selected yeah because they're on their last legs [Applause] our clients are really fun people and it was really kind of fun for them to get a feel and an idea of what if you had to come hey Todd how's it gone good so here's we're going to do so that you know which house is which we're going to call this the Delmar house okay the second house we're going to call the Rancho Santa Fe house we've got all our lights in we're waiting on a crown molding and by the way I have two pictures to show you today I think that's just so awful it's latticework is gram a class and then we'll do a tall paint up piece of art there two lamps let's go see what the progress is in here yeah we need um home we need them bad we need them in the worst way this looks so much better since we put in bigger windows right because this used to drop quite a ways I mean look at that view we're going to land in the same spot yeah I thought Jason had it right when he said the bottom stair on the staircase looks like Mickey Mouse ears I mean it really kind of does I could literally draw this on the cardboard floor for you and be done oh look at that temple Julie right now okay easy peasy yeah you're sick so a virtual hug good to see you and while the client and contractor are kind of taking care of some business why don't I take you around and show you more rooms down a brand new look at this 100 inch screen so this is going to be for where you can be watching television and then there's going to be right here to shade lounges and little drink tables and could be amazing let me show you the master bedroom wing we come into the bathroom and you might notice that we have changed the baseboards throughout this entire house at least answer baseboards eight inches that's the best way to go now we just added all this gorgeous tile this is Carrera marble all done in a mosaic pattern pretty cool they used to be white built-ins that were already like custom made which is very very outdated so we completely redid this closet floor-to-ceiling not just you know six or seven feet high these now go to nine feet and it's all absolutely like the most space-saving efficient ways to do your clothes incredible window treatments all around there's two fun windows on either side we have all brand-new furniture comes with stuff like every single thing in this house furniture wise is going to be brand new spectacular view it's like having a park for your backyard look at this I do not want I want my window treatments to hit the wall I don't want to kick in Elkin the wall basically the client wants to have all of the roller shades in his bedroom controlled by Alexa Alexa turn on good morning so you like to sleep in Journal the problem is in order to have the motors installed on the wall we'd have to push out like too far I'm sure the resistance for the next 10 years that I saw every day you're going to be mad at me I think we're going to have to find a solution but we're going to have to really get creative you don't want any reveal down there you want to be it's that you know what there could be a sight reveal quarter inch that would probably look better cleaner I mean I if it's flush then you deal with is going to be bad good call Larry chef Frank I was getting there Douglas next and then I would have gotten to pray these are going to be some of my best projects to date and I'm really happy that we're going to be able to share them with you through your life wall yeah yeah all right boys bye Frank got your name now got it the video we put up what three weeks ago on the 10 home hacks that I did in my own house Stephanie has got 300,000 views I don't know what the secret sauce is if you know leave me a comment below and tell me because that video is being watched by a lot of people and one of the things I do think that they like about it is I take you through my own home and I show you if like relate what a disaster it was in the beginning and where I brought it today well guess what this next design session I'm going to be taking you through the disastrous covers and cabinets in my home in my home it's very personal kind of gross but I'm just saying the design sections on spring cleaning is going to be amazing so if you like to ten home hats you're going to love this design session click on this link right here where it says design section and it'll take you right to my website crazy easy peasy I'll see you guys there love you

    Rebecca, I was just thinking, why dont you turn on your subtitle so that people can add subtitle for their language.. I was thinking like in my country, the awareness for interior design is really low, not like in USA, and I think that would be a great way to increase awareness and interest on interior design, and I think that many countries are facing this problem too, what do you think? btw, I will be more than willing to voluntarily translate all of your videos :p lol SF

    Do your clients usually give you carte blanche when it comes to budget? A complete reno like this one which includes all the furniture new or customized…..around what would a project like this cost please?

    I think ppl like that other video u r referring because you have really 'before' when room was still being used – not just the empty before room, and after, plus the fixes are relatively inexpensive generally…like the dining room kitchen etc.

    I totally agree with HereDianna.  There aren't enough YouTube designers out there.  Designing a home can be completely overwhelming.  Having someone with expertise give you pointers and show you how they think can really make a difference!

    Is the only sitting in the screen room just two chaises? I guess it's in the bedroom area.

    Rebecca, I remember watching your channel and being in love with everything that you did. Sadly, life got in the way and I didn't have time to enjoy your videos. Years later I'm back watching your videos and the content is still amazing. I just want to thank you for the effort and quality of your work! You also look amazing. Like, you're aging in reverse! Keep up the good work. Also, the "secret sauce" is hacks. EVERYONE loves life hacks!

    It's the words "home hacks" in the title. That's the secret sauce. Just like how, "How To Make A Bed" has over 400,000 views. It's the "How To" in the title that pulled them in. YouTube is the 2nd largest SE, so key words matter. Words people would search for matter.

    The retention is ALL YOU though!!

    P.S. I wonder what would happen if you changed the title of the garage sale video to include "How To" in it, how it would do? Would it increase views?? Hmmm.

    Hi Rebecca!!!  This video was so GREAT!  I love seeing the action and the process.  I think most people have NO CLUE  how much WORK goes into picking out all the pieces of the puzzle, and putting it together!!  This is your true genius!!!  Your ability to visualize what can be, from what it is now is just phenomenal!!  *****My take on way your 10 home hacks has over 350,000 views-it's very relatable to people of all skill levels.  It shows people who are just starting out what can be done with creativity, elbow grease, and "smoke and mirrors."  What you did in your dining room is one of the best examples-cutting off the chests legs, adding a mirror, with a window treatment,  to add symmetry on the other side of the fireplace….these are GREAT, CREATIVE and LOW COST solutions.  I think this truly could be the key to major millions of subscribers!!!!  As you learned from your mom, work with what you have and rearrange!  Your garage sale scavenging has been awesome!!  People need to understand a small crack in a vase isn't a deal breaker-turn the sucker around! 🙂  Then as people get more money, they can advance in stages as you have in your home.  People adore you!!  You're also very RELATABLE!!!  You're not afraid to show your "before" pics, and people truly admire your honesty about that.  You have humility and wonderful humor!  All these qualities are a HUGE draw to you!!  Do ya get it NOW???????  Love ya!!  Barb XXOOO
