    The prettiest wall treatment is Lula’s blue skies and round window, but her room’s also filled with impractical ideas. I thought that she was an interior designer, as opposed to an interior decorator. The difference being, of course, that interior designers have a more complete knowledge of construction and therefore, should be able to design rooms where all elements follow the laws of physics. That bed hanging from the ceiling from those two thin chains positioned near the head of the bed doesn’t work. There does exist a hovering bed but how expensive it is I don’t know and exactly how it works I couldn’t explain. I’m sure the price is one that Bezos and Musk can afford to pay without blinking but for the rest of us? Also, the fluffy soft white shearling carpet looks as if she’s got it wall-to-wall. It doesn’t look like something that can be cleaned easily. It looks like it would be better on the bed.
     Laura’s room is, I’m sorry to say, rather generic. It looks like everyman’s pulled from a catalog (IKEA comes to mind here) from a mid-range furniture store. Uninspired. Also, Beams on the ceiling
    right over the bed is very bad Feng Shui. It’s like knives over your head.
    In Alvin’s room, the seating at the foot of the bed seems too deep to sit in comfortably without back cushions, unless you’re a basketball player. Also, hard to get cozy in an armless chair. All cushions would fall to the floor. You might as well do away with that seating altogether and watch tv from the bed itself.

    Lula, dear, you can’t drill windows whenever you feel like it. Not every structure allows it. And does one sleep in a swinging bed, normally we move when sleeping

  3. I on January 22, 2023 at 4:37 am

    Laura: I don’t tend to use recess lights in a bedroom, you’re not performing surgery, so we like to use layers of light so that everybody looks beautiful.
    Everyone: How do I find me a designer like Laura?

  4. ACE LORDEJOE TAYAG on January 22, 2023 at 4:39 am

    Laura : Practical, Achievable and probably feels like home
    Alvin : Very Expensive Room, so unique
    Lula : That bed is Ridiculous HAHAHAHA Probably this concept will be so expensive and so unpractical.

  5. David Uboh on January 22, 2023 at 4:39 am

    Laura’s design🫂

  6. Interesting Facts on January 22, 2023 at 4:40 am

    Laura’s design is coomon, but practical.
    I love lula’s bedroom more. And her bed design is outstanding.

  7. Мария Райкевич on January 22, 2023 at 4:42 am

    Imagine having an intimate moment with someone on that floating bed

  8. Vivan Alice Good on January 22, 2023 at 4:43 am


  9. Lily Omar on January 22, 2023 at 4:43 am

    I love the positivity in this video ❤

  10. MISHYNA on January 22, 2023 at 4:44 am

    Alvin’s design is so cozy!

  11. Max Muss on January 22, 2023 at 4:45 am

    I always find Laura’s choices so “safe” compared to some of the more “innovative”choices of the others, but by the end I’m always in love with her spaces and want to actually live there whereas I find the others beautiful and very smart, they ultimately feel a little less livably. Such a rollercoaster of emotions with these haha

  12. Stephanie Bell on January 22, 2023 at 4:45 am

    Laura and Alvin’s rooms were my favorite and the most practical. If Laura’s Room was mixed with the warmth of Alvin’s it would be prefect. Lula’s design was pretty, but very impractical. A floating bed is a cool idea but could definitely go wrong in soo many ways… like if you jumped into bed 😂 you could end up going through the wall, or it getting pulled out of the ceiling. I did love the constellation idea though, just with a recessed ceiling.

  13. Michael Zewdu on January 22, 2023 at 4:45 am

    8:40 two chainz is so gangsta

  14. Fabiola León on January 22, 2023 at 4:46 am

    I would never hire Lula. WTHeck was that?!! Laura´s design was inviting, simple, cozy, just nice.

  15. shifa on January 22, 2023 at 4:47 am

    love lulas style!!! it’s so refreshing and unique. i think a lot of ppl are missing the whole point of the vid where they specifically say that there are no limitations. also hanging beds are a thing ppl. in fact they’ve been a thing in india for a very long time and it works just fine.

  16. Hilda Wainoi on January 22, 2023 at 4:48 am

    I love all 3 but Laura’s just feels like me.. it’s simple enough, warm and inviting.

  17. D S on January 22, 2023 at 4:48 am

    Sleeping in Lula’s bed, with every turn I make the bed will swing inducing my migraines. Has stability gone out of fashion?

    Laura and Alwin, both are winners for me. I love Laura’s balcony and Alvin’s warmth. I don’t think I would ever leave Alvin’s room.

  18. Kawosza on January 22, 2023 at 4:48 am

    Prrsonally it made me angry one of the designers showed off different animal fur like they are toys.. 😓

  19. Milos Lukesevic on January 22, 2023 at 4:53 am

    Laura’s ideas are down to earth and lovely, which most people would like.. But it misses some spicy details for me 🙂
    Alvin’s swing sofa next to a big window is a great idea, and the overall atmosphere of the room is warm and inviting..
    Much better than what he tried to achieve in the video of the office transformation where he turned that small office into " a small outdated hotel room"..
    Lula’s ideas are always fresh and unpredictable 😁 I like her the most because of that..
    BUT with this one, she started great and enjoyable and then messed everything up at the end 😂
    Round large window, and rows of long oval windows on both sides of the wall are cool ideas and really interesting approaches.. Love it..
    But then she again, like in other videos, made everything else out of proportion, especially the round seating area around the hanging firepit.. Its just too small.. The idea is awesome but, not possible in that kind of room, or at that exact place.. If she moved that round sunked seating area in the middle, and in front of the round window but pushed a back a little into the room, it could have good proportion and would look amazing..
    Hanging bad is also an interesting idea, but the style, proportion or placement of it is off.. something is odd.. Especially in combination with a round seating area it just doesn’t look good together.. Both of them are maybe just too much..

    Still, I enjoyed the most Lula’s creativity 🙂

  20. knightinbattle on January 22, 2023 at 4:53 am

    Lula went crazy on this one 🤧 they were all fye but alvin sold wit the lights it looked like a fancy hotel room

  21. Ben van Broekhuijsen on January 22, 2023 at 4:53 am

    Lula must be a witch. She magically creates windows in a wall as if the room only has outside walls. Then she magically creates a hole in the floor to create seating space and puts a fireplace with carpet that looks like it is highly flamable. Then she magically floats a bed in the room with two wires to the ceiling. Also very practical if you need to move the bed for some reason. Oh and I forgot, if you have wonderful big windows, let’s close them mostly off and create practical round windows that are horrible to clean.

    Oh and if the marble comes from Brazil, I am quite confident it is not called Azul Cielo because Cielo is an Italian word, not Portuguese.

    Oh and the room was carpeted which was very big 20 years ago, so let’s put another carpet there that is hell to clean.

    The title should be: Two designers and a magical witch transform the same bedroom.

  22. Kriszta Bucsi on January 22, 2023 at 4:53 am

    Laura this time

  23. Eric O on January 22, 2023 at 4:54 am

    It would be interesting to see what Laura could add to Lula’s design to add practicality or use better the empty space. The ambience that room has is incredible.

  24. Sonal Divekar on January 22, 2023 at 4:54 am

    This feels like California or a warm tropical beachy place so a fire pit looks outlandish . I find Laura’s designs really very achievable and livable .. and classical love her style Alvin is a bachelor pad designer ..very masculine

  25. Google Is Skynet on January 22, 2023 at 4:54 am

    The hanging bed doesn’t obey physics at all. Only 2 chains on ONE side??

  26. Thomas Doyle on January 22, 2023 at 5:03 am

    Ugh. Get depressed when I go into my bedroom. Or anywhere else in house. Clutter. Glad I’m going out later!

  27. valvacious on January 22, 2023 at 5:03 am

    I like Alvin’s the best! Then Lula’ next.

  28. Museo Betty Whatley on January 22, 2023 at 5:04 am

    Lula should be an animator for Barbie movies. Her room is so dreamy! But super unrealistic for the real world. I like the warmness of Alvin’s but the functionality of Laura’s. I’d love a mix of those two

  29. Neil Sant on January 22, 2023 at 5:04 am

    Lula’ s vision is like a student. She needs some vision of reality (basic physics, duability) even if challenge has no limitation in terms of budget & imaginary client’s preferences so it further needs development. I feel like the arch looks strange/out of proportion. However, her selections of materials and finishes are so chic.

    Alvin’s was like, u really hired a designer with real arty pieces in market. He has a vibe of kelly wearstler.

    Laura is approach is super practical and easily doable even by layman from actual homedepot. She just missed the opportunity to showcase a level up version & push some boundaries given that function and practicality is a default in her process.also she missed a opportunity to be featured by architectural digest. I mean its one of a lifetime.

  30. The BIG Girl Life on January 22, 2023 at 5:05 am

    In each episode, I find myself drawn to Laura’s practical yet comforting designs. If I had my own home, and the money to hire a designer, it would be Laura FTW.

  31. Thomas Doyle on January 22, 2023 at 5:07 am

    That window is stunning. But what if you wanted to take a nap.

  32. Pinch of salt on January 22, 2023 at 5:08 am

    A beautiful view should never be covered up! Laura always understands the assignment 👌🏼

  33. Altynai Star on January 22, 2023 at 5:09 am

    I love this)

  34. Tiara F. Yosephine on January 22, 2023 at 5:10 am

    I would like to see their house for real

  35. Adrian Mendoza on January 22, 2023 at 5:10 am

    Alvin’s is my favorite.

  36. hilary on January 22, 2023 at 5:10 am

    I like Laura’s the best, but where is the storage for clothes? Laura is the only one to include storage but it is insufficient. The other two have none at all!

  37. Animatedbysamaha on January 22, 2023 at 5:10 am

    Lula design is too dreamy, not practical and a magazine cover like

  38. Inej Klaus on January 22, 2023 at 5:11 am

    I love Alvin’s it’s so warm

  39. DrummerlovesBookworm on January 22, 2023 at 5:11 am

    Not one of them addresses practicality of cleaning, livability. and maintaining the bedroom or feng shui. Or couples actually living in it. I don’t like any of them, but I HAVE come to the conclusion that LuLu is either cuckoo or serves as the anti-decorator for the series. The Simon Cowell or the irritating talking head on the news panel. She’s meant to yank your chain. No pun here intended.

  40. Katie Jo on January 22, 2023 at 5:12 am


  41. Leisongi Vangomo on January 22, 2023 at 5:13 am

    Laura and Alvin’s are livable and affordable. However I would lose the plants, the bulky sofa and the hammock.

  42. Robin Bohn on January 22, 2023 at 5:16 am

    Laura is amazing! loved her office design as well

  43. Angel Jojo on January 22, 2023 at 5:17 am

    Again Love you guys!
    For the room, my first choice will be Laura’s
    How smart!
    I loved how u practically used the space!
    I mean the bed facing the window with that chair and table underneath then what you did wiz z balcony,
    My second choice is Alvin,
    how comfortable is that bed!
    Plus I loved the arched walls around the balcony wow!
    Loved what you did wiz z ceiling!
    My third is Lula’s,
    a fairy tale room indeed!
    Girls will jump for it, as I guess teenagers. Especially Arabs ,who would love to hang down there ,in the space you cleverly managed, with their ARGUILE!
    Beautiful work, I must say!

  44. Maria Roque on January 22, 2023 at 5:20 am

    Lula’s design … feels dilusional to me. That’s not even a bedroom, maybe a place to take a nap, yes, but not a bedroom. Bedrooms need storage and practicality. Also privacy/light blocking. That bed is never going to be large enough to sleep comfortably, unless people is 4′ tall and also don’t wake up in the middle of the night. Imagine waking up, half asleep, to a moving bed. Not to mention, how expensive her design must be, with a round hanging bed and arched/circular windows cut in the walls. Not practical, not livable, too costly, no investment return.

  45. Garagedad - TOPIC ♪ on January 22, 2023 at 5:21 am

    i love how lulu just says "f reality" its much needed in the mind of design which can quickly become so creatively confined.

  46. Suzanne Pharr on January 22, 2023 at 5:25 am

    Laura is the only one of the 3 that I would actually hire if I was looking for a designer. I also like that even though she could literally do anything with the space, she chose to focus on sustainability.

  47. Effing Cool on January 22, 2023 at 5:25 am

    Alvin and Laura’s designs are very down to earth, currently in trend but also timeless designs. But as an Architect i am jealous of people like Lula. I also tend to only make things that are bit classic, functional or too economical. I am unable to design outside of box.

  48. Larry Shell on January 22, 2023 at 5:25 am

    Laura’s design all the way.

  49. Katie Jo on January 22, 2023 at 5:28 am

    I do not want to look at a desk when in my bed.

  50. HarmonyLove on January 22, 2023 at 5:29 am

    I like the simple version because it’s more realistic, it’s livable for day-to-day functionality, and affordable. Summed up to: Down to earth. Minimalist organic feel. The man’s version is for the rich which is not me and the sky version is for vacation but not realistically is not comfortable for everyday life for me. So I prefer the simple yet exquisite version. Her whole process made me feel at ease, comfortable, and satisfied. Each choice made logical sense. Her take was positive and her steps were minimal. The sky version lady described the small window as sad but the simple version lady described it in a positive view…draw the light out and balanced it with art for a beautiful complete wall design. Her take felt effortless but she truly transformed that room with a process that allowed to work with what was already there instead of completely stripping everything away. I would trust her to remodel my home.
