Jeff Lewis Design

{Jeff & Co.'s Current Residence: Valley Oak 2}

After last night's Season Three opener of Flipping Out, we learned a few things. Jeff Lewis lost one third of his net worth in the real estate market crash in California this past year, he is still as high strung as ever and we love him for it, Zoila is still as cute as can be, and Jeff has ventured into interior design and remodeling for now.

After hearing Jeff mention Jeff Lewis Design on the Today Show yesterday, I immediately searched Google and found that he finally has a website! Some of Jeff's famous projects that we've enjoyed watching on the show are featured in his portfolio. Jeff's style is very modern, streamlined, and masculine. He likes clean lines, modern kitchens, and strong colors. While I am happy that he has found an alternative to flipping houses in the current market, I am a bit saddened because I have a feeling that this means we'll be seeing less of uber-talented, Ryan Brown on the show.

I love the kitchen in Valley Oak 1! It is probably my favorite Jeff Lewis Kitchen. The colors, glass subway tile backsplash, see-through fridge, and Thomas O'Brien Reed Chandeliers are fabulous!
Jeff's design aesthetic really excels in his kitchens and baths.

I really like the fact that Jeff Lewis accentuates the period details in the homes he remodels as opposed to getting rid of them like so many speculators do.

I think everyone must remember the beautiful Nottingham house from Season 1 of Flipping Out. This home appears in both Jeff's and Ryan's portfolios, so I am assuming that it was a collaboration, though Ryan's warmer, layered aesthetic is very evident here.

I never thought he would be gone for too long. He just has the TV personality, and if any show would make a come back, it's his.

At times like these, I realize I've been out of the USA too long (10 years)!!! I'm so out of it!!!

I hadn't heard of Flipping Out, Jeff Lewis and the kitchen titled "The Small, but Very Stylish Kitchen at Ben Lomond" looked positively HUGE by European standards!!!

Your designer de jour indeed does gorgeous kitchen and baths! Thanks for keeping me current!

I really enjoyed the season premiere last night -- Jeff's predicament seems so relevant right now and I love that he's riding things out, too.

Agreed though that I'll miss Ryan being around. While I think Jeff is really talented (and your so right that his biggest forte are kitchens/baths), I really do prefer Ryan's style. The Nottingham house is my all-time favorite from the show.
