Flippin' Awesome

When it comes to real estate, Tarek and Christina El Moussa can spot a diamond in the rough. After all, they’ve spent six seasons transforming run-down, dilapidated spaces into dream homes for their HGTV show, Flip or Flop. Now they’re taking their design skills to the next level by partnering with Trend Group on a collection of quartz counters and glass tiles. When this duo isn’t working, they’re all about spending time with daughter Taylor, 6, and son Brayden, 18 months.

Bring a bit of their SoCal cool into your home with the following picks.

Bathroom Flooring

We’re really into wild ceramic floor tiles with star and snowflake motifs. Pair them with a simple subway tile shower surround.

Outlets and Switch Plates

Show your outlets and switch plates some love. Look for a finish that plays up your walls as well as a functional feature—say, a dimmer switch or an outlet with USB ports for charging devices.

Nothing beats a classic trellis pattern. We put one in our powder room and a metallic version in Taylor’s bedroom.

Reclaimed Woods

Reclaimed woods are key to our rustic glam look. Floors can be pricey—instead wrap a kitchen island in planks or use boards for a feature wall.

Wall Paint

Sherwin-Williams Dovetail (SW 7018) is hands down our favorite accent shade. It’s a rich neutral that complements almost all furniture.

You can’t go wrong with succulents. They’ll thrive just about anywhere.
