Remember how I told you that you really need to watch the reality show Flipping Out? Did anyone take my advice and catch the episode last night?
Ryan Brown is Jeff Lewis’s calm and level-headed business partner on the show. He does a lot of the design work for the houses we see (they collaborate on some projects and work separately on others). I think Ryan makes the show watchable because you need that voice of reason when Jeff is losing it. (Although I have to say Jeff has mellowed out a bit this season, don’t you think? There’s not nearly as much yelling.)
Today I got an e-mail from Christiane, a member of Ryan Brown’s design team. Christiane told me about the new Brown Design Blog, where they’ve been posting photos of some of their projects, so of course I immediately checked it out.
Ryan runs Brown Design Inc. with his brother Joshua. I wish they’d do a spin-off series with them. This is one of their rooms that I liked. It makes me want to paint a ceiling green somewhere in my own house! Very soothing.
Here’s another room that jumped out at me:
I thought it was interesting how they ran the striped wallpaper sideways. And I love the yellow door.
Check out Brown Design Blog to see more examples of Ryan’s work that we haven’t seen on the show. You can read Christiane’s thoughts on what it’s like to work for Ryan on the Bravo TV website here (sounds like he really is as nice in real life as he seems on TV!).
Update: You can read about the 3rd season of “Flipping Out” and see photos of Ryan Brown’s home in the Hollywood Hills here.
