Season 2, Episode 6: “New House for Newlyweds”

Troy and Dina visit a couple who live out in the woods!  Scott and Caitlin recently moved from a much smaller home into a house nearly twice as big, so they need lots of furniture.  But first, they want to get the walls painted, the light fixtures replaced (and relocated), and figure out how to best make use of what they already have.

This episode focuses on the dining room, kitchen, and family room.  And if you like dogs (and who doesn’t?!), then you’ll love the adorable four-month old Airedale Terrier named Urban!

Season 2, Episode 4: “Less is More”

“Decorating Date Night with Troy and Dina” presents a particularly special episode for fans of 106.9 The Eagle!  This show was shot live from the home of Shannon Lovewell (host of the weekday show that airs 10a-3p on WWEG).

Witness the beauty of less is more, as the Lovewell’s primary living space gets simplified and de-cluttered.  A tremendous transformation without spending a single cent!

Decorating Date Night with Troy and Dina… live from the Lovewell’s.

Season 2, Episode 3: “New Friends and a New Kitchen”

Decorating Date Night strikes again!  Season two, episode three looks to redecorate a couple’s entire first floor (including the kitchen).

Color selection and counter tops are up for discussion, of course.  Also up for consideration is a design overhaul, including the addition of a double oven, relocation of the refrigerator, raising of the cabinets, expansion of the island, replacement of the sink, and yes… knocking out some walls.

You get to be a fly on the wall as a married couple thinks out loud about their options and the reasons for the changes they’d like to see.

Season 2, Episode 2: “The Big Reveal”

Popcorn popped!  A bottle of red and a bottle of white opened!  And an exciting “Big Reveal” episode with John and Lynne, who are back again from Season One!

Troy and Dina took to Facebook Live to offer an initial design consultation to these homeowners last year.  (Season 1, Episode 10: “You Floor Me”.)  Now we get to see for the first time together how it all turned out.  And what a transformation it is!

This episode is split into two pieces.  Part 1 provides the set-up, warm welcome, exchange of gifts, and news about an award won by Decorating Date Night.  Sadly, Facebook posted it sideways.  If viewing the video on a mobile device, then turning your screen will likely be no trouble.  If viewing the video on a fixed position screen, please accept our apology.

See you again soon!

Season 2, Episode 1: “Bed & Breakfast, Dogs & Cats”

Season One is now complete!  (Resulting in over $3,000 donated to The Marriage Resource Center!)  The first season of Decorating Date Night began in early 2017 and wrapped up during the holidays at the end of the year.  All 24 videos from the year (16 shows and 8 shorter features) are now posted on this website.  Enjoy!

Now, with the dawning of 2018 comes the dawning of Season Two.  Episode one of this year’s Decorating Date Night with Troy and Dina was broadcast live on Facebook from Elmwood Farms Bed and Breakfast in Williamsport, Maryland.

This video takes you through a fun and informative tour of a farm house that has been restored to capture its pre-Civil War charm while incorporating modern convenience and flair.

Stay tuned for even more information about Season Two.  Episode Two is just around the corner and details will be shared soon.

Season 1, Episode 16: “Chanukah Bush”

What does this household do when Chanukah meets Christmas?  Purchase a pine tree, decorate it with ornaments, and call the decked out tannenbaum a “Chanukah bush”!

This home has never been decorated for the holidays… until this year.  Not owning a single decoration, a run to the store was made.  Not knowing what to do with what was purchased, a call to Decorating Date Night was made.  Not wanting to leave the crew hungry, a bunch of friends were invited over for a gourmet meal.  Yum!

This is when Troy and Dina arrive on the scene to share the excitement on Facebook Live!  Now you can watch the outcome (plus, play along with the Thanksgiving quiz game toward the end of the episode) right here on DecoratingDateNight.com.  Happy Holidays!

Season One, Episode 15: Finishing Up Home Renovation

All is patched up after the walls were knocked out.  New paint colors were chosen.  Cabinets were re-purposed.  Additional decor touches are added.  Rearranged furniture takes place right before your eyes….

There are a few small touch-ups to be done (aren’t there always!), but this project is now done!  How fun!!  See the finished product here.

Season 1, Episode 14: “Knockin’ Out Walls”

This episode has three parts!

Troy and Dina provide a seven-minute preview of a big kitchen/dining room project.  This is followed by an action packed full episode, with hammers wielded, utility knives unsheathed, and screw-drivers spinning!  Definitely not for the faint of heart!  🙂  Then there’s a seven-minute preview of Episode 15 (which will be the completion of the project begun during Episode 14).

Hope you enjoy!

Season 1, Episode 13: “Lucky Thirteen”

This one is short, but sweet!

Troy and Dina look to help a recent college graduate make the most of her new apartment.  The space is small.  The furniture is not.  Finding a workable solution is challenging.  In the end, it all comes together with simple rearrangement of all the furniture that was already in the room.

This is by far the shortest episode of Decorating Date Night ever (as less than 20 minutes).  Enjoy!
