Host Maureen Ross Neilson provides a crash course in interior design for the "design-clueless." One lucky student has one day with the designers before it's off to work. The students are given $3,000 and a team of renovators, and must redesign a room in their house. The students learn about such design concepts as color, texture and style, as well as design styles that include contemporary, country and classic. At the end of each student's education, he or she is graded on the results of the renovation.
