Last night, I tuned in to watch Bravo's new Flipping Out spinoff series, Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis. The new show documents the emotional pitfalls and design triumphs as Jeff, Jenni, and Zoila move in with clients for five days to assess and redesign their homes.
While Flipping Out honed in on the amusingly dysfunctional interactions of Jeff and his staff, the source of the new show's drama seems to stem from clients fretting over furniture decisions and remodel mishaps. Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis's focus is decidedly more design-oriented as well, which might alienate a certain audience while intriguing another. Viewers get to watch Jeff lead clients through design decisions, pick up styling tricks and renovation strategies, and finally marvel at the big reveal at the end. While practical jokes, dry humor, and flip outs still occur, it's clear that there is a new focus.
