“Mini Reindeer it’s a way to show how you can transform a space in less than a week.” So says Joanna Gaines in StrippedPixel’s exclusive first look at the trailer for her new special.
Mini Reindeera half-hour special premiering Sunday, June 25 at 9/8c Magnolia Network (and available to stream on the day MAX and discovery+), sees Gaines, known for her stunning, large-scale, scale-and-budget renovations, as she and her design team challenge themselves to renovate three rooms in a dated house in need of a refresh – within a week and for under $15,000.
“Every time I look at design, I think of jeans. The wallpaper stopping at that moment kind of accentuated the muffin top,” Gaines says in the trailer. With a smaller scale, “it becomes a little more storytelling, a little more dramatic, and a little extra simple detail,” she explains. Watch the trailer above.
“We’re giving ourselves a week to convert three rooms, so it’s very quick, which doesn’t leave much room for second-guessing. The pace creates a fun design challenge, but the real reward of these small transformations is that often simple additions—things like paint, moldings, and furniture—can really change the look and feel of your home.” Gaines says of the special.
“I’m a firm believer that every home has that special something – and good design isn’t necessarily a matter of starting over, but finding ways to tell more of that unique story. In this project, the homeowner wanted us to incorporate more color and pattern into her space, so this was most important as we created a design plan that also highlighted the existing character of the home,” she adds. “My hope is that people who watch these quick and easy transformations will feel inspired and equipped to get creative in their own homes. Look for something special and see what doors it opens.”
