There's a new man in Colette's life, and her husband, Lee, doesn't mind a bit. He's too busy washing dishes in the bathtub, and Colette, her dream kitchen a gutted shell and her living area practically empty, is reduced to scrambling eggs on a hot plate in the basement. Their 1970s Birmingham, Alabama, two-story brick house is devoid of basic conveniences—the result of a runaway renovation that hit some major speed bumps. To the rescue: super-designer Nate Berkus, who gave them the home they'd always wanted!
