There’s no time like the present to catch up on all the past seasons of Queer Eye (and watch the premiere of Queer Eye Germany). And while we eagerly await the return of Bobby and the Fab Five, we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite makeovers – and showing you how to incorporate Bobby’s best design ideas into your own home. So for today, we’re headed back to the city of brotherly love to bring you a traditional meets casual makeover – and the best DIY tips from Kevin’s makeover from Season 5.
For Kevin’s makeover, Bobby focused on more traditional furnishings, while maintaining a casual feel that wasn’t too formal. And of course, there were plenty of smart solutions to maximize space, add interest and turn this house into a home. So keep scrolling to learn the 4 design tips you can take away from this makeover.

Just a quick note to share how much I love your work, Bobby!! Binging Queer Eye (ok…more than once) helped me through the pandemic. I am an amateur design buff and every episode brought such joy to me and to the makeover recipients. Oh how the world needs your joy! It is so important how you 5 share your personal journeys so others who struggle can see the path to overcome…the path is LOVE! Sending you and the Fab 5 lots and lots of it 🙂
Thanks for your sweet comment! So happy to read that our show helped you during the pandemic. Sending you so much love from all of us. xx -B
