"Home Takeover with Simon & Tomas" (OWN) is a home makeover series focused on transforming decor-challenged homes into stylish abodes. The high-energy design show features Scandinavia's most celebrated pair of interior designers, Simon Davies and Tomas Cederlund.

After tackling hundreds of "home takeovers" throughout Sweden and the world, lauded interior designers Simon and Tomas are embarking on their first design rescue journey across the United States. Armed with their distinctive Swedish style and razor-sharp wit, the high-energy team is on a mission to help American homeowners redecorate and redesign their unstylish rooms.

In each episode, out-of-date or often over-adorned homes are nominated by neighbors and loved ones who want to give the homeowners a gift of style. Staging a complete home takeover, the "Lords of Fabulousness" kick out the homeowners and move in. Simon and Tomas make the house their home—sleeping in the owners' bed, eating their food, and playing their board games—as they get to work completely transforming the home's offending rooms with the help of a team of contractors and a new design plan.

In the end, it is a challenging yet hilarious endeavor as the design duo beg and bicker with reluctant homeowners, intolerant builders and of course, each other—all while facing a ticking clock in their noble quest to make America's living spaces more beautiful.

"Home Takeover with Simon & Tomas" is produced for OWN by Angel City Factory. The executive producers are Chris Cowan, Ray Giuliani and Jean-Michel Michenaud.
