Teen mom Chelsea Houska & Cole DeBoer brag about their ‘good’ style as they defend Down Home Fab’s designs against critics
TEEN Mom alum Chelsea Houska and her husband Cole DeBoer are bragging about their styling choices on their new reality series amid backlash.
In a recent episode of Down Home Fab, Chelsea, 31, and her other half Cole, 34, defended their “good” style after critics slammed the way the couple styled interiors.
In the latest episode of the HGTV show, the former MTV stars set up a home for their new clients, Sara and Matt.
The couple gave the TV personalities free rein when it came to remodeling their home.
Chelsea and Cole made Sara and Matt’s house very modern and set it up like a “nice hotel”.
During the show, Chelsea expressed her appreciation for her customers’ trust and open-mindedness throughout the renovation process.
“This project was so much fun and I feel like we were able to get so creative,” Chelsea told the couple.
“It felt good that you trusted us so much.”
Cole added that they “wanted to create a cool, fun space.”
Complimenting Chelsea and Cole, Sara replied: “Nailed it,” with a laugh.

She added: “You [two] did great, we knew from the start…we were so excited that you were too…that’s why we gave you full range, free range.”
“…We knew you would take care of what is important to us.”
Matt shared that he and his wife were “blown away,” which Sara co-signed.
During the confessional, Chelsea noted that it was a “confidence boost” when clients gave them full creative control.
“It’s definitely a confidence boost when a client tells you to do whatever you want and you just trust your gut and go with it, and they love it. It feels so good,” Chelsea revealed.
Cole agreed, admitting that he thought they would be “pretty good” at home design.
NOT THAT NICE
Since Down Home Fab premiered on January 16, the show has drawn harsh criticism from fans.
In the premiere episode, the partners used their decorating know-how to remodel several rooms in the nearby home of another Sioux Falls couple, Jessica and Nate.
On a budget of $100,000, they transformed their client’s kitchen, dining room, living room, sitting area and foyer, giving it a similar flair to Chelsea and Cole’s farmhouse in South Dakota.
Some design choices included butcher block countertops for the kitchen, black finish on the original cream cabinets, and copper foil for the kitchen island.
Although customers seemed delighted with the makeover, viewers on social media weren’t as impressed.
One said: “It was really embarrassing how badly this went, they have 0 sense of style, the house looked awful when they were done with it.”
A second agreed: “It looks awful! Also, Chels kept saying the room was too dark, then proceeded to put dark floors and paint the walls AND ceiling dark green.”
A third wrote: “The whole design seemed coherent except for that awful fireplace. Maybe it was different in person, but it seemed like a huge whitish smudge amidst earth tones and blacks. Just awful. left the ceiling unpainted.”
Others thought the designs were “disgusting” and brusquely called the entire project “a huge waste of money”.
