Let the smack talk begin! Host Thom Filicia kicks things off on the East Coast with guest designer Sam Allen. They’re inside a super chic home in Westport, Connecticut, that boasts a touch of Old Hollywood glamour with a youthful feel.

This West Coast masterpiece features a jaw-dropping pool house, master bath spa, and a closet that is the stuff dreams are made of. Watch now and decide which is the coast with the most!
