Discovery-owned home improvement cable network HGTV is prepping a new show with mother/son duo Karrie and Tristan Trowbridge who revitalize properties in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

In the Bend, Oregon-based¬†Mom & Me, designer Karrie and her son and design assistant, Tristan, customize living spaces for families by utilizing unique materials, including locally sourced reclaimed wood, hand-painted tiles, steel shelving and concrete counter tops. Although the mother and son team deliver beautiful results for clients, they don’t always see eye-to-eye. It’s only through collaboration and compromise, with mom having final say, that the duo works through their differences to reinvigorate tired homes.

Produced by Essential Media, the premiere episode sees foster parents task Karrie and Tristan with updating a rural property. The pair build a family-friendly modern kitchen, update the ’70s-era bathroom and add additional bedrooms for the kids.

Series executive producers are Greg Quail, Chris Hilton, Jesse Fawcett, Joel Rizor and Jesse Russell.

Mom & Me premieres on April 6 with back-to-back episodes at 11 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV.
