Design Star Finale Recap

If you’ve been following along, you know that the final two competitors who walked out on stage for the Design Star Finale were not my favorite. What a difference one episode, a talented producer and great editing can make though. This week? Much better for me. You? Better, the same? Although there was still something about Karl that was a bit awkward (nervous laugh, uncomfortable forced grin,...

Design Star Recap: Nate Berkus Show

Design Star Recap: Nate Berkus Show
Before this episode of Design Star even started I was pretty excited. I am sooo glad that we’re back to completely individual challenges. I like them so much more than the group projects. AND…Who doesn’t love Nate Berkus?!? I was also a little nervous…See, I’d seen some of the promo shots earlier in the week and the discomfort of the previewed moments were down right uncomfortable.

Design Star Magnificent Wedding Recap

Design Star Magnificent Wedding Recap
Sad confession: I think I watch Design Star for the heated disagreements as much as the fabu design. Shhh. Don’t tell. With an episode title like Magnificent Wedding Reception, I KNEW this week was going to be good…Heated design tension, mixed with a little Bridezilla? Freaking awesome, right? The designers were to take a huge open loft space and fill it with the possibility of “intimate... 

Design Star – White Box Challenge

Design Star - White Box Challenge
The “white box challenge” may just be my favorite feature during the Design Star series…I love learning how creative each of the designers is (or isn’t) and it seems to be the episode where I’ve learned enough about each of them to start to like/dislike them. There were two “rooms” that I absolutely loved this go round. They just really stood out. image via...
