Oh boy. I called the outcome of tonight’s episode as soon as the tiny house challenge was revealed. I felt like the challenge to design a small 100 square foot home was almost built for Meg…
With her “Vintage Palm Beach” aesthetic, Meg excels at the kitschy, campy cool style perfect for something like an itty bitty novelty house (Really, who lives in these houses? They look like kiddie clubhouses). I just wish Meg’s style was a little bit more Lilly Pulitzer prep and a little less pink flamingo annoying.
I enjoyed the green framed windows and the fabric on the back bench. I wish the bench would have been positioned a touch higher off the ground so that storage baskets could have been incorporated underneath.
Karl. You know he has goofy in him. I hated the color he used in his space. It was awful.
I am so very sad to see Mark go. Though I don’t appreciate his design style, I do appreciate his styling. His attention to detail really makes it all come together.
I thought his kitchen looked fantastic. I loved the little herb garden and did you notice the colorful food storage and mini clock on the right over the sink area? I also liked the layers and texture he implemented in the space.
I agreed with the judges – Mark’s “artwork” and the paint did nothing for the space (and, did anyone else notice the remaining pencil lines on the walls?). I wish he would have painted the walls a nice soft neutral, rather than leave the pine. It was so cabin-like.
Where do people that live in tiny houses shower? After checking out the Tiny House Blog very quickly, I still don’t know. I do however know that you can buy plans for a tiny house of your own for less than $50.
Why were all of the participants wearing those ridiculous rain boots? The looked absolutely silly.
Why wasn’t there more of an emphasis placed on drawing the eye upward with architecture or lighting? What about mirrors to open the space up? Seemed a little odd.
