Am I a design snob? I think the answer is no, but why am I finding this season of Design Star so utterly uninspired and dull? "This week the designers were divided into two teams, and each was asked to design New York apartments. Their inspiration: garments from noted fashion designers. The women's team of Casey, Emily, Nina, Stacey and Tera didn't communicate well during the design process, bickered during judging and lost the challenge. Nina and Tera were judged the worst designers of the week, and Tera was eliminated. Vern advised the remaining women: "There is no room for mediocrity in this competition.'" (HGTV)
Oh! And Nina! Someone give her a lesson on social and professional interaction! She's so holier than thou and down right rude that I was praying with both hands she would get kicked off last night for shear snobbery! I was happy to have her in the bottom two after having the MOST beautiful dress as her inspiration...seriously, it was amazing...but alas, mean people stay and succeed and gentle people go. The way of the world as we know it.
The outfit on the left inspired most of this space. I use the word "inspired" here very lightly. And did anyone else think the velvet drapes...which looked peacock on camera...were an obvious miss? I do like the grey and lord knows I love a good sunburst mirror but even I have had this same mirror for going on 5 years...was there nothing more current...more out of the box?
Did anyone else watch last night? Now come on...I had over 400 hits on this darn blog yesterday so start chatting with me! Leave a comment or two...that's what we're all here for. ;)
