I have to confess that I enjoy watching it to get ideas for the house. Some of the new shows are not my favorites. That Emily that won the Design Star last year and has "Secrets of a Stylist" is the worst. I couldn't believe last night when she put this awful sort of pink/red wallpaper that looked like her version of something from the Jetsons all over the walls and on the celing. She installed a white chair rail and painted the lower part red. If she had done it to our house, SR said he would have said right on the show that it was awful. She's done some weird stuff, but this was the worst.
The Donna Designs Dallas (or something like that) is also annoying. Her stuff is way too glitzy, lots of "bling". I guess it's just not my taste, but it's so overdone.
Then there's Party with Dina or something like that, one of the Housewives of New Jersey, who looks like her lips have been blown up way too many times by a plastic surgeon and looks like she's had more than her share of Botox. Her stuff is way overblown, too.
What I like is that Chicago condo that Vern Yip designed that they're giving away on one of their contests. It's sleek and in quiet good taste.
What are your favorites and not so favorites? Does anyone like Antonio, the guy with all the tats and the cute dog? Personally, I wouldn't let him do a room in our house.
