Okay… so staying up until midnight to watch “Design Star” I dozed off for just a few minutes and I woke up to see Michael and Casey painting the floor of their room. Oh crap!! Don’t do that. Mini heart attack and flash backs of Tashica and my floor painting fiasco last season!
The designers this week are tasked to design rooms for very deserving clients… FDNY firefighters. American heroes.
Casey, Michael, Emily, and Alex won the challenge with this room:
There were some cool graphic elements in this room. From Casey’s fireman silouette, to Alex’s mural, to Emily’s coffee table… this room really deserved to win.
But being honest… it was a much easier space to design. The floor turned out (Phew! Major relief), but man down when Michael shot a nail into his thumb. Ouch!!!
Way to go Alex for stepping up not only on your wall mural, but finishing Michael’s project!
Now for the losing teams space… it’s a toughy… and the judges (in their true fashion) let them have it! Vern almost seemed to be shaking and spitting venom as he told them how unbelievably angry he was!
I really don’t have too much to say about this space. Let’s just say I’ve seen better… but here’s just a few points.
My biggest complaint: scale. The #5 artwork is unbelievably small for how high the ceilings are.
The furniture is huge! And too many pieces for the space.
Nina’s artwork has no impact and is confusing.
Many on HGTV’s Facebook.com fan page are happy to see her go. Many have very strong feelings about this season. Here’s what they are saying:
Janell Adams said, “I just finished my recorded episode of Design Star from Sunday night. I’m done. I can’t watch this nonsense anymore. I’ve deleted the series from my Recording List and I couldn’t care less who wins, loses, or jumps off a building. The designers are disappointing, the format is disappointing but the most disappointi…ng? The judges. I used to love all of these designers in their own shows and “real” personalities. But their “Design Star” personalities are rude, mean-spirited and egotistical. Man – whoever got ahold of this show and tore out it’s guts – killed it.”
Joe Melito says, “Design Star is so disappointing this season, the designers are not creative or innovative at all and the challenges aren’t as good as prior seasons, it’s been a train wreck.”
Julie Chapa says, “Just watched this weeks Design star episode and I have to say these are the worse (sic) designers they’ve ever had! Totally dissapointed (sic)!
Ilene Roldan says, “Design Star, none the designers from this season deserves to have their own show.”
Positive comments are much harder to come by:
Mary Sue Till, “I love Design Star……”
