Still no wow factor. At all. Both kitchen’s turned out nice enough. But if you ask me all they had to do was pick out finishes. There wasn’t a lot of design involved. The layout was pretty much exactly the same and the cabinet style was the same. My guess is that was all predetermined; so all they did was coordinate a look. An amateur could do this. But this isn’t there fault at all. These challenges are impersonal and totally boring… and really both kitchens turned out great.
Courtland and Emily’s Modern/Traditional (I think Courtland meant Transitional) Italian (Tuscan) kitchen. For me this edges out with the slight win. It’s just more interesting with the chalkboard, purple island, and chandelier… which surprised me because…
… if you follow my blog you know I prefer white kitchens. This one is fine, but I would’ve gone a little more dramatic. Both kitchens were way over accessorized.
Judges weren’t so mean this week… maybe they need John every week. =)
I was surprised Emily was in the bottom two, honestly. Alex went home. I am sad to see him go because he really grew on me and seems like a total sweetheart. But he didn’t incorporate his item as well as the others in these somewhat silly challenges. Way to prove everyone by sticking around as long as you did. Great job!
