Time for Design Star!


I saw a commercial the other day that got me jumping off the sofa. The new season of HGTV’s Design Star is starting this Sunday. I love that show! Do you love that show?

The first year’s winner was cutie-pie David Bromstad. You remember him, the guy who couldn’t keep his shirt on? Men and women all appreciated him taking it off, but that got to be old news after a while. He won Season 1, and that was a very well-deserved win.

The Season 2 winner was Kim Myles. She now has her show, Myles of Style. She’s got a great smile and personality and good design sensibilities as well. Both of them seem to have done very well with their own shows.

But hmmm, whatever happened to Season 3’s winner? Come to think of it, I cannot even remember who won last season! I think it came down to two people who I wasn’t all that excited about, and one of them won. So I guess that tells you that not everybody is cut out to be a design star.


Hopefully this season will have a better group of candidates. I’m always amazed at the challenges they come up with, and how the designers are able to pull off some pretty incredible rooms in the short time frames they’re given. It’s drama, it’s catty, it’s over the top, and it’s fabulous!

The show will be on HGTV Sunday nights at 10/9 Central. I’ll be tuning in and giving you my thoughts, and I want to hear what you thought also!
