Let’s Talk Design Star

Nothing beats the Monday Blues like HGTV's Design Star!

It's time to check in.  Did you see last week's first episode?  Who did you love?  What spaces inspired you?

Here's the Season 6 crew in New York City!

There was already a bit of juicy drama already among the contestants.

My favorite designer is Kellie.  She's cute, and I can relate to her style! Plus did you see her big "oopsey daisy"?!  She spilled paint all over the hardwood floor.  Yes, I can relate to this girl!

In Episode 1, the contestants made over their own house!  Kellie created this fun space under a stairwell.  It was a clever and creative way to make over a space that would normally be a little awkward.

What did you think about this bright orange bedroom?!  Eek!  I would have a hard time relaxing in here, but it was a bold statement.

My favorite part about this chic room is the mural. Great idea!

I LOVE how this mirror creates a focal piece on the patterned wall in this bedroom.  Amazing!

But I agree with the judges... I am in love with this tire coffee table!  What a great conversation piece!

I can't wait to see what's in store tonight for Episode 2!  If you missed last week's episode, it's not too late to jump in.

Design Star episode 2 is tonight at 9pm/8c on HGTV.

I'll be watching, bowl of popcorn in hand.

  1. I’m with you! I enjoyed the premier episode – I think the contestants are very creative; it’s going to be a good season! I love that tire table! I think the judges were spot on in their reviews too! Looking forward to seeing tonight’s episode! 🙂 Michelle

  2. I so forgot to set my DVR thanks for the reminder! I need to catch up on eposide 1!http://runwithglitter.blogspot.com/

  3. I loved the first episode but I like when there are less contestants because they will show more of the projects. I am bummed they didnt have enough time to highlight more of the DIY projects they were doing. Except that awful unfinished relax sign…UGH!

  4. I’ve seen commercials for this, but we have yet to catch an episode. Looks like I’ll have to make some popcorn and watch it with my daughter. (My other one is in Utah for FOUR weeks! 🙁 )

  5. I like Kellie too. I think she is a good blend of fun and traditional. Also her home town is only about an hour away from me so I’m rooting for my homestate girl.

    I can’t wait for the white box challenge! LoVe It!!!

  6. I keep seeing all these wonderful posts about Design Star, and I can’t seem to find it on tv in Australia! I am so envious!

    I caught the rerun last night and was hooked! My favorite was Kellie’s partner for the project, Karl! Their room was my favorite, I loved it! And does Cathy Hobbs not remind you of Martha Stewart?? She sounds just like her! Can’t wait to watch tonight!

  8. I agree I love Kellie!
    Unfortunately I relate to her spill too….
