HGTV Design Star, Week 2

I don’t know if any of you are like me but I LOVE me some HGTV. 🙂
It is on frequently in our house and even Travis enjoys certain shows with me.

I was really excited when Design Star‘s new season began last week.

I always love the challenges, seeing how everyone works together (oh the drama!), and the final results.

Last week’s show did not disappoint.
Did you catch it?

12 Finalist hit up New York to begin the competition.

Their very first challenge was to team up and makeover their living space.

Here are a two of my favorite rooms they redid.

Karl and Kellie teamed up to redo the Bonus room.
Best room in the house in my opinion. They did a fabulous job!

Leslie and Kathy teamed up and had to the VERY large Great room to redo.
They had a few problems, such as their original dining room table not fitting into the stairwell or elevator, but all in all, it turned out lovely.

But, unfortunately for Blanche, she was sent home.
The photos of her work online are fabulous but she definitely did not bring her A-game in her first challenge.

I am very excited about this Monday’s episode.
It is the WHITE BOX CHALLENGE episode! 🙂

Although, I don’t believe they are doing bedrooms for this season’s white box challenge, I am always amazed at what they come up with during this challenge.
Many thrive and many fail so I am curious who will prevail this season.

Episode 2 of Design Star airs tonight, July 18th at 9pm EST on HGTV.
Will you be watching?

Hope so!
I’d love to chat with you to see what you thought about everyone’s creativity during the white room challenge!
