I miss Top Design on Bravo so much I have resorted to watching Design Star on HGTV instead. So far not one or their rooms have blown me away. The rooms on Top Design seem so much hipper. Given Bravo gives them the Design Center in Los Angeles to shop in and HGTV gives them Garden Ridge & Bed, Bath and Beyond in Knoxville. I’m assuming that is where the show is filmed since when I have been to DIY Headquarters it was in Knoxville.
I have only seen two episodes of the show thus far and my two top picks are Jennifer and Matt. Matt is a good designer but not the strongest host. Jennifer has good designs and hosting potential. It was interesting to see them have to do the little blurb on Sunday about being at the Opry Land Suites in 3 takes. It is harder than it looks I promise. You try and memorize script in like 2 minutes and say it back to a camera with 20 people staring at you as you do it and still remember to be perky, suck in your gut and gesticulate.
The whole point of this post is not for me to confess to yet another reality show addiction it is to talk about the necklace that judge Cynthia Rowley was wearing. Who made it? What is it? I want to understand it. It was this taunt hoop and I could not tell if it was metal or plastic. Does anyone know who made it? I’m not sure if I liked it or not, I just want to know more about it.
