Tuesday's episode was the dreaded "white box challenge," where each designer gets a white room with a few pieces of white furniture that they have to transform.
It looks like my favorite designers on the show have been reading some of my favorite blogs. The things popular in the blogosphere were also popular with these designers: bold, graphic designs (including chevron and a Moroccan trellis pattern), gold or brass accents, nailhead trim, silhouettes, and starbursts.
I'll start off by showing you a few of my favorites.
Now on to some of my least favorites.
Here are a couple rooms that had elements I liked.
I like the coffee table with the black stripes and brass washers. I didn't love the chain trim along the bottom of the couch, but I like it on the cushions.
The silhouette/starburst is my favorite element in Bex's room. But, I also like how she used the pieces of cut PVC pipe to make "columns." The buffet with the towel holder pulls works well too. Bex's personality might be a little too quirky (or trying too hard to be quirky) for me to want to watch her show.
Mikel's room didn't blow me away, but I thought it was clever to use a door mat as a stamp for his rug.
At this point my favorites are Rachel and Danielle.
