I usually do not like "reality" tv shows, but this one is quite entertaining.
Kim Palmer
Yes, there is the occasional item you have to return, but you have a very clear sense of direction.

I really like how all of the designers on the show are friends and support each other.

If you enjoy interior design, this show provides entertaining and educational insight into some of the design processes. For years I have enjoyed seeing the designs of Mary McDonald, Kathryn Ireland, Jeffrey Alan Marks, Nathan Turner, and Martyn Lawrence-Bullard in magazines and books that I have purchased of their work. Their rooms circulate frequently on pinterest and have popular appeal. They each have different approaches to design, and I admire them all. It is fun to see them in action. Oh, so that's who you are, I found myself thinking. The show features them in their homes, with clients, associates, and with family and or friends. It's a personal look. Obviously, the designers probably camp it up a little for the cameras. The show's purpose is to entertain as much, or more, as educate. And that's fine with me. I like some froth and fun while I'm learning.

I have helped friends and acquaintances with decorating some of their rooms. I always imagined it would be easier for a designer with more background and a reputation, but see from this show how difficult it is even for top designers. When it goes well, there's no more fun job as you co-create something magical to delight the client. It's like creating heaven on earth; when it doesn't go well, it's like hell on earth. I had to laugh at Jeffrey Alan Marks' comment that sometimes he thought his job was more difficult than being president.

What I particularly like about the show is that when you have four to five designers featured, and with the different projects they're working on, you have several installation days and reveals in one show. So, the pace is quick. I also love watching the designers shop for items.

Forget the petty fights from those Housewives shows. This show is all about high end decorators and the trials and tribulations they go through to get the job done. I can see why they got a second season, the majority of the cast is witty and very entertaining. The show knows how to initially setup the vision of the project and then wrap you into the decorators drama to meet the deadline. If you like shows like Flipping Out, Top Design, or even Million Dollar Listing then this should be right up your alley.

I thought this program would be at least as good as "Selling New York", but it fell somewhat flat for me, and fortunately having TiVo I could fast forward. I was interested in seeing designs from high profile decorator's but the program focuses too much on the decorators themselves. For example, I found Mary McDonald hard to watch after the first few minutes. She's a narcissist, and has no capacity to work with anyone but herself. She's so self-enamored and such a "know it all" that she doesn't listen or respect her client's wishes, their budgets, their realtor's suggestion, or even her own assistant, who by the way, originally positioned the bed in the proper place for her clients, not for "the look". McDdonald may have good credentials, but her taste is classless, and working with someone like her would be a living nightmare. I don't think this exposure will draw new clients, it's more of a wake-up call of what to avoid! I like Kathryn Ireland, she has a great gravely voice and a good sense of humor, but she's obsessed with her breasts (who knows why?)and she's not the kind of friend I would want. Poor Martyn Lawrence Bullard and his obsession with chocolate, what kind of friend tries to get him to relapse and eat them again? As for the others, they're the more "normal" of the group, and I enjoy them in bits and pieces. Ah, there's nothing like TiVo.

I missed most of the episodes when it was on the air so I was excited to be able to go back and watch them.

I love, love this show. The designers are crazy (in a fun way) and I am always inspired by their ideas. I hope Bravo reconsiders and brings the show back. When will we be able to buy Season 2 as a block (instead of individual episodes)?

These videos are a great inspiration for me and my home. Even though I can't afford the items on view, these help to remind me to create some beauty in my home. I do love hearing the designers talk about their work. There is some drama with clients here and there but nothing compared to most reality shows.
If you want inspiration to keep you house proud, these are the way to go.

I can not get enough of Martin Lawrence Bullard. Kathryn Ireland is a hoot. I adore her baudy personal style. Its such a juxtaposition to her rather sedate interior style. Of coarse you just want to hang out with Mary McDonald. So much fun. I love all of her comments. She has the best sense of humor on the shows. Jeffery Allan Marks and Ross Cassidy I could kind of care less about, although their interior work is very very good. Its nice to have them on the show. Ross brings a lot to the mix. In fact their dynamic does add something to the show. I do find that when they are on screen I am really just waiting for Martin or Mary to get back on.
