504 Main by Holly Lefevre: New Design Star Episode Tonight!


New Design Star Episode Tonight!

So, did you watch it? Did you Catch Design Star last week?
I watched it twice. I LOVE that show.

I will have to say I usually pick my "winner" during the first show, but this season i cannot quite put my finger on it...I want to see more. In fact, I am always a little sad when the first designer gets voted off...sometimes nerves and circumstance get the best of them and they never get their chance to shine.

Monday 7/18/11 at 9/8c on HGTV,
I get my second chance to check out Design Star
and try to make my prediction.
I will say that for the premiere episode, I wholeheartedly agreed with the judges on the room they selected to win. The bonus room designed by Karl and Kellie is fabulous - such a great use of space. I can imagine myself cozied up in that bonus room nook reading my favorite magazines!

I LOVED that mural painted by Karl (I kind of love Karl so far too).

In the Living Room designed by Leslie and Cathy, I liked a good portion of what they did, but Leslie's find of that table made of old rubber tires was AMAZING! What a cool piece that is contemporary and modern but looks fabulous in this room and is such a great focal point.

I also liked Meg and Tyler's bedroom...
of course I did it was a shade of purple
(and we know how I feel about purple)!

Be sure to check out Design Star tonight at 9/8c on HGTV!

So, did you watch?
What was your favorite piece?
Who's your favorite designer?
I must add that David Bromstad is super charming as this seasons mentor! 
Disclosure: This post is part of a sponsored campaign by Crafterminds and HGTV Design Star. My opinions are my own.


  1. I watched. Or tried to watch. My husband watched with me. Acccckkk! Running commentary from him was distracting. I shall not make that mistake again but I loved the bonus room. That little space under the stairs was soooo cool.

  2. I saw last week's episode and will be watching again tonight. Loved the space under the stairs and the painted wall.

  3. I agree with the others. Last year I picked the winner from the first episode but like you I don't have a favortie yet. I don't know what it is about this show but I love it. I think it is all the different personalities and how they design differently.

  4. I am really very glad after read here and I appreciate for the information that you presented here.


Thanks for stopping by! I read and appreciate all of your sweet words and the time you have spent on my blog. I try hard to respond to comments and visit your blogs... eventually, but I will be honest life is pretty crazy right now!

Thanks for swinging by my place. See ya soon!
