So, what do you guys think about this season of Design Star so far? Tonight’s episode is recording right now, so I’ve only seen those before tonight. So, I’ll refer to last week – don’t give away this week quite yet!
Last week was the White Box Challenge where the designers had to take a white room and decorate it. Usually the contestants have to get all of the supplies for the room’s décor from a specialty store like a candy store, but this year, it was pretty easy with the store being a hardware store called Osh’s.
What rooms stood out to you? I had two very clear favorites which probably underline my love for the graphic.
Rachel, did the room below. I love the bold colors and graphics. Way to combine patterns!
Can you even believe she freehanded that back stencil?
My other fav was Danielle’s white box. She even painted a sofa! Ha! Right up my alley, I guess. I love the graphic part of it. I’m still, after a number of years, very drawn to that – it’s like actual art. I love the way it wraps around to the next wall.
Oh, and one more room worth mentioning? Brittany’s. You know I’m into navy and white right now. I love how graphic it is in her room.
Love the chain chandelier and organic wood sculpture on the wall as well.
Is it me or do these white box challenges seem to come down to decorative paint techniques? That’s the one thing you can prepare for – you always get paint to use in these challenges.
And, my least favorite? Stanley. I know it’s “art” and I do love a good art installation, but I don’t love the balance or composition of his art.
This past week.
So far, Rachel is my favorite. Here is some of her portfolio work.
I am really enjoying this season and can’t wait to see the recorded episode from this week!
Overall, there is great talent and I think this was one of the best White Box Challenges ever. Who is your favorite?
