hgtv design star...series 5...episode 2...

i'm a week behind with my hgtv design star round ups...but here we go...

episode 2 saw the men pull together and the already annoying nina take a bit of a fall...

this episode saw the first ever design star fashion show...the contestants were challenged to design an apartment based on the outfits worn in the fashion show...

after they all selected their outfit of choice...the catch dropped...they were to form teams, men against the women...and every outfit chosen had to be incorporated into the design...

clever and funny idea for a concept...yet a bit thinly stretched as far as i'm concerned about creating a cohesive scheme for an apartment...

anyway...the men won this challenge...and they did manage to pull together as a team and create a winning scheme...from the outside they were working as a team, i already think the next design star is among this panel...

the closest anyone got to a literal translation of their outfit was michael's leopard skin rug inspired by his outfits leopard skin print...no need...a bit more ingenuity and creativity there please michael...

the bedroom was our man dan's chance to shine...working together with alex who had selected a bridal gown, while dan had selected bright printed pyjama's...


take away the dodgy throw and pillows and i think they created a great scheme...things started to fall a bit for alex, and it was dan who stood up to the mark and helped him out with his ability to handle some of the carpentry needed...

the bright pink works really well against the black and the influence of the bridal gown on the bed-head wall looks great...the headboard is as commanding as any couture bridal gown walking up the aisle...i agree with the judges comments regarding the light fixture...something more powerful and attention grabbing could have worked well in this space...

nice work dan and alex...


i wasn't as blown away by the living room scheme but i did like courtland's colour stripped wall...
