For the conference room, Britany is designing a 3-D mirror wall to delight all the Kardashian’s desires to gaze upon their reflections in different angles of light. Mikel is going to dazzle us with his wallpaper, table and chair selections. Finding a table to fit the room and 14 people without overcrowding would be impressive.
In the office, Stanley is designing a desk with Rachel’s input in a design he calls “waterfall”. Every time I see a desk attached to a wall with only one leg I see something my computer and monitor will crash someday.
We move to the showroom where Bex is describing a gallery wall to Luca which I find rather amazing. Luca is zoning out and randomly nodding.
Other people’s ideas are boring.
Bex will focus on this gallery wall and merchandise display, while Luca will be responsible for the table/island in the middle of the room.
Bex and Luca begin their shopping well, finding consensus on the flooring choice quickly. The fun begins while furniture shopping. Luca wants to pick up dozens of accessories and other items, while Bex disagrees. Bex wants few if any accessories so the Kardashian-Jenner items can decorate the room.
High end design means we need to buy, buy, buy all the crap in this store. Why can’t she see this?
Bex decides to leave Luca working with the carpenter while she shops for artistic display cabinets. I can see Luca is thrilled with the laundry list of chores she leaves for him like she’s the project manager – Luca LOVES direction. Bex interviews that she’s nervous to leave Luca with the projects on his own, and calls a few times during the shopping trip to check up. If I was Luca, this would piss me off. Can you guess his reaction?
I’m busy working while you’re dolled-up and shopping. How about you come pick up a hammer yourself?
Luca is pissy and defensive, just like any evaluation panel day to this point. Bex is pissed when she comes back from shopping and her entire project is not complete. I’d hate to be on Luca’s side for anything, but isn’t he supposed to be creating a huge island?
My favorite team to watch, Miera and Kris, are at the wallpaper store next. Miera is looking through a sample book when Kris gets her attention like this: ”Hey Miera, let’s focus over here please. I’m sorry, let’s focus over here. Like, I need you to focus with me.” HUH? What ever happened to ‘hey, can you give me your opinion on this pattern partner?’ Kris is such a grade A asshole! Miera is just so pissed to deal with him she sounds like an Alzheimer’s patient at night. I guess we all sound like cranky old bitches when dealing with a young one.
Rachel finally finds her signature piece for the room when she comes across puce green velvet tufted couch chairs. I WANT THIS FURNITURE!!!!
The kind of ugly I can’t get enough of.
This sofa changes plans they had for a red console piece purchased earlier, but fortunately they kept the receipt. This type of green is a really big risk, though.
Miera and Kris: Kris plans the challenge long before Miera can provide any input, so she runs off to cry it out. I smell disaster!
Britany and Mikel have a delightful and approachable challenge but they seem too rehearsed for David. Rachel and Stanley have a decent challenge, but David wants more design information from Rachel and I don’t want to listen to Stanley kissing Kris Jenner’s ass.
Hilari and Danielle have a very winning and sunny camera challenge that David can’t find any obvious flaws in to critique. Bex and Luca spend their challenge selling the ideas rather than demonstrating them. I expected Luca to pull out a Sham-Wow; he has the cadence of a carnival barker.
