Kris spends so much time with his interesting camera angles and extrapolation that Miera gets less than 10 seconds to talk about her feature in the room. They were two separate people with zero chemistry.
Luca creates a flashy and over the top piece of artwork to place in the room. I’m sure it will be worth hundreds of thousands of pesos by next week.
Damn, I’m just so good!
Danielle decides to hang wallpaper on the wing wall to the PR closet, but it bubbles and needs to come down…bringing half the drywall with it. Where’s a steamer when you need one? Hilari says ‘relax!’ and paints over the peeling drywall with paint and they hide the error with curtains. Sure, that will work. I’m sure the evaluators will be so distracted by all the glitzy accessories that the wall will go unnoticed.
Bex and Luca finish up the room, with a ton of amusing arguing as the merchandising takes second place to Luca’s need to accessorize so the room is high class. As Bex states “Not Good.”
Kris and Miera
Kris Kardashian-Jenner loves it. I’m not surprised, because I find it busy, busy, busy! Vern loves how professional and chic it is, Genevieve likes it too. I think the photo installation was done in a very sleek way, but the mirror on top of that wallpaper is just too much for me.
Luca and Bex
This room has its good and bad points. I agree with Bex that the accessories should be limited and more Kardashian Krap, since merchandising is the primary function of the room. The island is ridiculously small compared to the other dimensions in the room too! I think it would make more sense to be about 70% bigger.
Kris K-J loves the gallery wall (I agree) and seems to like the tiny island. I think she likes the concept of an island more than this one. Everyone agrees that the BSG storage cubes are not the best choice for merchandising.
Britany and Mikel
I have to admit this is a conference room I wouldn’t mind debating server architecture in for hours. I might not sit on the end with the 3-D mirror feature, not due to its beauty but due to my desire to not see oily skin from multiple angles.
The table is a big hit, and the 3-D mirror wall is too since it brings dimension.
Stanley and Rachel
Kris doesn’t just love the couches; she’s surprised at how much she loves them since they are an item she probably wouldn’t have picked out. That’s actually my mark of a good designer. If I’m paying someone to design for me I want them to surprise me with something good I didn’t think of.
Danielle and Hilari
Too. Much. Stuff. Other than the wing wall problem, I didn’t have much to say about this room, if we remove all but 1/3 of the accessories. Take the pictures leaning on the walls down (like on top of the fridge!), remove half the candles and let the room speak for itself.
Kris likes that it feels like a little restaurant (it’s the high end appliances) and the stripes. Vern feels the accessories are very last minute, and Genevieve finds the jacked up wing wall like a bloodhound on the chase.
Vern has never seen a more impressive group of rooms in his seven years on Design Star. None of them was absolutely hideous, so I’ll agree. In the surprise of the night, Miera and Kris are the middle of the road couple who are safe!
Stanley and Rachel, for the tennis bracelet mirror feature (which I thought was blah and didn’t really discuss much), the inventive desk and the surprising choice of furniture.
