Time for judgment! Guest host Daisy Fuentes walks out and I can see dollar signs flashing in Jordan’s eyes. “I’ve got a great candle line you can sell at Kohl’s!” I’m just happy to see Vern and Genevieve walk out on camera. It’s a Trading Spaces reunion!
The Great Room by Luca and Danielle
This room is a hit, but just about every feature liked in the room is something Danielle chose or designed and Luca just ‘made it happen’. I personally love this room, and I know all four of my cats would enjoy hours of coating every surface with hair.
The Den by Hilari and Rachel
The team loves the moose head (really?), the table (agreed), and the sofa choice (yup). The molding is just silly, with the television accenting how bad the molding is and I’m gratified to see the design team concurring. Why didn’t they just do some vertical lines of molding to balance the moose head monolith?
The Design Studio by Yuki and Stanley
That dark chair is embarrassed to be in this room. Ugly, ugly, ugly! I love me some green, heck I’m wearing Citron and Forest Green together right now, but this green is horrid! Then you add the stupid ‘collage’, the orange couch, and by the time my eye reaches the metal sculpture I’ve got a migraine.
Vern says it best “I’m trying to make this wall color go away by closing my eyes but I can still see it.” Amen.
Bedroom by Miera and Jordan
Vern likes the Chevron painting, and I re-evaluate my perception of Vern’s taste. The room looks more like a Greek fantasy suite at the Settle Inn than a professionally designed bedroom to me.
Bedroom by Michel and Britany
Genevieve also enjoys the lattice work detail (it’s on the wall behind the camera in this shot), but no one mentions the strange draping over the beds or the ugly yellow-white striped bedspreads. Yuck. I love the Evil Genius chair, though.
Master Bedroom by Kris and Bex
This is one way to keep any designers from fighting over bed assignment in the Master suite I guess. Genevieve points out the bad choice in paint color, Vern mentions the awkward day bed design and Daisy is blinded by the naked light flaming though the Big Dipper.
I hate the wall color, silly little table, use of gaff tape, draperies, daybed design, stripes on the fireplace and even the purple coffee table. I kind of like the black and white pillows. There, I said something positive.
Both of the standard bedrooms are safe. Britany, Michel, Miera and Jordan are all relieved to walk out of the ‘Evaluation Studio’. Danielle’s design elements in the ‘Great Room’ make it a favorite, but pissy Luca is very self-justifying and defensive about his lack of design contribution to the room. LOVE IT! Yuki and Stanley’s Design Studio is next, and the only positives in the room are the choice of flooring (Yuki) and ugly metallic art piece (Stanley). No one likes the ugly collage (Yuki, but should be Stanley too) and wall colors (all Yuki).
In the Den, the judges are all smiles for Rachel’s contributions (moose and coffee table) but call out the ridiculous in Hilari’s molding/TV wall mount decision. Fortunately for her, they love the couch Hilari chose. The Master of Disaster Bedroom is called out for a clunky daybed (Bex) and hideous wall color (Kris) but is praised for the artwork.
Congrats Rachel! Bye Yuki!
