    Tashika Morgan


    Tashika Morgan

    Hometown: Bowie, Maryland

    Age: 29

    Education: Bachelor's in pre-law from University of Maryland and working on a master's in interior design from Marymount

    Current Job: Design coordinator at Ethan Allen


    Why I should win HGTV Design Star:
    I'm the unexpected that HGTV needs ó both design and entertainment are a requirement for an awesome show, and I will exceed both with surprise elements no other person, let alone designer, can bring. Sit back, watch and take notes!

    Describe your design style in four words.
    Urban, colorful, vintage and whimsical

    Who is your design icon?
    Tossup between Sheila Bridges and Celerie Kemble

    What is your dream design project?
    Designing a shelter home or foster home ó it is so about the kids. If I had half the influence that I can use now as a designer, I'm confident I would have known that I wanted to be a designer much sooner.

    Where do you get your inspiration?
    Fashion and seeing patterns gets me revved up.

    When designing, what can't you live without?
    Paint, sketchbook and pen and lots of fun tchotchkes and trinkets

    What are your most creative hours of the day?
    All hours of the day. I know, it's a sickness.

    What do you think is the worst design trend?
    Faux paint and glazing ó dated like a desperately-in-need-of-a-reno Vegas hotel

    What's one thing about you that would surprise people?
    I was a surrogate mother to my sisters until the age of 14 when I was adopted by my paternal grandmother, aka Momzie (I gave her that name).

    Where's the farthest you've ever traveled from home?
    Well, not including in my head, Cancun, Mexico. After spending our life and familyís life savings on our wedding, we didnít think we could afford a honeymoon, but, eureka! We didnít register for wedding gifts, but requested monetary gifts instead. The morning after our wedding, we opened every single card and it was like winning the lottery. My husband and I got one of those last-minute honeymoon deals and we were on the next flight out and on the beaches of Cancun living the margarita life in no time ó a much better gift than a set of his-and-hers towels.

    What's your guilty pleasure?
    Performing in the mirror to music videos. I'm a slight narcissist.

    What's your most unusual talent?
    Picking up things with my toes

    What word/phrase do you say way too often?
    "Dang!," "Wait a minute ?" and "hot mess"

    When I was a kid, I thought I would be:
    Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show

    Who's your hero?
    Definitely my husband ó the only person who has always been there

    What's your fashion style?
    All over the place. Iím mainly urban with a touch of femininity. Iíve been told Iím a little hobo-chic, too.

    Favorites
    Color: Chartreuse and peacock blue
    Scent: Love the smell of suntan lotion (so banana-y)
    Music: Gospel is my therapy, and I put on hip-hop and Latin music for my mirror performances.
    Song: "It's the God in Me" by Mary Mary and "I'm a Diva" by Beyonce
    Food: Fruit-bar popsicles and French fries
    Magazine: Domino
    Movie: Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon
    TV Show: The Cosby Show, Different World and Scrubs
    Room in your house: Used to be the living room, but I love our office after changing the layout. What a difference that makes.
    Room to design: Kids' rooms
    Thing in your home: A peacock feather I got from a store liquidation and my decorative pillows collection
    Hobbies: Graphic design, hip-hop dancing/choreography and singing
    Vacation destination: The beaches of Greece, please!
    HGTV show: Freestyle
    Design tip: Don't let money dictate your design.

    She sounds interesting and grounded! Looking forward to seeing what she's about. I loved that she always thought that she'd be Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show!

    She's the contestant that would be considered the "local" favorite around here. I too LOVE the smell of suntan lotion, especially Hawaiian Tropic. I can pick up things with my toes, too and Freestyle was my all-time favorite show . . . when Aaron Foster was the host.

    I watched 2 episodes and I already don't care for her. I probably will not watch any shows with her hosting in the future.

    I doubt that she's going to win this, so I don't think there's a chance that she'll be hosting anytime soon.
    She doesn't seem to be doing well, but there's something about her I find very likable. Perhaps her exuberance and her passion. Some of the other ladies seem a bit arrogant and she does not, at least to me. It's still too soon, though, for me to pick a winner.

    I hold out very little hope for her. When is it that the light comes on when you realize that you are out of your element?

    i don't necessarily mind her, but i do have one comment.... at first i thought her flower pins were cute but now i notice she wears them with EVERY outfit.. does this get on anyone else's nerves?

    (yes i know it's a weird thing to notice...)

    Maybe that's just her signature....like a certain fragrance is MY signature scent.
