    Mm. I'll give it a watch, but if Hildi is still gluing hay and plastic flowers to the walls, I'm out.

    I did enjoy Vern's stuff, hope they use him a good bit.

    Aw, come on waywyrd, watch at least for the snark! Hildy will never live that hay and plastic-flowered wall down. Oh the horror! Half the fun was seeing the homeowners' reaction to some of the more hideous designs.

    I loved Vern's designs. I could do without the ridiculous, un-liveable designs too.

    I just read in Parade magazine that they are adding some new cast members, including John Gidding ( former host of Curb Appeal). Now I SURELY have something to look forward to.

    I'll give it a watch...used to love it. But I was watching old episodes recently and man...some of that stuff was horrible, and cheap with a lot looking more of a façade than useable living space.

    I wonder how far $2000 will go these days. I hope things don't look even cheaper.

    Let's hope they up the budget - $5,000 would be better!

    It looks like it's still $2000. It also looks like there will still be silly designs.

    I have to admit that back in the day I tried a few of the design ideas in my home.

    I remember reading an interview with the couple whose bathroom Hildi destroyed with all the silk flowers. They did have a sense of humor about it in spite of it being absolutely impractical to have that stuff in a steamy bathroom. IIRC, she used a nail gun to put them up....or was it a glue gun? Either way, when they took it all down, I'm sure they had to put up new drywall. They talked about leaving the lights on and the blinds up so looky-loos could see it from the street (it was on the front of the house)

    I liked Laurie, Vern and Genevieve. Frank was too down home/country for me and Hildi and Doug were awful. I still remember Hildi using WALL PAINT to paint someone's carpet with rollers Oh, and that time when the designer (probably Hildi, again) painted the room brown after the homeowner emphasized how much she hated brown. It always seemed like Hildi did whatever the hell she wanted, homeowners be damned. Some of the others seemed to care more and wanted the homeowners to be happy.
