I haven't watched Genevieve Gorder do anything in years. I did not care for her years ago when she was on Trading Spaces and still refuse to watch her. Just not my cup of tea in style or personality. Maybe she's different now.
I do love Nicole Curtis though. I don't like all her style choices, but IMO, she is focusing on refurbishing when people don't have a lot of other options. For people with limited resources, it's a good option to refurbish. She tries to stay on a shoestring budget and I can relate to that. To each his own though. I get it. Sometimes personalities just don't mesh with our own.
