About The White Room Challenge
“The White Room Challenge” comes from a favorite episode of HGTV “Design Star.” The new series will premiere in HGTV on Tuesday, April 24, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Some of the most successful artists and designers will be competing for a $10,000 grand prize. The challenge is to design 10' by 10' white rooms using outrageous elements. Some of the design essentials will include over 1,500 flowers, candy treats or treasures from dumpster diving.
The host of “The White Room Challenge is David Bromstad, an HGTV “Design Star” champion and "Color Splash" star. Viewers can expect to see a variety of creative designs on the new series including upholstery made of flower petals and wallpaper contructed of pixie sticks and lollipops.
The expert judging panel will include Jamie Durie of HGTV as well as a rotating panel of guest judges. Some of the expected judges include Meg Caswell, the HGTV “Design Star” season six winner and veteran television designer Thom Filicia as well as Dina Manzo of "Dina's Party" and Chris Lambton of "Going Yard."
The contestants will have the help of a carpenter. However, when it all ends they have to impress the expert judging panel with how they transform a 10' by 10' white room.
Bromstad wowed viewers when he worked with a white room and made it into a stellar living space by using items puchased from a pet store. He made this amazing transformation during the first season of HGTV “Design Star.” He will be a judge and mentor for the group of designers competing on “The White Room Challenge.”
Even seven years later, Bromstad remembers the pressure cooker of being in a white room challenge. He said it was a fun way to show off individual creativity and unique design perspective. He admitted they had to tap into their ingenuity, time and budget management abilities.
In a press release, Bromstad said, “It was incredibly stressful, but people love the idea of transforming a blank canvas into something remarkable, so I know they will love the competition and the designs showcased in 'The White Room Challenge.'”
The HGTV Facebook page just announced "The White Room Challenge", stating “New Show Alert... It's everyone's favorite episode of HGTV Design Star, and now The White Room Challenge is a series all its own. And who else would we get to host it? David Bromstad, of course. Coming to HGTV April 24 9/8c!”
