HGTV Design Star

Does anyone else watch HGTV Design Star? I am so excited each week to be watching this newest season! It is fascinating to watch. Even though I haven't been too impressed by the overall projects on the first couple episodes, it doesn't take away from it being interesting. One of my favorites so far is Emily Henderson. I love her bubbly personality and her style. I looked up her profile online and, well, no wonder I like her!






She also reminds me so much of Kirsten Dunst, which is one of my favorite actresses, so maybe that's another reason why I like her so much ;)

If you haven't already, you can watch the latest episodes here.

I love this show!!! It might have to go on the Tivo with Mad Men starting back up, but I do find it fascinating to see how the mind of a designer works! She's my favorite so far!!

I love almost everything HGTV does, especially Design Star. Although sometimes I think Vern Yip can be a bit anal retentive! :-)
My favorite overall show on HGTV has to be Divine Design-Candace Olsen is a superpower in interior design. She has such style and wields it like a sword through various homes she redesigns.
You are correct, she does resemble Kirsten Dunst!
Have a lovely weekend, cheers!

No I haven't seen the show?? More details please!! You are so right though, this girl has major style. A really fresh look! I especially love the second shot with the green chairs under that awesome window with the fabulous green and white rug... And the fourth shot with the yellow chair and the cushion... All the colours dance together. And her outfit... I'm also a huge Kirsten Dunst fan. Have a relaxing weekend. Pruxxx

I haven't watched the show (I don't watch much t.v. I guess)...but those interiors are so pretty. Love the branch of dogwood/tulip tree second-to-last photo, it looks so artistic and sculptural.
You are right, she does look like Kirsten Durst.

This is one of my favorite shows, & it is one of those rare gems that both my husband & I love to watch TOGETHER! Thank you for sharing those Emily finds - they are GREAT!

Have a great weekend!

Bren said...

I love it too Shawna, even though the designs have been a bit underwhelming. Emily is my favorite too! She's the only one that seems to have a real point of view. So glad they got rid of that Nina, and her wall art! She was annoying!

Hope you have a great weekend!

I watched it last season, but I missed some episodes this season before I realized it was on. I am very behind. Can't wait to catch up.

I have been a fan since the show began. Currently I am not watching any series of shows. I can't stand to just pick up on random episodes, so I guess I'm just in the dark this time around. The end of school and being gone this whole summer has put a dent in my T.V. watching. I say that like it's a bad thing??!! Keep me posted and I'm glad you can identify with one of the contestants. That's hard (at least for me) when you get through of season of any reality tv and you can't root for anyone b/c you just don't get them. Enjoy! p.s. I usually watch So You Think You Can Dance and that hasn't happened this summer either!

Rosie said...

hey there girlfriend...No I have never seen this show, but I will look for it now...sweet dreams...Rosie

Abby said...

Never heard of her but I adore the pictures above. The first one is so spacious and light. So welcoming, too. Happy weekend;-)

Amanda said...

I have that first image in my inspiration folder - such a beautifully styled room x

The Zhush said...

Oh wow! Thanks for sharing her work here...so clever of you to look it up, really like it as well!

Bren said...

I like Courtland too! Hopefully he gets his act together. :) I've actually worked on two AFI videos. Miss Murder and Love Like Winter. They're great guys. Super sweet!

There is something so beautiful and relaxed about that first shot. So un-styled but absolutely divine!

One Pair Two Pear said...
