sorry to squeeze out 3 turds in one post.
but this shitshow starts tonight and you need to be abreast of who's who i think..
first up is casey noble:
Hometown: Redondo Beach, Calif.
Casey, who describes herself as meticulous, driven, energetic and fun, says she was eager to start her career as a designer immediately after graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. With an associate degree in interior design, Casey worked for two high-profile design firms and managed several international design projects before starting her own residential and commercial design business. Friends and former coworkers say that Casey will be a great competitor on HGTV Design Star because she is passionate about design and serious about being the best.
don't be alarmed but all we have here are a set of polywhore mashups and some artist renderings...
really?? is this just a fucking mood board of shit she likes??!!
a monkey could have done this. no really...it could have.
yeah. exactly. whaaa? huuuuhhh??
how is she a contestant to be a design STAR?!?! my butt could put together a polyvore room.
punches all around.
meet alex sanchez.
Hometown: Washington, D.C.
Alex was born in St. Croix, Virgin Islands, and often moved between Trinidad and New York City with his family. A self-proclaimed Renaissance man, Alex grew up loving to paint, design and take photographs. He graduated at the top of his class from North Carolina A&T State University with a degree in architectural engineering. He earned extra money by selling his drawings and redesigning dorm rooms. Describing his design aesthetic as “urban eclectic with contemporary style,” Alex designs spaces for his young, hip clientele who often live in bachelor pads or one-bedroom apartments. While Alex says he is extremely competitive, he’s more excited to be on HGTV Design Star so he can inspire city kids to study art.
poop + blue = poop
i like the gray and white here. but i would have done something to disguise the fucking meter. at least for the purpose of the picture. not sure what the green post-its in the window are for. a krafty stained glass art project?
a texturized wall. (rolls eyes)
more urban dookie.
something old?? anywhere?? please?
this is not design.
i will at least give him his texturized wall. but it stops at the concept.
it already looks dated. like it came out of 1980 the way that huge bangs did. as in you look back at that shit and go what in the fuck was i thinking??
as a potential buyer of this condo/apartment the first thing i would do is rip that shit out.
i am ultimately speaking here to turds, 9, 6, 11 and 1.
lastly is nina ferrer:
Hometown: New York, N.Y.
Raised in Brooklyn, Nina says that from an early age she knew her upbringing was not typical. She describes her parents as very “open, free and artsy,” and says they encouraged her creativity with art and dance classes. After graduating with a degree in architecture from The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn – where she also studied interior design, painting and photography – Nina began her career in residential design. She created luxury homes for several high-end clients, including a few celebrities, before shifting her career to commercial work. Although Nina says that she enjoys her current position as an architect and project manager for a well-known retailer, she longs to design freely – ideally on her own HGTV show. Describing herself as confident in her design talent, Nina believes that viewers would be eager to see an “attractive, tell-it-like-it-is” Brooklyn girl create beautiful, functional spaces.
so this girl has an impressive bio, no? unfortunately all she serves up are retail spaces.
at least it's ralph lauren retail spaces...love.
she def. has skills in this department.
i love every single vignette. and she kind of created rooms in almost all of them. but i would have killed to have seen some of the "luxury homes from several high end clients and celebrities"!!
she obviously knows how to pair old and new..this is a good quality to have in my opinion.
i am excited to see what this girl brings.
well, that's it!! there are all 12 turds.
don't forget to tune in tonight at 10 pm on hgtv.
and while i am shooting for monday for my recap it could be tuesday.
i still have to complete a craigslist dining chair find for a reader.
sorry kabrel, it's coming..albeit slowly.
