Top Design News and Recaps

Top Design Season 2 on Bravo in September 2008

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

Top Design will have a second season on Bravo.  The show is set to premier on September 3rd at 10:00 pm.  This season there’s a new host – India Hicks – but Todd Oldham fans needn’t worry.  He’s going to be on the show, but as the mentor to the designers.  Head judge Jonathan Adler […]

Top Design Final

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007

The final was between Matt and Carisa.  I thought it should have been Andrea, not Carisa who was in the final with Matt.  The final challenge was to design a 1,700 foot loft.  The designers found out their clients were…themselves.  They have two months at home to create their design, then five days to build […]

Top Design: Andrea is Eliminated

Thursday, April 5th, 2007

I was really disappointed in tonight’s episode.  The three remaining designers – Andrea, Carisa, and Matt – had to choose a cover of Elle Décor.  Then, from the cover, they had to draw inspiration to create their own luxurious living room.  Hum, keyword there is “luxurious.”  They only had $7,500 to play with – not […]

Top Design: Goil is Eliminated

Thursday, March 29th, 2007

The final four met at the Viceroy Hotel.  Their challenge was to create a high end suite.  Each had to choose an element.  Andrea got earth (and whined about it the rest of the episode), Goil got fire, Matt got water, and Carisa got air.  Each had $30,000 to spend plus $3,000 for linens.  They […]

Top Design – Chef’s Table Challenge

Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

The challenge was to create a chef’s table for a mystery chef. The designers were told he had an eclectic style and liked arts and crafts and natural fabrics. But, he also enjoyed mid-century modern. The room was supposed to be high-end and luxurious. The designers were given a $42,000 budget with which to work. […]

Tom Colicchio on Top Design

Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

How about Tom Colicchio on last night’s Top Design?  I thought it sucked because the show said it was a “surprise chef” but Bravo TV had to plug him in an ad.  I thought he was every bit as critical and unimpressed as he was during Top Chef.  But I had an idea as I […]

Top Design: Down to Five

Thursday, March 15th, 2007

The designers were divided into two teams, something most of them seem to hate.  Matt, Michael, and Carisa were one team and Andrea, Erik, and Goil were the other team.  They were to set up a tent at a party for Bacardi Limon.  They were asked to incorporate the five senses within their design and […]

Top Design: Project Garage

Thursday, March 8th, 2007

There are seven designers left.  Tonight’s challenge was to build a 3D model of a garage for a family, based on their needs.  The dad wanted a playroom for the kids and to able to get the car in the garage.  The mom wanted storage and a workspace desk.  The two girls wanted a stage […]

Designing on a Dime

Thursday, February 22nd, 2007

The designers had a college student’s budget, which was good because they were designing a eat, sleep, work, and live quarter for interior design students.  The designers picked colors then fabrics and were told they had $500 to spend…at garage sales. After this challenge, the designers got to pick a carpenter to work with the […]

Going to the Beach

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

The designers each received a surprise package tonight that contained sunglasses, a Frisbee, and a beach postcard.  Their challenge tonight was to build a beach cabana.  There were three teams:  Team Tahiti (Felecia, Andrea, and Michael), Team Miami (Elizabeth, Matt, and Erik), and Team St. Tropez (Ryan, Goil, and Carisa).  The teams were supposed to […]
