I have to give a big congratulations to the new HGTV Design Star, Emily Henderson!!! For those who were following the tweets last night, many in the interior design world were on the edge of their seats waiting to see who would win their own show on HGTV.
I truly believe the best designer won last night. Something about Emily’s style really appeals to me. She’s quirky, fun, and creates spaces that are fresh. I think she is just what HGTV needs, and I hope her show concept of taking a person’s style and turning it into a room (yes, as Jaime Derringer from Design Milk mentioned last night – very Domino-esque) comes into fruition. I really want to watch it!
Whether you liked, or disliked this year’s format, one thing is sure, Design Star got the interior design community talking and it has been fun tweeting with many of you and reading your comments throughout the season. I am also honored that I was able to participate as an online guest judge this season and bring you some wonderful interviews with HGTV Design Star judges Genevieve Gorder and Candice Olson, and contestant Alex Sanchez.
Congratulations Emily! We can’t wait to see what you design next.
