Y’all this is so what they are going to replace Flipping Out with and I am oddly okay with the decision only five minutes in. Carson and Thom are the sixth designer team to attempt to redo Sherrie and Dave’s ginormous and completely empty living room as well as their grotto. I thought only Hugh Hefner had a grotto. Sherrie is very indecisive and terrified she will make the wrong decision and be stuck with something she ultimately doesn’t like. I don’t think they know what a grotto is. It’s literally like a back patio.
Thom sets a budget of $130K that seems pretty reasonable to me. Thom is the designer, Carson is just there to look good.
We have another client. I do not want another client. Apparently, I do not get a vote. Zenobia is married and they inherited the house from her mother-in-law. Zenobia is a psychic and will be consulting with the dead mother-in-law on the design. Oh for the love of God, really? They are going to create a parlor for Zenobia to do psychic readings. Zenobia wants to stay close to $5K for the budget. But first, a tarot card reading. She talks to Thom’s mom. It was very generic.
Carson is mostly doing Zenobia’s room. He heads off to Mood and I miss Tim Gunn. But Swatch is there! Hmm, there is another home remodeling show set to premiere in November on Friday nights at 8. I really am wondering what is going on with Don’t Be Tardy. It’s been completely ready and sitting on the shelf for quite a while now.
This is Carson’s first interior design project. I’m not a fan of the room but Zenobia loves it. They ruined the chandelier. I don’t like the teal and the orange. I love the gold scalloped wallpaper. I might need that in my life in small doses. Not for this house though. It needed to be in a small recessed area like it was in this house.
I don’t like the crazy wallpaper or the curtain fabric for the big house. I like the furniture. The clients love it. There is a very expensive blue/grey rug that I love. The walls and curtains look better with the furniture in place. I love the patio/grotto. It has an outdoor fireplace. Everything out there was soooo expensive but not fancy.
I like this show well enough. It’s good mindless Friday TV. I’m not sure if I’ll be recapping it though. What do you think?
