  • Disco 80's nightmare.

    After a year of nothing but reruns, I was glad to see HGTV get on the ball with some new shows. The first HGTV'd show to aire had David Bromstad who I used to love, but quit watching after his move back to Miami. His style completely changed and Miami decor is just no my thing. I was hoping to see some of the old David come back but now I'll just be happy if this first show is not a prelude of what's to come. If it is, I urge HGTV to just hang up the towel now.

    David said they were there to do outrageous over the top decor but does outrageous over the top decor have to mean tacky?

    When they showed the finished room to the homeowner, all I could think about is how horrid it looked. She was freaking out during the process and at the reveal I couldn't help but wonder what she really felt. The chandeliers and panned ceiling they built were nice, but seemed out of place. The homeowner portrayed herself as a happy person interested in fixing up her place so she could entertain her family and she said she enjoys karaoke. What she got was crocodile leather floors, fake fur pillows, a hurt your eyes bright yellow sofa, odd shaped Moroccan columns, a table that lights up disco style and some white braille wall tiles. The room screamed Pimp Daddy and nothing looked cohesive about it. It was nightmare straight from the disco 80's. Too literal and in no way conducive for everyday living. I thought he could have/should have done a space that was more conforming to the house (a small 50's bungalow ranch) and liveable for everyday life as well as entertaining.

    Sadly watching this show reminded me of Design Star. You know, when Vern Yip would ask, "what were you thinking?"

    I wonder, couldn't David have been less self indulgent with his own tastes, done something more timeless and still have been over the top? After seeing his work in San Fransico, I think so. Shame on you David.moreless
