I’m down with the flu this week, falling asleep anytime I find myself on the couch longer than five minutes. Yesterday, I started to come to with the voice of David Bromstad in my ear. He was talking about Britany and Danielle and I wondered, why is David Bromstad in my living room? Turned out Phoebe had taken it upon herself to watch the finale of Design Star WITHOUT HER MAMA.
She was all fired up over finalist Britany Simon. “I want her to win SO BAD, mama,” Phoebe cried. “She’s a FASHION ANGEL!” Phoebe went on and on, talking about how Britany was the best designer this season. “I’m sorry to say it, mama, but her kitchen? It’s prettier than the kitchens you’ve done.”
Gawd help me. I’m raising a design critic.
Now that it’s finale time, I’m anxious to see if my Facebook theory will pan out. Britany is quite the social media maven and she’s been burning up the bandwidth, asking her Facebook and Twitter followers to vote for her in the contest to win an online show. Over on Danielle’s Facebook page? Crickets. Anyone reading between the lines can figure out that Danielle doesn’t need to worry about winning an online show–she has the big one bagged already.
As for the last challenge, both designers are creating five-minute pilots for their future design show and this involves working with real homeowners again.
BRITANY SIMON: “Picture Perfect Spaces”
Britany’s show concept capitalizes not only on her skills as an interior designer, but her photography experience as well–much like the paintings David Bromstad creates for homeowners in every episode of Color Splash.
