It’s never easy to be the first one sent home on a reality competition show, but HGTV Design Star Season 5 finalist Julie Khuu is taking her dismissal after the premiere episode in stride. I spoke to the Santa Ana interior designer earlier today and got her take on the good, the bad, and the bitchy.
The White Room Challenge is a given on every season of Design Star. Did you come prepared with ideas for this task?
Of course. I had been thinking about the White Room Challenge ever since I knew that I made the show, but because of the different variables and conditions, you can’t really plan anything. I really wanted to do a million things at once! The hardest thing for me was just to focus on one idea and run with it.
