Emily Henderson HGTV's New Design Star!
(Emily has her very own blog, The Brass Petal)
I knew once I heard Emily’s idea for a HGTV show that she would be a shoe-in. After all, there are no shows on the air where they take a homeowner's outfit or look and turn it into a room or in the case of her new show, a “Lifestyle”.
It just made me wonder if Emily and HGTV producers have been reading blogs? I have seen bloggers do amazing outfits to room blog post. Although I am not sure Emily’s idea is an original one, it is still a good one. I think this should make a very interesting show if done well.
It is quite obvious that HGTV is hurting for some new ideas. I am so tired of the real estate shows and the fixer-upper handyman shows( You know exactly what I mean don't you?)
I think HGTV must also be hurting in the budget category. Did you notice on Design Star this season every task was done in teams so there were only two rooms being done on each show? I have a feeling there was lack of funds for this years contestants. I felt like we never really got to see the individuals abilities or talents with this kind of competition until the final three.
I would love to see some shows with some REAL inspiration!! Not the shows where only a college student would want to apply some of DIY ideas. I would like to see some real quality design shows on HGTV.
We need more of Candace Olsen and Sarah Richardson type shows. I hope HGTV is reading this!
Until Emily, HGTV’s New Design Star, show appears I thought I would leave you with some of the amazing Outfit to Room images that I have found throughout blog land done by some very talented bloggers. As I said before not a new concept, but could prove to be an interesting show!

I even did a post on my own clothes matching them to a room in a post titled, Do Your Clothes Ever Remind You Of A Room?!
So there you have it!! My take on Design Star and the new show that Emily will be doing! So what do you think? What kinds of shows do you think HGTV should be putting on the air? Did you like the format they had on this season's Design Star? I think they need our in-put!!!
