We have Hollywood episodes tonight (4/13) so I will be posting again later this evening.
Still in Miami. A huge family room with Hildi (looks like a finished garage) and a rather small, cluttered TV room with Laurie.
I thought it was funny the HO was nervous that Hildi was doing her room, even saying Hildi was her last choice. She had a huge jumble of a room where she did home-schooling. I thought Hildi did a fair job organizing the room, although she had a strike against her with the water damage below the window that Ty had to tear out and repair. Were those termites or ants milling around behind the wall? I think that unexpected project put both her and Ty behind, which is why she didn’t get her fourth pie-piece of the storage unit.
Once again, Hildi showed how she can take a design element and beat it into the ground with a sharp stick. I wasn’t a fan of the circle fabric, but it was okay on the chair cushions or a couple of pillows. But then she had to stamp those icky circles all over the walls and the curtains. It was a huge room, there were a lot of walls. Those circles were a bit much carried that far.
I didn’t quite understand the point of the TV and the game console in the storage console in the middle of the room. Were there even cable or electricity hook-ups for them?
It was better organization, but again, it was a Hildi room, so what do you expect?
Laurie’s room was another disorganized mess. Chairs, sofa and futon placed higgeldy-piggeldy and another huge honkin’ TV. I thought the color scheme was okay, but that homage to the abstract painter was feh. I wasn’t a fan of the original.
What is up with them breaking things? This is what, the third episode where something got smashed at the last minute? In this case it was Laurie breaking the light fixture.
I didn’t like the “closet” for the TV, especially in a room that’s not a bedroom. Was it my imagination, or was the TV not fully exposed with the closet doors completely open? I asked Ivylad, and he thought the same thing, but then the HO opened the closet doors and didn’t seem upset, so maybe I was wrong. Laurie did a nice job rearranging the seating area. So many people put chairs and sofas against the walls, without realizing you can place them in the middle of the room as long as you have a flow around them. (We’ve done that in our living room.)
I miss Vern.
