HGTV Design Star

Leslie Ezelle - Blue Girls Room - HGTV Design Star

I don’t watch a lot of TV, but when I do, it’s usually HGTV. One of my favorite shows is Design Star which premiers tonight!

I love to decorate and took a lot of interior design classes in college, thinking I would become one when I grew up. But my love of computers and technology won me over and I ended up with a degree in graphic design instead. So watching decorating shows is my thing. How about you?

One of the designers, Leslie Ezelle, is from Dallas. So I must root for my home girl… even though I have never met her or know anyone she knows. She seems spunky, survived breast cancer and has designs that are my style like the little girl’s room above. I love a modern twist to the traditional look.

Check out her before and after corporate office designs below. In the premiere preview clip, they feature her talking away trying to do a segment about herself in less than 30 seconds, while the other designers roll their eyes. Oh… this season will be goooood!

Design Star premieres tonight at 9pm/8c on HGTV

What’s your favorite show?

P.S. – I’m traveling this week to do some work behind the camera as well! It’s NOT HGTV, but still a pretty cool thing. I can’t wait to tell you about it. I’ll be crazy busy and super nervous, but will try to do some updates on Facebook.
