HGTV Design Star is…………

 

to professional Interior Design what lipstick is to facial reconstructive surgery.

 

Good grief I have to watch it to make sure I am hearing and seeing what they are actually portraying. PROFESSIONALINTERIORDESIGNER writhes in pain and agony….the train is wrecking in slow motion and I can’t take my eyes off of it. It is like one of those nightmares where you gulp for breath but can’t seem to breathe. Each bogus decoration problem carried out in the name of interior design sets our efforts back…..ohhh to the dark ages.  Aaaarrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I also watch Holmes on Homes- http://makeitright.ca/  Now here is a guy who is actually making a difference in the world of construction and the building trades. Why oh why can’t our illustrious professional organizations come up with a similar show focused on how interior design can actually improve people’s lives or livelihoods?  Holmes is completely devoid of any drama hence proving that point moot. It is possible-

So ASID and IIDA how about it?

P.S. Okay this is interesting……why can’t this effort be part of the show???????  http://www.fox2now.com/news/sns-ap-mo–designersoupkitchen,0,2878138.story

P.P.S. So Forbes thinks enough about the power of design to ask Architects, Furniture Designers and Fashionistas to contribute to this piece-
