Watching the premiere of Top Design Season 2, I actually felt like I was back on the show again! My stomach hurt! I could feel the nervousness mixed with the excitement of each of the designers. I remember when I arrived to compete on Season 1, having no idea what was in store for me, just throwing it all to the wind in hopes to show the world what I could do ... In fact, this season I did come back, but this time I worked behind the scenes as the "Design Consultant" Whew! What a relief!
The minute the designers arrived they were given an incredibly difficult challenge: an entire loft to design, bare boned, cold and raw.No carpenters, no seamstresses, and who on earth was going to hang the wall paper? "Are you kidding me??" That was my "consult" when the producers told me what they had in mind. Regardless, I have to hand it to all of the designers for jumping in head first with great attitudes. This challenge was an excellent way to shake it up and shake 'em out. In the world of design there are always difficult circumstances, whether it's a demanding client, limited budget, impossible time frame or, in this case, ALL of the above. Somehow, someway, we have to deliver a product that we are proud to put our name on.
