Let's head to the Willamette Valley in the Pacific Northwest to visit Kyrie Mead and her beautiful garden. Kyrie is a mom of three with another little one on the way. She blogs at Are So Happy and is a wonderful photographer.
You won't want to miss the photos from her gorgeous garden. Do come along!
It's all come down to this. Emily from Portland, Oregon vs. Michael from New York City. In the final challenge, Emily and Michael must choose one of their previous Design Star competitors (yes, there's a little Nina in this episode for all of you fans) to be their client. Then, they must design an apartment that reflects their client's personality while also shooting a television segment based on their own design show idea.
Both Emily and Michael have great personality and loads of style, but only one will win their own television show on HGTV. Who will be the next Design Star? Quirky Emily? Enthusiastic Michael? It's time to find out.
It's the Design Star final three: Casey, Michael, and Emily! This week the designers were finally able to show their stuff as they worked individually to design a sunroom that incorporated their own personal style as well as the concept for their own design show.
Spoiler Alert: We're telling all.
We're overdue for seeing some individual style, don't you think? So happy they've moved on from the team challenges. Plus, I love that the designers are using their show concept ideas as inspiration for their sunrooms.
