Basically, 99% of what is on HGTV today is boring and irrelevant. House Hunters?! Are you serious?! Watching someone else buy a house is about as interesting as watching paint dry. Who is this show for? And Curb Appeal is basically one very style specific designer uglying up the yards of Atlanta with horizontal wood configurations. Design on a Dime could be accurately subtitled "how to shop the clearance collection at Target and World Market to give your home a cheap, tasteless look." But amid all of those duds is a delight, Dear Genevieve.
I know that a lot of people have their favorite design blogs or magazines that seem to "get them" perfectly. For a while, I would browse and pull an idea from here or an idea from there, but I still didn't quite know for sure what I was after. I wish Genevieve did makeovers all over the country, and that our home was our own so I could actually invite her, because I have never found anything that appeals to me stylistically quite like what Gen does. Check her out on HGTV at 3:00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, through the link above, or on Hulu.
