What is their obsession with feature walls? Can these "interior designers" not come up with anything better?? And why do they want to make bedrooms look like hotel rooms? I don't want to live in a hotel!

Okay - rant over!

Couldn't agree more!

it's quick and easy to make a big impact change.

I never understand why anyone would want to inflict such crap decorating on their friends/family. Even from the end of a camera lens I can see how shit the paintwork is. There's a reason you should take your time painting/papering etc.

I would really love to see a close up inspection of the work after 60 mins. Haven't really watched it much over the last couple of years, has anyone actually hated the make-over yet or is it still all gushy?

Are you watching now? That red room is so awful.
And the blue room - the walls are lumpy!

I saw one the other day with the living room decorated in bright yellow and black stripes. It was like a bumblebee had been plastered to the wall.

The owner said they loved it - through a very false smile. It was quite obvious they hated it and wanted to paint it back.

Are they still painting over patterned wallpaper?

headfairy Thu 23-Jun-11 14:38:47

I am watching now... those panels are quite clearly to hide shoddy paint work. And they always trample paint on the carpet.

It isn't even a nice red. It's horrid.

What on earth is that silvery dressing table??

FriskyMare Thu 23-Jun-11 14:39:18

have just turned over - oh dear lord shes actually putting nipple tassels on the wall!!Is it a brothel this week?

headfairy Thu 23-Jun-11 14:39:19

urgh, that red room looks like the waiting room in a brothel (not that I've been to many mind grin)

HazeltheMcWitch Thu 23-Jun-11 14:40:09

It IS like a brothel! A brothel decorated by a very angry person with a credit card and a catalogue.

Awomancalledhorse Thu 23-Jun-11 14:42:48

Great. You've all got me watching it now angry.

FriskyMare Thu 23-Jun-11 14:43:23

Ha ha, can't wait to see the reaction!

manchurian Thu 23-Jun-11 14:45:08

At least the red walls will cover the designer's blood after the owner attacks her for those atrocious walls.

HazeltheMcWitch Thu 23-Jun-11 14:45:41

Bah, she clearly expected them to be there. Not an iota of surprise.

But am sure she WILL be surprised when she seems the Red Room of Prossie.

FriskyMare Thu 23-Jun-11 14:45:46

Have not seen the red walls yet!

HazeltheMcWitch Thu 23-Jun-11 14:45:59

seems SEES

headfairy Thu 23-Jun-11 14:46:08

hazel, that's because it was the 4th take of that shot!

HazeltheMcWitch Thu 23-Jun-11 14:46:30

Frisky, it's not just the walls - it is the whole 'bloody' room!

HazeltheMcWitch Thu 23-Jun-11 14:47:13

blush headfairy - that does makes sense...!

headfairy Thu 23-Jun-11 14:47:24

urgh, that study is so... bitty. there's not one thing that pulls it all together.

Awomancalledhorse Thu 23-Jun-11 14:47:43

Wow, that flower room is awful! The photo mural doesn't fit the wall properly.

headfairy Thu 23-Jun-11 14:48:16

she looks deeply unimpressed with that spring meadow mural!

HazeltheMcWitch Thu 23-Jun-11 14:49:08

Lumpy, bumpy mural that no camera angle can disguise. But still not as lumpy as the Blue Room!
