Okay, I'm addicted...anyone else?

  1. I blame it on Oprah...she would have those interior design makeovers, and now I find myself watching "Trading Spaces" and "While You Were Out." I love when they show the before and after pictures, and they also have some pretty cool inexpensive designer tips. I look at my white blah walls and just dream away...ahhh! Unfortunately, I live in an apartment and I'm scared to take the plunge...whatever I do, I have to be able to bring it back to its origin before moving on...Oh! what is a girl to do with such an active imagination!!!

    I caught some of the marathon...but of course they were all reruns except the one I fell asleep during! I love Vern and that curly red-haired chick...

    While you Were Out is pretty annoying. I hate both the hosts they have had, the carpenter has an IQ 5 points above being a turd, and the music kills me....(I'd rather watch A Baby Story than that!!!!! And, that's sinking pretty low.....)

    At my house it is my hubby who is addicted. I think he prefers the remodeling shows to the redecorating but he watches both. I have accused him of being turned on by women in tool belts.

    Actually Vern is my favorite...he was the designer that I had seen on Oprah and I have not seen a room of his that I don't like. I've also come to like the old guy, Frank. He's had some pretty nice kitchen designs.

    Actually, I like the carpenter on While you were out...you are talking about Andrew, right? I can just listen to his australian accent all day (and night...whew!!). It's the carpenter (Ty) on Trading Spaces that annoys me.

    I love trading spaces. I caught some of yesterday's marathon, too. Ditto on Vern, Frank, & that "curly red-haired chick." I even like some of Genevieve's designs...oh, but the other ones, ugh! Unless Vern or Frank are the designers, my husband will leave the room.

    I'm addicted to HGTV, too!

    I LOVE trading spaces!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I spent most of Christmas in front of the tv watching the marathon. I am so addicted to that show. I love Frank's designs and I love Verns designs, I also like Lori (the curyl red head), but Doug and Hildy make me want to scream. Their rooms are horrid and they don't give one hoot about what anybody else likes. Every show I see with Doug, he is fighting with someone over the design. It always ends up with him having what amounts to a temper tantrum.

    I totally agree!!! Did you see the one where Doug brought in cars for a 5 y/o's rooms...he totally was thinking of himself and what might look cool...didn't bother to listen to what the little guy would have like...I would have made a loft for a bed so he would have a lot of floor space to play in. Not too mention that one of the cars was supposed to be a toy chest!?!
    I mean first how was a 5 y/o supposed to lift the hood (heavy enough for adults) and my God! what would have happened if the hood came crashing down on him...

    I would be petrified if I was on that show and Doug was doing my room...yeesh!

    I saw that one and I complained the whole time. That is also the one where the designer put the camo. border in the womans house. I was watching both those designers that day and thinking *****?????????????????????????????????????

    I must have missed the camo border...probably because I kept thinking WTF...with the whole car fiasco. All I could think of was how were they going to get the car out of the house.
