Genevieve Gorder
"Like the blue bedroom, I wish they would've played a bit with the bedding as it is the jewel of the bedroom; matching is not necessary, complementing is. Vary the bedding styles, fold that comforter down and show a beautiful damask sheet, bring those headboards up the wall in varied styles and lose the taped-up fabric from the ceiling."

Vern Yip

Executed well, these concepts could have been real winners. Unfortunately, this team ran out of steam and the paint job left much to be desired." Get the rest of Vern's tips from this challenge »
