Plan Your Space
Small issues with space planning, such as a chair in the corner that doesn’t have the possibility of interacting with the main seating area, and a generic quality to some of the accessories indicate that Trish may have been faced with time-management issues. Overall, this design is pleasant and successful but not innovative in a significant way. The next HGTV Design Star must constantly push the envelope and offer a new perspective — even in the realm of traditional decor — and this room does not. The world of traditional design is constantly expanding to showcase new and interesting ways to include familiar elements, and Trish needed to demonstrate a little more of her unique, traditionalist vision in this transformation.
