I love the show, husband wants to know what I find good about it. I agree that it gives people some ideas on what they can try. There are some designers who have off-the-wall ideas. I think the key word is "listening" -- they need to listen to what the people want. Hildi doesn't listen - she picks colors that the couple said not to have - But you know what - it does look good when they finish -- the only show I felt bad about was the one where the lady had to leave the camera because she was crying over her finished room so much - and they admitted that they would be going off-camera and putting her room to right again! -- where do they get the money from?
