"Although each room has a very defined character, colors and patterns — even wood and metallic finishes — unify the space so it reads as one cohesive apartment," explains HGTV Design Star judge Candice Olson.
"I am puzzled by the use of solid drapery fabric that completely obscures the view outside and makes an already small apartment seem even smaller. Even as a room divider, gauzy sheer fabric would have provided the privacy Michael was after and added an intriguing sense of mystery," says HGTV Design Star judge Candice Olson.
"The wall divider with a built-in curve serves wonderfully well as both sculpture and room divider," says HGTV Design Star judge Vern Yip. "The ingenious employment of fabric over stretchers showcases how to easily create a one-of-a-kind headboard of impressive magnitude, and the complete control of a fuchsia and gray color palette is a perfect solution for a small space that demands an injection of something bold."
For the dining room challenge on HGTV Design Star season 5, Emily Henderson and Michael Moeller design a space completely out of repurposed furnishings. They paint the ceiling a bright green to create an "intentional explosion" of color, and for her project, Emily attaches plastic flowers to a chandelier and paints the entire piece a crisp white.
