HGTV Never Looked So Good!


HGTV had lost their appeal to me because of their  continuous repetitions of episodes and just the lack of shows that oozed innovative ideas and creative wiles. However, that is no more!  I’m loving the new episodes of House Hunters International, the new series, “Room Crashers” with one of the finalists from a prior HGTV Design Stars, the new series, “ HGTV’d” which is a winner; the designs featured are out of the box and over the top.

The outdoor spaces above were designed by the talented and oh so sweet sounding Jamie Durie. Don’t you just love him? The slur of his Aussie accent is so beautiful too!


Now, besides the new HGTV Design Star series that premieres tomorrow, another great buzz that has HGTV’s appeal better than ever are these folks;


Cortney and Robert Novogratz(pictured above) will be debuting a new design show on HGTV called "Home by Novogratz”. The first episode airs July 16th and I can’t wait! I will most certainly be watching every single episode!


gorgeous space -rooms designed by the Novogratz

Will you be tuning in to HGTV too? XX

  6. Hi Stacey,

    I can't get enough of the home shows and especially love A House in the sun where people are looking for homes in France.
    Also love the shows where they renovate homes too.

    Happy week
    Hugs

  9. I stopped watching HGTV a few years back when their shows took on a drama-driven 'reality' slant. The only one I can stomach is Selling New York and only because of the stupendous living spaces featured. Maybe I'll tune back in again. Hopefully they've realized that there's no need to create drama in a home design show to hold an audience.

  18. Stacy dearest! Thank you for coming tonight! My home is modest, but I LOVE IT..we have taken a simple house and made it our little French-style retreat. I am loving my summer just staying home to relax, read, write a little and try my hand at watercolours. SCHOOL WILL START SOON..can you believe that?

    HAPPY TUESDAY! Anita

  19. I'm glad you wrote this post. I've been off HGTV for a while now for exactly the same reason. Not enough inspiration to pull me away from blog reading. I adore the Novogratz's and can't wait for the new series.
