Beginning this May, Bravo will be expanding their high-end home design programming with a new competition show that challenges top interior designers to transform drab spaces into rooms that shine. —hosted by design maven Genevieve Gorder and judged by ELLE Decor Editor-in-Chief Whitney Robinson—will premiere on Wednesday, May 1st, at 10:00 p.m. EST.
"I’m so excited for everyone to experience next-level design created by the best A-List talent in the business and the future leaders in the most exciting profession in the world," Robinson says.
Here's a sneak peek of what viewers can expect from the series:
In each episode, two top interior designers will be tasked with creating luxury looks for less ($25,000, to be exact) in the homes of couples who are in desperate need of a total room makeover. In just four days, designers are expected to create million-dollar looks without the million-dollar budget, where their decorating skills will be pushed to the max.
Using the week's design theme and taking inspiration from multi-million dollar homes, designers must work with the couples to capture a luxury vision that satisfies both the client and the judges, all while battling the inevitable design complications—from a bad case of undetected mold to excessive and unreasonable demands. Contestants will be judged based on three criteria: their use of the $25,000 budget, the overall appeal of the design, and the satisfaction of the clients.
In addition to Robinson and Gorder, each week will feature a rotating guest judge, including some of the industry's biggest names (think Jonathan Adler, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Kathryn Ireland, and Thom Filicia), and other top creatives (Molly Sims, Jason Wu, and India Hicks).
