thank you...


Much thanks to everyone that watched "Rate My Space" this past Sunday and wrote to me about it (here, on MySpace and on the HGTV website) We are all so thrilled to be a part of this show and the experience is way cool. If you missed the episode you can watch it in full, see some before and after pics, apply to be on the show as well as re-rate the room and leave a comment here:

The photo above is one of the before shots from the first episode, "Trying Tuscan." Jaime & Sandra love their new home and were trying to warm it up, add some vibrant color and create a place to gather. When they posted their before pics on RMS they got 2.5 stars. They were in need of a little help to get them off the ground and closer to a 5 star transformation. They found some really cool inspiration rooms on the RMS site and wanted them as a jumping off point for their own home. They even got to video conference with their fireplace inspiration, HOW COOL IS THAT?

This transformation was less about a theme and more about a feeling the homeowner's wanted.....So, we picked up the tab on this makeover to give Jaime & Sandra a place to relax and be inspired in.

This was the first episode we shot back in October '07 and we all were excited, nervous and thrilled to be a part of this unique concept of interactive design with the RMS on line community.

For those of you that have asked about the wall colors, furnishings, accessories & where to get them, here is some info:
My good friend MARTHA STEWART colors from LOWE'S (OK, I have never met her...BUT HOW COOL would it be to meet her?)
-SUGAR CONE
-WOODEN SPOON
-POTTING SHED GREEN
All used in a flat finish

-Entry table and the two burnt orange leather chairs:
H.D. BUTTERCUP (www.hdbuttercup.com)
-Entry way and dining room chandelier, front doors, curtain rods, drapes, stone for fireplace & entry floor:
LOWE'S (www.lowes.com)
-Rug, fireplace screen and couch:
CRATE & BARREL (www.crateandbarrel.com)
-Iron wall pieces
PIER 1 imports (www.pier1.com)
-many other accessories were bought at local antique stores.

Check out the show and tell me what you think? Look for us on our regular time slot, THURSDAYS 9/8c. Who knows...I may be coming to your house next!

Go Forth & Design Well,
Angelo

Angelo, That show got me so excited about redesigning my dining room. I love the draperies. Would you please tell me where I can get them? Thanks so much.

So glad to hear that the RMS got you excited about re-doing your dining room. I love when design can do that. The drapes were bought at LOWE'S as were the curtain rods. Good luck with your room and share pics when you're done. -Best, Angelo

Loved Sunday's show. Tuscan design is so beautiful. Could you please tell me where I can purchase the draperies? Can't wait for Thursday night's show.

Love the show! My hubby is still sighing...not only is he a RMS website widower (figuratively), now I'll steal his remote control each Thursday! LOL!

Informationally, did you know that the Mariposa490 (whose room/lamp you just featured on your spacecast) is the bloginista "Visual Vamp"?

The show aired over more than a year ago and it is still great. This episode might have been your first but it set the tone for something amazing. You are awesome and so is your vision of design. Now all I need to do is figure out how to get those burnt orange chairs and you are in business. Call me when you are ready to come to WA.
