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.
