She won!!! Yeah Danielle Colding the new Design STAR!!! We had to keep it secret since Febuary, but even we didn't know who won the whole thing. A friend of a friend mentioned our family for a small cluttered house challenge...that's us! We have been trying to live and work in a 900 square foot house and were getting totally bogged down with trying to fit our Chicago style and space into this California bungalow. We had only 5 minutes to meet and tell her our design "style" ON CAMERA! We love the form and function of the mid-century style, but our house did not reflect that at all.
There were camera's everywhere, one for the pilot, one for the show, and we kinda had no idea what the heck just happened after the first meeting. Yet, she was so relaxed, excited and easy to talk to, we felt pretty good leaving our house in her hands for the next 3 days.

Danielle rocked our house! She really really did. The layout is perfect, I have been moving the furniture around every 3 months for the past 7 years to try and make it work, and she got it right on the first try. She created a work space for me as well as the girls. Opened up the rooms so we can breathe and see and talk and write and work and paint and play. Allen is spending more time writing at home. We are all more productive.
