Interior Design Disaster Show

Homeowners in NEW YORK or LOS ANGELES: Do you have an interior decorating disaster in your home? Did you complete a DIY makeover that should have been a DI-Don’t? Has your design dream turned into a nightmare? Then HGTV is looking for you!

HGTV is NOW CASTING energetic, fun-spirited homeowners in NY/NJ/CT and LOS ANGELES areas who want to remedy failed decorating attempts! Friends and families of homeowners may also apply. If you think your friend or relative needs a decorating intervention, let us know!

Homeowners, AKA the Design Victims:

• Must have created a hideous room that can be fixed cosmetically. Horrible color schemes, decorating “themes” gone wrong, “kitschy” becoming tacky—all of these are great! Loud designs welcome!
• Must have a family member or close friend who is troubled by the hideousness of the room. Homeowners also encouraged to apply.
• Must have at least a little sense of humor about the room and willing to take some gentle teasing about it.
• The room may have been designed and decorated by the homeowner, a friend/relative, or even a hired designer. NOTE: rooms that were decorated by the previous homeowner will not be considered.
• Home must be within 60 miles of Manhattan or downtown Los Angeles.

If you think you might be a victim of your own self-inflicted design wounds, apply now!

Our design expert will deconstruct your decorating and help you see where things went wrong. Then, let the fun begin! Our host will bring the room down to the bare bones and help you redecorate it! This includes furniture, window treatments, finishes and accessories—and this time end up with a room you can be proud of!

Taping begins in mid-June, and we are casting ASAP!
