This is a feeling I have for the Design Stars and HGTV in general, too much focus on craft but not on a coherent style. I'm surprised that this could be called a professional job. It's great that you know how to add DIY artwork or frame a piece of fabric, but not every fabric looks good framed. I love watching Design Star where contestants work hard for their dreams, but can't help but notice that many of them and even established HGTV hosts have questionable taste. Too much focus on the crafty show-and-tell and impact, and less on style, creativity, and letting the space speak for itself. Many bloggers and the House Proud homeowners on the Nate Berkus show seem to be much better designers at carrying through a coherent style that tells a personal story.

Wow some comments are brutal! Since when has scale become a negative? As a designer, I find that the the lack of resources such as space and funds could be inspiring, but so could the opposite end of the spectrum such as the luxury of time and space.
