Spinoff from Trading Spaces designer... What was the worst Trading Spaces Room?

I think one of the worst was the 'Tiffany's' inspired room that Hildy did with the blue walls and white graffiti spray painted on. Oh, and the aluminum foil benches? Ugh!! I would've freaked!!

Re: Spinoff from Trading Spaces designer... What was the worst Trading Spaces Room?

Ooh! The grave bed was so bad!!

I thought of some others:

- the records on the wall. Okay, if the homeowners wanted to change it there'd be a whole bunch of holes in the wall!!
- when Hildy put the wine labels on the kitchen wall. not so bad of an idea, but not for people who didn't approve of drinking!! (or they just didn't like drinking).
- Doug's train inspired room. A train car theme would be cute for a kid whose into trains, but not two 50 somethings!!

Vern is the only one who would be allowed to step foot in my house. The others get a little too wacky for me.

Hildy is definitely the worst.

Re: Spinoff from Trading Spaces designer... What was the worst Trading Spaces Room?

the hay on the walls that Hildy did. Ugh I don't even want to think about what it would take to get that stuff off.

Re: Spinoff from Trading Spaces designer... What was the worst Trading Spaces Room?

Don't forget Doug's Zebra print Jungle bedroom - yuck! I like some of the things Doug does, but not all of it.

Hildy also did a black dining room with a screaming yellow table. I think they called the painters in first thing Monday morning!

Vern rules!

Re: Spinoff from Trading Spaces designer... What was the worst Trading Spaces Room?

Kia's camoflage inspired room with the curtains when the couple lived on an army/navy base and they specifically said they already live on a base, they want something different than what they already see everyday! She used a parachute as curtains, MY GOD!!

And Hilde's flowers on the bathroom, come on, now is that practical?!?!?

Re: Spinoff from Trading Spaces designer... What was the worst Trading Spaces Room?

Ugh, yes that pullman room! Who would want their bedroom to be all dark like the inside of a train car? I would freak if somebody put dark blue fabric on my walls and covered up my window!!!!

Re: Spinoff from Trading Spaces designer... What was the worst Trading Spaces Room?

I would never let Hildy do a room in my house becuase I'm not brave enough lol. Most of her rooms are a little over the top for me especially the flower bathroom and the hay wall room.

I absolutely do not like Kia. If I'm having an interior desiger come into my house I don't want generic wall paper boarders on my walls, which she uses in every room. She has a weird style. That grave bed was awful and the shell room was terrible.

Re: Spinoff from Trading Spaces designer... What was the worst Trading Spaces Room?

What about when Genevieve put moss on the walls? Remember that? Anything Hildy does is usually terrible too... I don't want black fabric all over my bedroom. Oh, and Doug's movie theater room was terrible too!! I love Vern and Frank... they're the only ones I would let in my house!

Re: Spinoff from Trading Spaces designer... What was the worst Trading Spaces Room?

I can't stand most of Hildi's room - the worst was the records, the wine labels and that magenta & silver tent. Kia's garden/grave room was ridiculous.

Re: Spinoff from Trading Spaces designer... What was the worst Trading Spaces Room?

I see some of my favorites, or should I say my 'not-so-favorite' rooms have already been listed. WHAT was Hildy thinking with the records on the wall? I think the one where she did 1/2 the room purple and the other 1/2 gray was pretty bad too. I remember she wanted to dye someone's off-white carpet ORANGE. Luckily the neighbors were able to stop her. I would've killed her for ruining my carpet!

Re: Spinoff from Trading Spaces designer... What was the worst Trading Spaces Room?

UGH - I hated the wine labels and the bathroom of flowers.

I also hated the black dining room that Doug did - ycuk - the homeowner was like 'I am calling the painter tomorrow.'

Re: Spinoff from Trading Spaces designer... What was the worst Trading Spaces Room?

I agree with all of the rooms mentioned above, especially the Pullman car, home theater, flower bathroom (SHE STAPLED THE FLOWERS TO THE WALLS IN THE BATHROOM....HELLLOOO DISASTEROUS FLOODING!!)....and we can't forget, Gen's famous 'Moss wall' room! Can you imagine the stench when it started to dry out?!

The other thing I hate the most, while a good idea in theory and has turned out pretty in some instances...is when they staple fabric to the walls (Hilde again). The amount of staples she once used in a large bedroom (gray fabric, really pretty bedding...one of her better rooms..remember it?) scared me. She stapled it every single inch around the trim top and bottom and across the seam in the ceiling. I feel so bad for them if they ever want to take it down!
