This spring, more than colors are going to be clashing when 12 of the hottest up-and-coming interior designers square off in Bravo's all new competition reality series, Top Design. Todd Oldham, acclaimed fashion-turned-furnishings designer, will serve as host and inspire the contestants to show their most creative and original sides. Each week, the competitors will face their toughest critics: lead judge Jonathan Adler, known for his glamorous mod-inspired style; Margaret Russell, Editor-In-Chief of Elle Décor magazine; and Kelly Wearstler, designer of the trendsetting interiors of the Viceroy Resorts. The contestants will live together in Los Angeles in a decked-out studio loft as they vie for seed money to start their own design firm, a car from GM, a feature in Elle Décor, and a spot in Dining By Design, one of New York's finest design showcases.

Good, but no Runway
It's pretty good. It's no Project Runway. My question is, Apple, when are you going to start telling us how many episodes to a season before we plunk down our money? That seems like a pretty important factor in determining how much value you get for your $$.
I worked on this show
I worked on this show this past fall and just let me say, its definently more about the drama of argueing than that of interior design. If your looking for a cookie cutter mold of every reailty show ever, one where producers are looking more for arguments instead of subject matter to gain ratings, then go for it. If not try some scripted tv.
Will it Measure up to Project Runway?
Ok, so we know this show isn't Project Runway, but we do know that it was created off of the heels of that terrific show. Top Design follows the same formula; interior design projects assigned with time/budget constraints that are later judged by a pannel of well qualified members of the interior design field. One design wins and the designer of the losing design goes home with the goal being, to be the last interior designer standing. My first reaction is positive, however I do feel as though we're missing out on more of the creative insight of the contestants. I hate to compare, but with Project Runway you were brought into the smallest of details with some garments. That 'creative process/insight' intimacy is lacking in the first episode. Let's hope they bring the cameras inside the design and execution process more and more each week.
