It may be summertime, but the HGTV Star crew headed to Occidental College in Los Angeles for a seriously school-spirited design challenge. Two of the school’s Greek houses were in desperate need of TLC, and the designers were ready to replace those lawn chairs and beanbags with something slightly more — erm — aesthetically pleasing. The girls, Tiffany and Anne, made over a sorority living space, while the boys, Boris, Brooks and Jeribai, took on a fraternity community room. You would think having an extra designer would give the guys an advantage, but that just wasn’t the case. The girls reigned supreme this week with their use of red-orange accents mixed with cream and gray.
Hear the judges’ candid thoughts about each space (the words “funeral-like,” “black hole,” “depressing” and “tomato soup” were used). Plus, did the designers feel they truly executed their visions?
