    David, I'm at a Miami bay front apt. I'd like to bring blue mid-tones into the area, but I like vibrant colors as well. I love the color of the chairs you're sittin on the pic. You gave me a great idea! I think I'm going to mix them! Mid-tones and vibrant! Do you approve my way?

    I agree Sandy and Sheila. David, I have my DVR set to record practically all HGTV shows First Run Only and hardly anything records anymore because it is all re-runs. I have seen it all before. Is HGTV going broke? I'm worried.

      Good question! They need to get back to designer shows. I love the Property Brothers, but they use the same old template over and over when showing buyers what their remodeled home will look like.

    It isn't just color but also style…sometimes it is difficult to combine the colors you love with the style you like, so how do we get it together?

  7. Iris says:

    I agree with all of you please,please,please bring back the designers house hunters and love it or list it teaches us nothing. I hardly ever watch anymore.

  8. Carol says:

    I am so over house hunters. Please more design shows. Love Candace, and David

  9. Ila says:

    I enjoy the love and list show. The rest of HGTV boring and re-runs. I really liked the designer shows with Candance, Vern and etc. Cooking channel I don't watch, not interesting to me.
