  1. As Rachel said, " it doesn't take much talent!"

    So why are the judges gushing over this simple nonsense?

  2. It might not take a ton of talent to paint the design, but it does take a good eye to put it all together. It takes talent to understand color and pattern and how they can be successful together.

  5. Love! Love! Rachel's room. It really does take talent & an eye for design to do what she did. I disagree with Genieve's comment on the Owl's that room was nicely put together. Thanks for the great ideas & how to do it video.

  6. The judges are gushing, because not only does it take talent, but it also takes creativity–and guts.
