    Well, the good news is I didn’t have to spend Valentine’s Day sitting in a jury box. The bad news is, it’s the day we found out that HGTV decided not to go to series with our design TV project. And … Continue reading


    Design TV Update – Focus Group

    Just wanted to share a quick, design TV-related update here since we finally heard a little bit about what’s going on with that right now. Apparently, somewhere in Atlanta, a group of randomly-selected folks (called a “focus group”) will be … Continue reading

    We spent yesterday shooting “pick ups” (little bits and pieces of footage and audio that didn’t get recorded the first time around) for our pilot episode for HGTV. And even though it was significantly chillier here at our house yesterday than … Continue reading

    Scenes From A Dining Room Recording Session
