More than colors clash when 12 of the hottest up-and-coming interior designers square off. Todd Oldham, acclaimed fashion-turned-furnishings designer, hosts the competition, while Jonathan Adler (known for his mod-inspired style), Margaret Russell (of Elle Decor magazine), and Kelly Wearstler (designer for Viceroy Resorts) serve as judges.
Bravo's all-new competition reality series premieres with 12 of the country's hottest new interior designers, artists and architects, who will draw upon their creativity and expertise and compete to create the "Top Design." In this first kick-off challenge, both teams must design an inner sanctum for a mystery celebrity.
In the second "Top Design" challenge, contestants will each be given a dossier for individual clients for whom they must design a bedroom. Halfway through the challenge, with their sketches finalized and the shopping completed, they will learn there is a big and small twist. Only one talented designer will win.
It's all about rest and relaxation for the remaining contestants as they head to the beach in the third episode of "Top Design, "or so they think. The sun and sand will turn out to be the grounds for another challenge.
Every talented interior designer must have an "eye for design," and this fourth episode will test the eye of each of the remaining contestants. They must create a living and work space for their clients, who are all design students, using uncommon materials.
The fifth episode features the designers working with the all-American family: three kids, two parents and a dog, to create a dream family space.
