I remember this show all so well and watched it religiously.
But do you remember Hildi?
Ah, Hildi. She quickly became the villain of design television. I remember hating Hildi's designs so much that it hurt. She is a genius designer, but her penchant for putting design over function and for flatly ignoring her clients wishes just made me bananas. Not to mention the homeowners! Many cringed when they learned Hildi was involved in their project. But she made for great television and I'm pretty sure her shenanigans made Trading Spaces a ratings bonanza during its heyday.
So of course when Buzz Feed unearthed these priceless Hildi rooms I had to share. Brace yourselves.
|Yep, Hildi worked her way into the design by leaving behind a little art - of herself!|
|I think it's safe to say y'all know how I feel about fake flowers. So fake flowers multiplied by a 1000? Nuff said.|
|Like everyone else, I love the beach. But sand in my house and circus color stripes? I can't even see straight after looking at this one.|
|Lord Jezus it's a floating table. And chairs. WTH?|
Did you watch Trading Spaces? Do you remember Hildi and her shenanigans?
If nothing else, it was a riot. And Hildi certainly made a name for herself. She lives in Paris and remains pretty well known.
All hay aside, I did enjoy the show and do recall falling hopelessly in love with Vern Yip's designs and was happy to see him grow and move on up to HGTV.
Thanks for all the kind words on our family room reveal this week. You guys rock!
Shout-out to all my Instragram junkies. That thing is truly addictive.
And a major shout-out to all our new clients, and the ones waiting patiently for us to squeeze them in. We are blessed.
Have a fab weekend.
