Interior Destroyer

Dear Trading Spaces,

I love you. I really do. You inspire me....

Except for that one room you did... You know, the lime green one.

Oh, and the tangerine one.

Come to think of it, that really bright yellow one that was kinda big-birdish was a little offsetting as well.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for design shows. Please, find the next great design star. But could you make them do a room for normal people? You know, normal people that don't think it's super awesome that you made their room all black? Or covered with hay? Or chartreuse?

Because I'm a fan of color. Really, I am. I was just hoping you could do the room a nice, neutral color, with a pop of tangerine and not the other way around....

Much Obliged,
The MomBabe

P.S. I guess what I'm really asking is why did you ever hire Hildi? It truly pains me to watch her kill someone's home.

P.P.S. Has anyone ever liked her stuff? How does she make money?

P.P.P.S. Seriously. Would you hire her? Do you think it's edgy when she staples silk flowers to your wall? No. I'm totally serious here.

P.P.P.P.S. Do you think that if you were a REAL client she'd do something pretty? I mean, she'd have to... right? I mean, WHAT DOES THAT PORTFOLIO LOOK LIKE.

(yes, I know I already signed my name once, but then I had some other thoughts... besides. This is MY letter.)
