I’m here to make friends. The White Room Challenge.
The episode I was on finally aired! We shot it almost 6 months ago so I was nervous my room wouldn’t look like I remembered it.
My theme was 80’s southwestern road trip because I had just gotten back from Texas/Arizona/New Mexico and it was the first thing that popped into my head. They didn’t make it clear on TV but you had to pick your paint colors before you got to see what was in the salvage yard. It’s really hard to guess with nothing to go on!
I was stoked to see hubcaps in the salvage yard after already choosing a road trip theme. I love, love, love how the light turned out. It cast amazing shadows in person. Alas I wasn’t allowed to keep it.
My finished room. The judges hated the picnic table but I stand by it. It’s a fun, graphic room!
A friend pointed out the pallets work with the theme, a nod to all the trucks on the open road.
Monica’s winning room. It was prettier in person, I don’t think this shot does it justice.
Adam’s space would have been more dramatic with a little editing. It does feel dark and spooky like New Orleans, where he’s from.
Zeinab’s room. It was fun and cheery, just like her. Fun fact: she lives in Los Angeles and we totally hang out!
And here are scenes from the rowdy viewing party my friends had. I was really charmed by how enthusiastic everyone was.
Nickname pennant. Thanks guys!
