Reality meets design in HGTV’s hit series “Design Star.” HGTV Design Star mixes the panel-style judging of American Idol with the wow-worthy kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living room transformations of aspiring interior designers, decorators and creative minds. The grand prize? The winner gets a show of their very own to showcase their unique personality and award-winning design chops. It’s a wildly entertaining way to pick the next design sensation that gives you an inside look into what it takes to be a host on HGTV. From zany projects and challenges to tense and emotional eliminations, it’s everything you’ve ever wanted from a reality competition. We like to tune in for the drama, but it’s also an excellent way to get ideas for your own remodeling, renovation and decorating ideas.

Rarely does an interior designer cover so many different types of design renovations as Donohue does — evidenced by the fact that Donohue’s company, 121 Studio, has been featured in a plethora of magazines ranging from House Beautiful to Child Magazine.
