Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to introduce myself and my blog. I work for a home plan design company that has discovered that since women make or influence 91% of home and home product purchases, marketing our products with women in mind just makes sense. Thinking of "how a home lives" from a woman's perspective produces home designs that men love too! Not only do we have woman-centric home plans, but we also publish Her Home magazine and have a "Woman-Centric Matters!" education program for home builders.

Our new blog at: http://womancentric.livejournal.com contains interesting information about the economic power of women as well as handy tips about home interior design and planning and information about the home building process. I encourage you to visit and comment. I also am available to answer questions and value any helpful feedback you can offer about what topics YOU would like to see in the blog.

Thanks very much! I look forward to seeing you around!

Melissa from Woman-Centric Matters

I only caught the end of this morning's episode, why was WWE's Jonathan Coachman on?

The third wheel... [26 Jan 2005|06:32pm]

[ mood | okay ]

Does anyone think Peter seems out of place on the show?

Does anyone else just prefer Robert & Rebecca? I mean he seems nice and all, but there is just no substistute for Robert & Rebecca. =^)

Rebecca's gone insane (?) [05 Dec 2004|09:57am]

[ mood | amused ]

I didn't get to see the entire episode, but earlier this week, the show did the guy's backyard in this "Wizard of Oz" motif - and apparently, she made these really ugly sunflowers that looked like a pre-school project? Was that for real?

Hello to all [22 Feb 2004|03:10pm]

[ mood | happy ]

My friend found this community for me. And since I heart Robert Verdi ubder mucho grande I decided to join. I've always told my friends that if Robert asked me to have his kids I would so do it.
I am sad that I don't get to watch the show as mmuch as I want to because I am in school. I guess I could tape it but I can't work things lijke a VCR.

Does Robert design clothing as well? In yesterday's episode he wore an eclectic looking blue jacket with some sort of turquoise detailing.
On anyone else, it would have looked terrible, but on him, perfect.

On the same note, can we please do something with Rebacca's wardrobe? I understand you have to look hip for television, but platform thongs?

Has anyone seen the episode where Rebecca designs the room for this guy's wife, and she hangs a collage of antique looking mirrors on the wall? Does anyone know if she connected the mirrors before hanging them, or did she just randomly hang them on the wall?

I just found the love-community that I've been looking for forever :X ::hugs you all:: I'm new, obviously. I love Surprise By Design like no other - it has made me want to be an interior designer when I go off to college :D I'm going to try to apply at the same university that Robert went to [ FIT in New York ] because he's my idol and I want to be ...him. Yes. Rebecca is also very awesome. Both of them are so creative and unique and great artists. I want to write in for my sister or something just so I could be there helping them..would that not be awesome? XD

I'm done :P ::laugh::

Hi [14 Oct 2003|12:05pm]

[ mood | chipper ]

I just found this community, and I think it's so kewl that it even exists! I am SO addicted to this show LOL

I actually adore both Robert *and* Rebecca because I just love the way they play off each other. I would sooooooooo love to have them fix up a room but I'd want to be there for it!!

Wahoo! [31 Jul 2003|01:45am]

[ mood | hopeful ]

Ya know, I've noticed that most people (including myself) that are addicted to one surprise design show are addicted to all 3! Those 3 being Surprise by Design, While you were out, and Trading Spaces.

And obviously, most people favor Robert. He's just so damn funny! And he always has really cool glasses atop his head.

I want Surprise by Design to come do my room. They do smaller rooms sometimes, and for TS your room has to be 14 x 14. But someone else has to plan it for me...lol.

Cuban Influenced room [17 Jun 2003|07:34pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Today I got to see the Cuban influenced dining room in Florida. I loved the wall color- a faded bright blue - but I'm not so sure about the banana leaves on the wall and sheer drapes. What do you think??

Robert's Quote Today [29 May 2003|01:44pm]

I am watching Surprise By Design right now, and they're remodling a garden on someone's back deck in Alabama, I think it was, or maybe Altanta, something Southern that starts with an A, and Rebecca is being cool in it, I like her in this one, but Robert asks Rebecca what kind of plant he was holding, and she said "That's Barberry", and he said "Oh, I LOVE Barberry!" Ahh! That's my screen name! I love you too Robert! =) I'd love it if he read this =)

SURPRISE BY DESIGN! [06 May 2003|09:23pm]

I just came across this page, and c'mon people! You gotta post on here! It's Surprise by Design! I can't get enough of Robert Verdi, the man is just absolutely fabulous! I must meet him, Rebecca Cole seems kinda mean, but she's cool too I guess, lol. I was sitting, sick at home, and the best part of my day was sitting, watching my fav Discovery show for 2 hours! I am always in classes and can never watch it, but this was a week, 10 hours with Robert and Rebecca! Ok, I hope to see some posts on here! =) Tell your favorite episode or favorite job done. Ta for now!

ohmigod ohmigod ohmigod!! [28 Dec 2002|02:12am]

[ mood | excited ]

I just saw the post for this in tradingpaces and I got soooo excited! I LOVE SURPRISE BY DESIGN!!! I've been watching it since day one! And I try to watch it whenever I can! I can't think of his name, but the guy on the show cracks me up!!! I LOVE HIM! He's great! I love both the hosts! I think it's the best show like it on tv. Even better than trading spaces and while you were out -those two, especially trading spaces, to me at least, are getting kind of boring. But yeah Surprise by Design is great, and it's on TWICE a day! It's fabulous!!!

Welcome to the Surprise by Design community! [27 Dec 2002|11:37pm]

I'm addicted to Trading Spaces, but, I just got addicted to SURPRISE BY DESIGN in the past few days because of the marathon on Discovery Channel. I'd seen it before, but just bits and pieces of the episodes. Now I'm a huge fan, and I love their designs and Robert Verdi Rocks!!

I'm so inspired to go do my kitchen, front yard, back yard, living room, etc... Time for a Quick Change!
