THE STYLE NETWORK is looking for YOU to nominate someone who has taken a unique interior design theme TOO FAR! They’ll have their celebrity designer re-do and streamline the hot mess of a room. They stress that you can’t nominate yourself ’cause it’s sounds like they want to do an ambush makeover on someone’s house (just have your child, mom or friend nominate you). Contact with your name, contact info and a brief description of your nominee’s space. is looking to cast you if you have a strange addiction. For example: Do you like to eat dirt? Interact with reborn dolls? Are you are obsessed with your cat? It’s for a national cable TV show starting production.
