I had never watched Jasmine's show before this, and I watched a bunch of season 1 and I'm not sure if it is that she doesn't have a design concept going in or if she isn't good at communicating it. When I see some designers--such as Leanne or even Alison, or Joanna Gaines, I can understand how it all comes together in their heads--into a cohesive design---not always a design I like or agree with but I do see they HAVE a plan. After I watched Hidden Potential, I noticed a lot of details--she bought or installed pretty things, but all those pretty things didn't make a memorable impression for me. But with that said--their mission was not to design the prettiest home--it was the most $$$ amount added to the value, so it made sense to me that Jasmine and Mina would come in on top--that is what their businesses are. I honestly could not repeat many details of either of their homes--they were nice but I didn't get that excited. I always think Good Bones homes are nice but over-decorated and tight on space. I assume their buyers send back all the stuff and furnish the homes themselves --but who knows?
I really did like Leanne's house and I personally know people who would buy that one even tho it is really different--a wealthy couple whose kids are out of the house--retired to CA, they collect art--they'd love it. I liked some aspects of Allison's house--in particular the black stuff over the fireplace and I loved those big windows the way they looked closed--very elegant. I don't like her much but there was an overall feeling about her home that I liked--maybe because I'm from Chicago and now live on the East Coast?
