HGTV Design Star David Bromstad To Debut His Own Show Color Splash

March 02, 2007 12:02 AM by Joe Reality

America’s vote made him an HGTV Design Star, but now David Bromstad,
with his winning smile and infectious personality, is ready to take on
tired rooms and change them into vibrant, unforgettable spaces on his
own show, Color Splash.  The new weekly series, which sneak peeks on
Sunday, March 18 at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT immediately following the HGTV
Dream Home Giveaway, will air in its regular time slot on Mondays at 9
p.m. ET/PT beginning March 19. Each week David will show viewers how
they can use color to embolden, enliven and invigorate their spaces.

As an artist and designer, David knows a thing or two about color palettes.  In each episode, he examines everything from the homeowners’ existing furniture to accessories and clothing to get a sense of the colors that inspire them.  He then applies his out-of-the-box thinking to create a well-designed room—putting his twist on the homeowner’s preferred design style.  With the help of paint and carpentry expert Danielle Hirsch, David adds "splashes" of color to the room with custom artwork, ceramics, glass, rugs, pillows and textiles.  In the end, homeowners are surprised by how much color can transform a space.

David arms viewers with helpful tips on how to work with certain colors, including how to choose different accent colors, use a triangle of objects to tie in colors around a room and paint crown molding in darker colors to accentuate woodwork. Viewers who want to be further inspired by color can go to http://www.HGTV.com for David’s top tips for using color in their own homes.

In the premiere episode, homeowners ­­­Tom and Shelly Kukuk have a traditional style for most of their house, including their big monochrome bedroom.  When David arrives, he comes up with a plan for the room that will appeal to the couple—elegance with a touch of masculinity.  He picks up on Shelly’s love of chocolate browns and uses that as his color inspiration. Tom’s only request is that the TV be better positioned in the room. When David is done with the room, the homeowners are delighted with their new and improved, warm and cozy bedroom.

    I am tired of seeing david bromstad’s tacky rooms– he wouldn’t have made it on “Top Design”. His rooms look amateurish and very cluttered. He has a pleasant personality but has to step up his work or the show will be cancelled.

    David Bromstad made over our master bedroom in one of the first episodes of Color Splash. The room looks amazing and we love it. It’s not cluttered or amateurish. In fact, we had about 60 people over for a dinner party last weekend and they were all amazed (and jealous!)

    David not only did a great job, but he designed for our needs. And my favorite part of the room remains the painting he did for us. It took him a short time but is a real treasure.

    Bromstad is the TACKIEST, designer there is.. Watch divine design for good taste.. Notice how no one in NY every hires him and he’s a joke in the community (multiple communities).
