FBLA Exclusive: Andrea Keller Beaches Top Design

Top Design: Episode 3 was another team challenge (enough with the “works and plays well with others” crap, Bravo) and FBLA’s Andrea Keller got to show off her building trades cred. (She’s very into the design part, rather than dish, but we’re working on her.)

FBLA: Did the time alloted for the building of the cabana freak you out?

AK: We had no time at all. we came up with the simplest structure we could think of and divided up the work–both Felicia and Michael worked
their butts off every second and in a group that is the best you can ask for–we were all panicked but committed and in it together. Best group dynamic I think I have ever had, we were happy and focused and driven and we still love each other!

FBLA: So you really are construction grrl–does this intimidate the others or are they glad to let you do the heavy lifting?

AK: I think that in our group it worked perfectly–we didn’t want to pigeonhole ourselves, but Michael is really passionate about fabrics, Felicia is amazing with furnishing rooms, and give me lumber…so we
felt like a ‘dream’ team. (don’t make fun of me for saying that!!) We first came up with a precise vision for the structure and we all went from there–we were imagining a Tahitian honeymoon, but something
ephemeral, like a champagne bubble.

That is why the whitewash on the wood, why the transparent and lightly metallic fabrics, and why ultimately I think we left it as a fragile open frame–we wanted it to look like a cuttlefish when seen from a distance, translucent and ghost-like, not literal or earthy at all.

Top Design: FBLA Goes to the Party

Bravo.jpg

FBLA is wildly excited about Bravo’s Top Design series, especially as architect Andrea Keller is a contestant. We know her from our other life, and thus are completely biased and hope she wins. In the weeks ahead, she’s going to share some tiny, insignificant behind-the-scenes details with FBLA

Keller and her architect husband, John Berry, threw a viewing party last night. Among the crowd cheering for Andrea were author/film editor Paul Seydor, fellow contestant Heather Ashton, FOX money guy turned education guru Gene Straub, L.A. Phil fundraiser Janneke Straub and <a href="http://blakkbox.buzznet.com/user/profile/, and songstress Leslie Spencer Smith.

Keller’s a member of the blakkbox group who were out in full force (and thought that Keller being teamed with Ryan “My Own Worst Enemy” Humphrey was pretty funny), as well as architect Jeffrey Allsbrook and energy visionary Dan Emmett. FBLA felt very popular–people kept shouting “She’s a blogger–don’t say anything!”

The crowd ate tamales and drank mojitos while the designers painted and pushed furniture around. FBLA always Tivo’s through this part, anyway. Loved the Robert Kuo pepper.
