Top Design Will Return, Attempt to Be Unbeige

TopDesign.jpgSpeaking of Bravo reality shows, it looks like Top Design will be coming back for a second season, and we’re loving Entertainment Weekly‘s recent description of the competitive decorating show’s first go-round as “about as thrilling as staring at a beige wall.” In the quest to unbeige-ify Top Design, the network turned not to us but to Magic Elves (the production company, which may or may not be staffed by actual elves) with the hope that the company can work the same magic that they have on Bravo’s Top Chef and Project Runway. The word is that season two will feature “more accessible design.”

And what about the judges (avuncular Jonathan Adler, Elle Decor‘s Margaret Russell, and the fascinating Kelly Wearstler) and host (Todd Oldham, who delivered his lines as if reciting a poem)? Their fates are aparently not yet decided. When EW asked Magic Elves’ Dan Cutforth if they would return, he said only, “I’m sure there will be some changes.”
