HGTV Rate a Room

I'm sure most of you have seen rate a room on the HGTV website. I have mixed emotions about it. On one hand, I love seeing how regular people decorate. There are some really talented people out there. Some of the comments are down right mean! I'm all for constructive criticism, but yikes! Here are a few rooms I thought were done very nicely. Do you have a favorite rate a room?

Just found your blog thru May December and I love it. The Rate My Room phenomena got old real fast for me when people became so catty. As my grandmother always told me "if you can't say something nice, be quiet". I am enjoying blogs now, much more fun! Thanks for yours.

May December? Is that a blog also? Thanks for your kind words Janet! yeah, the rate a room can get pretty nasty! It is nice to see the rooms tho!

I have never seen Rate My Room--will have to check it out. I do like the photos you have posted though. They are well-done, simple spaces. Nothing too intimidating to try for oneself.

Hi, love your blog! I've seen the rate a room page, and thought about posting, but I chickened out. lol. I don't know if I can handle that kind of honesty from strangers.

Love that middle photo (kitchen), Lisa! And I love that it's a real-life home.

Ooo, I didn't know about this show. I can imagine that people can be mean, but I'd like to check it out. I think most decorating shows on HGTV are really terrible (even though I watch the some of the ones I think are terrible like Decorating Cents - I think it's called). I like the pic with the aqua room showing beyond the kitchen.

Hi Lisa! I had my hosta garden, back porch and dining room on rate my room for awhile and had positive remarks. I took my photos off after a short while.

I remember reading some really mean remarks and was a tad worried that would happen to my rooms. But put the photos there, anyway. Not sure if I will again. My luck might run out!!;-)

Hi there, reading through some of your old posts and came across this one. I have posted rooms on Rate My Space, and have found lots of nice people; however, all it takes is one nasty comment to really ruin your day! (If you want to see my rooms, search for "countrygrl125") As I have a small house, I love your blog -- lots of great photos and inspiration. Many thanks!

Hi, I just wrote about Rate My Space, maybe you'd please like to take a look. There's lots of buzz about RMS-TV show on HGTV in June. Love your blog! I just started mine & can't figure out how to leave a list of great blogs on my home page. I would love to include yours!
