@Reever  you are very specific in what you want to see (and don’t want to see) in this genre, so perhaps you could contact QVC to have a “Dan Hughes for Reever’s Home” show.  

 

Hopefully, QVC will have several home and decor shows with a fair mix of lots of different styles that sell well.

There are many decor styles out there. I think Alberti is quite capable. But I wonder, because he grew up in Manhattan, how does that determine his designing abilities? I wish him much success.

@Reever  I'll watch urban chic decor programming before anything rustic like you've described. Cannot imagine anything like that in my home or CO condo. 

 

ETA: Don't own any mercury glass in either property. Like you, not a fan of it. But I do think Alberti has excellent decorating skills and is an accomplished host at QVC. Glad he is given the chance to show this talents, interests and personality. His personality is both endearing and filled with humor.

@Reever   I haven't been into country style decorating for years.  You are the most opinionated person I can think of on these boards.

Re: two new shows for Alberti

I like Alberti. Perfect choice for home shows.

 

I don’t really see anyone else that fits the bill except maybe 

that younger woman from the south (sorry, can’t think of her name off hand).

 

Yes, Alberti can be a bit dramatic at times, but aren’t they all in one way or another?

And that is definitely an understatement for sure!

 

As far as Alberti as a host - he is super friendly, very polite, knows his stuff, and doen’t do all this constant interrupting of vendor. The man has manners.

Re: two new shows for Alberti

I don't care for and don't watch any of the all ready prepared food shows...... 

 

But I do think Alberti has talent for decorating, but instead of a decorating style show I fear it will be more in the line of Your Home With David and just a retread of the same old products with a couple more decorating accent items thrown in...But who knows, maybe QVC will SHOCK me and give him a show more in the line of what LR did...that's what many of us suggested and would like to see...
