Designers Face Clutter and Mayhem In This Family Garage Overhaul

NEW YORK - March 5, 2007 - Bravo's "Top Design" finds the remaining seven interior design contestants working together to create a dream garage for the all-American family on Wednesday, March 7 @ 10 PM ET/PT. It's no easy task as they compete to please a demanding family of six - including three precocious kids, two parents, and a dog. Watch what happens as the designers put their skills to the ultimate test in an attempt to turn an unfinished, cluttered garage into a functional space - replete with a stage for the children's plays and costumes; room for the family SUV; a home office space; and a super-plush dog bed. With the help of special guest judge Mark Rios, an award-winning architect, one contestant will create the "Top Design," and another will be sent packing.

Joining host Todd Oldham ("Top Design" host, designer) are judges Jonathan Adler ("Top Design" lead judge, interior designer), Margaret Russell ("Top Design" judge, editor-in-chief of ELLE DECOR Magazine) and Kelly Wearstler ("Top Design" judge, interior designer), who - along with a special guest judge Mark Rios (architect) - will decide who has created the "Top Design," and who will be sent home.

And then there were two. The remaining contenders who will strive to create the ultimate "Top Design" will each design the interior of a house -- two separate 1,700 square foot lofts in downtown Los Angeles to be exact. The series winner who creates the "Top Design" will win a brand new 2007 Acadia vehicle from GMC, an editorial feature in ELLE DECOR Magazine, plus the chance to showcase their design skills at ELLE DECOR'S Dining By Design, NYC, a lavish affair where designers, celebrities, and the who's who of fashion convene for a night of style, drama, excitement and spirited collaboration.
