"Beige Hell." - Victoria Byrce

My idea for Love By Design (A Sex and the City meets HGTV Romp. Sparks fly on camera as interior designer Victoria Bryce breaks in temporary co-host Aussie Russ Rowland. Arguments over design plans and measurement mishaps ignite passions behind the scenes. But when the past collides with the present will the foundation they built withstand the final reveal?)
started with my love affair with HGTV. I'm addict - though if you took a tour of my house you wouldn't know it. So I wondered what the conversation between Victoria and Russ would be if they walked into my house to do a makeover... and here it is.... they start off in the living room...

 "This is beige hell," gasped Victoria.
 "True, it could use some color."Russ plopped himself on the the leather couch. "Look these seats recline AND have cup holders. Genius!"
 "Cup holders are for cars."
 "Come on, luv, a nice glass of Merlot right at your fingertips while watching a chick flick on this beauty of a big screen TV."
"You know how I feel about designing around TV's."
"I do. Let's go check out the bathroom."
Russ led the way but upon entering he backed out. "No. You don't want to see it. It's a job only Bath Crashers could manage."
"It can't be that bad." Victoria tickled his sides so he would let her by. "OMG! It's blue. The tub. The toilet. Everything is blue!"
Russ and Victoria ventured down the hall to the master bedroom. 
"A romance author sleeps in this room?" Victoria expected a canopy bed with rich bedding and plenty of frilly pillows not the basic bed with a blah comforter. "How does Liz Matis get inspired to write those hot sex scenes?" 
"I'm sure her husband takes care of that."
"How does HE get inspired?"
"All a man needs is a bed. In fact," he circled his arms around her, "I'm feeling inspired right now."
"We can't keep having sex in other people's homes. What if we get caught?"
"She's a romance author, she'll understand."
"True, she might put it in one of her books."

Yep, I sure did! Read about it in Love By Design!

Side Note:  HGTV is welcome to come into my house and do a makeover. Just saying...
