“Strangely enough, television has long remained the last frontier for design. Books, magazines, web sites [etc.] abound, but if you wanted to watch popular design-themed programming on TV, you were probably stuck with home makeovers. But design author and trend spotter Lisa Roberts has changed all that with ‘My Design Life.’

 

The show follows Roberts and her team of researchers as she visits trade fairs, exhibitions, stores and designers’ studios in search of material for her upcoming book DesignPOP. This is rich reality TV fare, with all the right elements: a high-powered lead who identifies as a design passionista, a host of moderately efficient assistants, and plenty of design eye candy.

 

But what really makes the show worth watching is that Roberts doesn’t shy from telling it as it is. She claims that her approach is “light-hearted,” and sure enough the show is entertaining and fast-paced. But the best thing about “My Design Life” is that it takes design very seriously indeed.” Avinash Rajagopal MetropolisMag.com
