On The Road

On this episode, our Real Designing Women pull up stakes, to take their message, and their skills, on the road.

In this episode, Lori has written a book on sustainable design in an attempt to position herself as a specialist in the field. Her work attracts the attention of the Milgard window company and they send her to do a book-signing and talk at a trade show in Portland. Trouble is, in spite of Lori’s comical attempts to make anyone care, no one does.

Nina, meanwhile, is excited and flattered to be invited to create a room for the prestigious Hampton’s Showcase – a well known charity event two hours from Manhattan. Top designers donate their talents to decorate different rooms in a single house which is then auctioned for charity. After much anxiety, her foyer garners rave reviews and an unexpected treat: her design hero Mario Buatta shows up and personally congratulates her.

For Dee Dee, it’s off to Florida to personally check on the special furniture she has commissioned for the Grafsteins’ project, check in on a local reno, and jam in a polo lesson with her new fella.
