Well, it's an idiotic room. The room was primarily an office; typically, Hildi's shifted the focus to what she wanted to do, and away from what needed to be done. Just because these HOs were open to something wild doesn't mean they no longer cared to get any work done in the room. The "office" aspect of the room has been severely diminished, and the focus has become this enormous, poorly designed, probably uncomfortable eyesore of a sofa. Whee! All the colours in this room, to my eye, clash. The pink vinyl doesn't go with anything, nor does the wine-coloured velvet. The floor is beyond stupid. I guess they can clean it with a lint roller, or maybe crawl around on their hands and knees using Scotch tape or something. So very clearly the work of someone who has never ever had to clean up after herself. I'll bet Hildi's maid spits in her food. Also, I'd like to believe that the "drag queen's bordello" flavour of this room is completely unrelated to the fact of the HOs' sexual orientation, but it does set off the Credulity Strain-o-Meter. I don't know, maybe she knows something about Lee and Gabe that we don't. Anyway, blecch to the whole thing -- there really isn't one thing I like about this room.
MPDP raves over the colour. Hildi really wanted to make a difference in the room and give them something outrageous. I think the one thing of which nobody could ever accuse Hildi is not making a difference in a room. MPDP says that Hildi's rooms are always outrageous but also elegant. Hildi loves the floor, and the idea of the foam tiles. MPDP agrees that it's a good idea, and hopes it lasts Lee and Gabe a long time. Hildi says that it's a sturdy foam, but that it won't last if they're in there in heels. MPDP giggles, saying she hopes they don't do that too often. MPDP mentions the sofa. Hildi says it's her favourite thing, from the fabric to the fact it's something you can do at home yourself. You know, if you're insane. MPDP says she can't imagine what you would pay for a sofa like that in a "chi-chi contemporary furniture store." Please. Hildi says that the foam was more expensive than the fabric, which was only $20. MPDP says she spent $996.14. Hildi thanks her, and asks if she can have her money back. MPDP says no, and comments that that's a weird part of the rules -- that if they go over they have to pay for it, but if they're under, they don't get the money: "We should fix that." Yeah, added incentive to spend less. That won't lead to any cheap-ass, ugly rooms. Who wouldn't want to see a $300 room by Gen?
