Fans of cable TVs mega-hit Trading Spaces know the rules: Two sets of homeowners, each helped full-time by a designer and part-time by a carpenter, swap houses and dive into a frenzied, two-day redo of a designated room. They have $1,000 apiece to pull off the jobno peeking at the other teams work until time is up. But theres more to reality TV than meets the viewers eye. This book tells all, including the actual number of days and off-camera supporting players needed to dramatize just one hour of on-air excitement and tension. This book is like a backstage pass for Trading Spaces groupies. Theyll read juicy biographical tidbits about quirky cast members, as well as design dos and donts. Bold graphics and splashy photography show off myriad styles: country kitsch, classic with a hint of modern, contemporary and sleek, rustic comfort, Euro chic, and even the outrageously weird.
