Project Runway: New Digs

Check out the new digs!

Starts tonight on Lifetime at 10 et/pt, and they are back in NYC.

I've missed you Tim!

About the apartments, in case you were wondering:

Where: Atlas NYC

Who: The production designer is Katie Abiad-De Luca. This is what she has to say about the new designs:

The designer notes how she wanted to create something unique, sophisticated and fun, all while stretching the budget and keeping in mind how things look on camera. “The design approach for the interiors of the Project Runway cast housing is not so different from the design philosophy of the competition itself,” she says.

Fans will notice some differences in the apartment interiors this season. For example, instead of wallpaper, Abiad-De Luca added dimension to the room with wood trim, which also created colorful patterns on the wall. In addition, she took plain, square carpet tiles, cut them into new shapes and reattached them to create a more dynamic, interesting pattern. A welcomed new addition to the apartments this season are the vanities in the girls’ rooms. “Every season the apartments are filled to the rim with 3 to 4 contestants with one to two bathrooms to get ready for their long days (on camera!). This time we set up an actual area for them to put on their makeup and do their hair,” Abiad-De Luca says, noting that vanities were created from a wall mounted shelf installed between two dressers, giving it a built-in look, “and then were topped off with a cute dot pattern with some stickers and spray frost.”
