Come on guys, recognize the new star now. Stan the Man has the talent BUT he also has the skill to implement. Hes a great presence on TV and everytime I watch, I am drawn to him. A true designer is not "taught", its a gift. He screams vison of design. Good luck Stan the Man!
Stan was one of the best, forward-thinking designers on the show. Sure, his designs do not fit HGTV audience, because very few people are bold enough to implement his suggestions. I loved the kitchen, I think this kitchen should be showcased in the best international design magazines. Loved the table with the vase too. People put large vases on the tables all the time, they have no problem sitting around it. I am sure Stanley would find the audience that can truly appreciate his progressive design thinking and taste. Would have loved to see him on the show a bit longer. He is also one of the hard-working, likable guys, who gets things done and can compromise.
