Candice's new show - Candice Tells All Sign In/Join

Designer Candice Olson delivers the awe-inspiring transformations we have come to expect, but this time she pulls back the curtain to get down to the basics of design. In Candice Tells All she shares the underlying design principles that can be applied to any space, revealing a home's true potential. This is Candice unplugged, as she deconstructs the design process and teaches us her rules in a fun and irreverent way.

Candice Tells All airs Sat. @ 8 p.m. ET

I like Candace's designs but where are the other design shows? I'm sick of House Hunters
and Selling New York.

I like the show but not as much as Sarah. The too large headboard and wrong sofa come across as poor planning not what you would expect from a top designer. She seems disorganized and not really in control of the project. Everyone knows that glitches occur on any project but this was only a bedroom, what would have happened in a kitchen if the appliances were too large or small or the countertops were mismeasured?

Completely agree with you, Paws. We all know there is more to it than her just throwing some things into bin and declaring "THIS is their new bedroom" the way she did on her last show. However, I really cannot believe that someone as experienced and savvy as Candice would make these kinds of mistakes. I'm just a little ol' small town decorator and I know better!

How can we find out the sources of her purchases?
I checked the Divine Design website but there were no links to this show for content.
I couldn't even find the before/after pictures on the HGTV website.
DH and I loved the pull down shades with the soft pattern on the episode HCTAL-104H
Thanks

All I want to know, is where is Chico and all the other regulars? I think I prefer her previous show.

I agree she has made some mistakes on this show but it probably has something to do with working with a new crew. I also miss chico and the gang but candice was always the star of the show. she just seemed to have more fun with the other crew than she does with this one which is a shame because they really seemed to be having fun and not just playing it up for the camera!

I just watched an episode where the fridge was too large to get through the door and the faucet was incorrect but the project mgr. didn't know that faucet was for another project? Seems like Candice is going backwards.
I also am extremely disappointed after watching these shows for years that there is no way to find out what materials she is using. We are supposed to like her ideas what cannot track down the suppliers.
Disappointing HGTV!

Love her designs; always classy. However, I do not like the new format of Candice Tells All. Not near as much fun as the Devine Design and crew. The format of visiting sights for inspiration has been done by another designer for the Discovery Channel a couple of years go.
Back to the old format please....miss Chico!
