Congratulations Design Crisis, You Have The Top Design

The polls are closed and Thank You, Thank You everyone for showing up to the debates.  We have collectively been able to come up with bachelor pads that are far more stunning than the sad-sac-panty-keeper-on-ers than the ones on Top Design (and don't give me no jive talk about budget and time, top designers, you're supposed to be the very best, hence the television cameras following you around).  The democratic effort here at DC headquarters brings a tear to my eye, and for that, I give several awards. To Anna from Door 16, I award a lovely crimson satin sheet set for her nomination, the Portland Apartment (also for her funny comment about the (p)anty word, sorry to keep saying it Anna):

yes, this pad is certain to bring the undergarments of an entire generation right down to the well polished floor.

To my East-Coast Buddy, Woodley Park Zoo, I award a stunning black lacquer living room group for pointing my Top Design weary eyes in the direction of Dave's New Place at AT:

Apparently some looney-toon thought this pad had too many vignettes.  Maybe, but I wouldn't be scared to shower in that b. pad, so, winner.

The next big winner is our own miss Erin.  Erin wins her very own Fredrick Hart glass booby sculpture for showing us David Netto's apartment:

Yes, yes, this will do just fine.  Are you taking notes, Top Designers?  If so, I might consider writing about you next week.  But you NEED to study.

And FINALLY, the winner of our gorgeous framed lamborghini poster is Raina the keyboard wielding design goddess from If the Lampshade Fits for her nomination of, not one, but TWO stunning b. pads.  Single gentlemen and TDers alike, observe:

The home of Alexander Verbeek 

and the home of an unnamed manhattan bachelor:

Excellent work everyone.  You have all made  mommy so so proud, I just might give you your own TV show next season.  We'll see. 

I can not live with your design, Top Design

I tossed and turned all night last night, I was just so torn over my Top Design recap:  I owe it to them, they come back every week for it..... oh but the show is so boring and the pictures of the rooms are just going to muck up your pretty pretty blog... well there was that hideous DECOUPAGE wall in the bachelor pad.  Yes, yes I can write about how a team of 3 adults thought it would be appropriate to adorn the walls of a 23-year-old-frat-dude's apartment with faux archival botany prints then cover them with modge podge.  Oh, but what will I say after that?  And I still REALLY don't want to post those pictures. Then, in the crisp clear light of the morning dawn, I realized:  we shall have a compromise.  In the spirit of Top Design, we will be having a smallish (read:  the only prize is the glory that comes with my big ups) contest.  Last nights TD challenge was to decorate a bachelor pad.  So, what say you, can you find me some good bachelor pads?  Link to them in the comments or post them on your own blogs.  I want to see some hot man decor porn.  If you all play nice I'll do a recap post with the swanky pads.  Winner gets my undying love and a framed lamborghini poster*

I'll go first:

I'm sure Patrick Bateman killed all his dates so he could stay single forever and rule this apartment.
