I've got a GOOD one:

Why did she fight for Ryan so hard in the early episodes? He seemed like he didn't even LIKE design.

I wanna know who she'd let work with her, or work on HER house. Like, who would she hire for her company if she had to.

Basically, who was her favorite.

Did she really think Matt's rooms were interesting- her rooms are so colorful and exciting---

I think we all want to know about her clothes though!

what makes something a hot design, good design, interesting design, or - the winning design? What particular elements, in her mind, take something to the next level. I feel like a lot of the judges commentary was probably edited and then patched together so i'd like to have her reveal her thinking process, here.

um, who the hell STYLED her during the series?

some notable outfits and hair choices, though somewhat near interesting, were eye-rollingly awful. especially next to crisp, classic margaret.

1. Clothing/hair style choices on the show. What influenced the choices? Did she have a different theme for each episode? (I thought she was such a breath of fresh air on that show)

2. As a designer and potential employer what does she look for in a designer: talent, style (already developed), desire to learn, hard working, consistency (in work), GPA...

3. The heart or the money? Is she more likely to take a job that is giving her unlimited creative spectrum on a tight (tttttt) budget, or a straightforward job - "this is what I want you to do" type of job - with no budget.

What does her creative process look like when working on a project? Is it methodically planned or does it evolve?

And, what are her greatest influences at the moment?

I'd like to know what current trends she is most excited about and what style(s) she thinks will be the "next big thing" in interior design.

I agree with Jan C! While watching the show, I definitely have the utmost respect for her as an interior designer, but her sense of fashion is absolutely fearless. She's really become a new icon for me, so I want to know what inspires her personal style.

In her Modern Glamour book, she did a green tiled bathroom with some vintage faucets that looked like keg taps. Where does she find these things or does she outsource the design to a manufacturer? Very inspiring!

Kelly is fearless in everything that she does, and that reason is paramount in my affinity towards her! What's left to interior design if you don't take risks? Innovate? I love that she applies that to her own style, not just her projects. I think everyone needs to step out of themselves and try a lioness tease every once in a while!

In her Modern Glamour book she stated something about how fresh cut flowers are preferable to potted plants and that potted plants typically indicate a design flaw (I am paraphrasing). Does she ever think potted plants indoors are the correct choice?

i confess that i'd want to ask something about her personal look as well: i think that what she wears reflects some of the same bold eclecticism that people love so much in her design, but it's panned, while her interiors get raves. that's odd, no?

a question with that in mind, then, would be: what should a designer's appearance say to a client, if anything, about their interior aesthetic? does KW put herself together, both on "top design" and in general, with the intention of conveying something about her work?

I'd like to know more about her Playboy days as Kelly Gallagher. How she went from Miss Sept '94 centerfold into the world of interior design? She seems like the type to be open about her past and I've never heard her address this before. Thanks D*S!

I would love to know exactly where she gets her "Citrine Yellow" curtains/paint/upholstery.

As a designer that works primarily in custom design, I find it challenging to keep my own perspective and design sense intact in the final product. Different circumstances make it easier or more difficult to assert my perspective. I want to know what challenges her in keeping her vision intact - particularly on big projects (like her hotels) when so many voices must be considered. Or, is she at a point in her career when she no longer feels the need to compromise her vision (aside from practicality)?

kelly rocks and i love her. my questions: what was she like as a child? introverted? was she always drawn to vivid color and unique design, objects. what background was her family and what life style was she raised in?

thanks, tom in san francisco

I do like some of Kelly's design's but what is with that voice? Sounds rehersed. And yes, what is with the jazzy bright boots??
