While it's not technically summer until June 21 this year, our summer TV season kicks off Monday, May 31 with new shows, episodes and seasons. Let's get into, shall we?
Design School: Premiering Tuesday, June 1 at 8pm ET
Design School is the first ever docu-design series that explores the big hopes, designer dreams and oversized egos of a group of talented design students creating their portfolios as they prepare to make their mark in the professional world of interior design. The stakes are high and the work is emotionally charged, as the field of interior design is both incredibly competitive and highly subjective. Being a successful professional is equal parts artist, therapist and entrepreneur, and the superlab at the Design School puts all those to the test. Anything less than “design excellence” is not going to cut it.
Kirstie's Homemade Home: Premiering Saturday, June 5 at 9am ET
Location Location Location’s Kirstie Allsopp transforms a dilapidated country cottage into the ultimate “homemade” home in the brand new series, Kirstie’s Homemade Home and she's on a mission to change the way we furnish and decorate property. Journeying into the world of craft and homemaking featuring old and new, handmade and homemade, antique and bespoke, Kirstie attempts to prove that homemade beats mass produced designs every time. In a dilapidated farmhouse on the North Devon coast ripe for renovation, Kirstie shows how buying wonderful, unique, quality items will not only add character but can be handed down to future generations.
