Oldham mentors contestants on Bravos home decorating reality series Top Design, and insists that a big design budget doesnt necessarily equal a stylish outcome.
He explains, Its an old-fashioned notion that style has to do with money. Ive seen rich affairs and homes with horrible taste!
Instead, Oldham says good design depends on creativity, uniqueness, and individual style, and believes living spaces should reflect peoples personalities.
Hes come across the worst design catastrophes at chain hotels and restaurants, where he often shakes his head at what couldve been.
Oldham says, Its always tragic when you see a design and know there are better choices out there.
He believes Top Design raises the bar for home decor and will show everyday folks how to design in style without breaking the bank.
Season two of Top Design premieres tomorrow (Sep. 3) on Bravo.
