Home Heist

A good friend of mine was recently selected for a home makeover through HGTV (Canada’s) new show “Colin & Justin’s Home Heist“.

The show is hosted by British home improvement cornerstones Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan, famous for a variety of shows including the crazily popular “How Not to Decorate“.

The premise of Home Heist is homes where ‘crimes against design’ have been committed by their owners are ‘heisted’ by Colin & Justin to right the wrongs and teach the owners a thing or two along the way.

So, Malcolm, a single fashion designer from Mississauga, Ontario (Canada) was selected and had his townhouse made over. The makeover included total demolition and renovation of his living/dining room, kitchen, and two bedrooms. His makeover was chronicled in Episode 2, entitled “It Ain’t Easy Being Green” which premiered on HGTV Canada on Tuesday, October 9th at 9PM EDT.

How’d it turn out? The makeover was amazing. All four rooms are great, and Malcolm loves the result (even the white walls…. watch the episode to see what that’s all about). And, how about the episode itself – is that the real Malcolm? Pretty much… I think it was a fair and (mostly) flattering representation of who and what Malcolm is all about. And besides some great TV exposure and a cool home makeover, he had loads of fun in the process – I doubt Colin & Justin had dropped their pants on TV before meeting Malcolm!

Be sure to check out the show, especially “It Ain’t Easy Being Green“. It screens Tuesday’s at 9PM Eastern on HGTV (Canada) with replays on Saturday’s at 9PM and Sunday at 2PM. “It Ain’t Easy Being Green” will replay this Saturday (October 13th) at 9PM EST, and Sunday (October 14th) at 2PM EST. Be sure to check the most complete episode schedule.

Want to contact Malcolm? Post here (or e-mail me) and I’ll be sure the message gets to him. Otherwise, a little creative Facebook searching will track him down (hint – look for Colin & Justin, and Malcolm won’t be far).
