Beautiful homes, great hosts
26 March 2018 | by jgclarkeSee all my reviews

I couldn't disagree more with some of these reviewers who are saying that one or both of the hosts are annoying.

I really enjoyed this show _because_ of Caroline and Piers, not despite them. Caroline plays the perfect "everywoman" role, representing most of us viewers who aren't trained architects, and her often excited responses are perfectly reasonable and on-tone given how unique and amazing these homes are. Herr reactions are fun, genuine, and do well to ground what are multi-million-dollar structures and creations that defy any traditional sense of living.

Piers, meanwhile, is an architect who clearly appreciates the art of architecture while honing in on what makes the buildings truly work for their purposes rather than simply existing to exist. His explanations are clear and succinct while being informative and intelligent.

The chemistry between the two hosts is great, the visuals are fantastic, and the segments are timed just right to provide a great mix of eye candy with information.

If you're tired of brain dead reality shows but don't want to feel like you're going to design school, this show is a wonderful mix of smarts, true appreciation of art and design, and is an all around joy to watch.
