the title is a false promise
There are some basic ideas in the show that are not bad. The episodes are short and they show many different locations. The show doesn't have a host and that's not a problem, since the house owners tell the whole story. The mix of three different locations each episode and the focus on one interior under construction is pleasant and relieve monotony.
Unfortunately the way of story telling is a bit too dramatic and superficial. As soon as you get the feeling to know the place, the owners and the idea of the interior the show moves on to the next site. Real interior design specialised knowledge is a rare commodity. All in all I got the feeling that the special characteristic of all objects are the owners obsessions. The interior is very often just a way to express their very unusual preferences. Living in a garage with your cars around, living in pink, living with cats, living within a skate park. Yes, those interiors are unusual and sometimes funny, but very often cheap and not well done as well, and especially not amazing all the time. Even more misleading is the german title, that says "genius interior design". The interiors have nothing to do with neither genius nor design.
I enjoyed the show about extraordinary homes way more. Those are created by real architects and the host explains the vision and the general idea of the houses concept. Since they focus also on the interior, I prefer that show to learn something about it.
To conclude, this show is ok, but not what I expected when I read the title. It's more entertainment than a real scientific documentary.
