Michael Stribling is Our HGTV Design STAR!


Update July 17, 2008 – “How do I contact Michael to decorate my home?” You can reach Michael Stribling at http://www.michaelstriblinginteriors.com.

Did you know we have another “STAR” in our community? ANOTHER College Station resident is being featured on national television. Michael Stribling is one of the eight contestants on this season’s HGTV Design Star a reality competition design show. He is the youngest person to compete on Design Star!

HGTV says that he “attributes his success as a designer to his fresh and youthful approach to style.”

Michael’s approach to design is like a breath of fresh air. He actually listens to the client and can take their feelings and style and translate that into something beautiful. He is not interested in spending the most money or making a project “in his image”. He truly is interested in what the CLIENT wants even if they aren’t sure what that is yet. Through his creativity he can take a small boring space and make it look and feel larger. I’ve seen him take a small kitchen and with a little “out of the box thinking” turn it into an expansive area for entertaining.

With Michael, no project is too big and no one can find a designer that gives more of himself to the project.

Michael is the son of Danny and Linda Stribling of College Station, Texas.

Watch for the Design Star premiere on June 8, 2008 at 8pm Central and ENJOY!

    I have been a big fan of my dear friend Linda Stribling’s son, Michael Stribling for years. His talents exceed so many and he truly deserves this honor. I hope that the entire Bryan-College Station Community will join me in watching Michael every Sunday starting June 8th on HGTV. Design Star is one of America’s most watched television shows and right here in Aggieland our born and raised star Michael Stribling is going to make us all proud! Congratulations little brother- I am rooting for you!

  9. Kay Teykl says:

    Michael I was so excited to see you featured in the Houston Chronicle. I missed the June 8 show but will be watching every Sunday evening. Terry and I are so impressed that you have grown to be such a talented young man!

  10. Susan Hilton says:

    Wow Michael Stribling looked GREAT last night! It was wonderful to see him recover from freezing up. We have ALL had problems like that and he did a GREAT job recovering!

  11. Tina Teykl Parish says:

    Oh my goodness, Michael Stribling is all grown up! I used to babysit for the Striblings many years ago, so it is a blast from the past to see the towheaded little boy now as a handsome and creative young man. I will be watching every show and cheering to Michael to win. Good luck!!!

  12. Wow, congratulations Michael. We will be watching from Plano. What an exciting opportunity.

  13. LT says:

    I would have to disagree that he is the new design star. I don’t like his attitude – like it or not he did railroad Tracee. I didn’t like his interview nor his style.

  14. Susan Hilton says:

    Hey LT – Guess you didn’t see how GREAT Micheal did on the show tonight!!! You may not like his style but the judges sure did!

  15. Olga Dominguez says:

    I LOVE MICHAEL!!!! I mett him a little over a year ago and he is amazing. Full of energy and his talent shines. I watched Michael tonight and he continues to amaze me. Best wishes!!!

  16. I thought Michael was amazing on the show I’m so disappointed with Sundays results I wish him the best of luck.

  17. Joey says:

  18. Joey says:

  19. Shae Cummings says:

    Michael…don’t give up. You have great talent and eventually, it will be recognized and rewarded.
    I believe your key is Vern Yip. Just a hunch.
    Remember, many people fail to succeed because they fail to continue their dream. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
    Hang in there; I am thinking that there is more for you to come. Too many people love your boyish charm and innovative design concepts.
    Keep the faith.

  20. Geri Plimpton says:

    Ok Michael, lets get to work. I need to enlarge my master bedroom and add a “WoW” bathroom.
    Can you help?

  21. Susan Hilton says:

    Michael – They were SO WRONG to “cancel your show”!!! YOU were the star! HGTV Design Star is boring without you!!!

  22. Last week I dropped by this site and as usual great content and ideas. Love the lay out and color scheme. Is it new? Well I really really like it. Email me the theme at [email protected].

  23. Hello-
    Great Looks!
    My husband & I have a beautiful showroom for doors,windows, shutters in Rockport,TX.
    We have a 2200sqft loft above with an extra 1380sgft of veranda.
    Have no idea what to do..it is plumbed for a kitchen, has all slate flooring,wood windows & doors, beamed ceiligs. Do you ever need a blank open space for “What can be done” like on design TV shows? If so it is yours to do with it what you may.
    Your style is wonderful.
    It could also be an ideal spot for another location for Michael Stribling, Yea!
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    aiff right now, and make certain your songs have been in the correct order by placing an 01 etc.

    Technology and engineering methods are constantly
    evolving. Remember when video cassettes first became available,
    how exciting it turned out to watch great movies right inside the comfort of
    one’s own home.

    This can help you only look for vacuums that meet this price criterion and
    you will not be tempted to look at a vacuum that is out of your price range.
    As can be seen from the above applications, cleaners
    of this type have a wide variety of uses. Try to
    find brands which are highly regarded, instead of the higher-end models which will cause you to spend a fortune.
