"Colour Confidential"

While I definitely enjoy my HGTV, they have only one show that I must watch weekly – “Colour Confidential.”

Jane Lockhart is my design hero. Previously, she did the amazing series “Get Color,” and I’m happy to say the only difference between it and “Colour Confidential” is that this show takes place in Canada. Jane still busts out her customized color wheel each episode, and that’s when the magic happens.

I just love her designs – they are stylish yet realistic for everyday life.

  3. I just saw a great episode on Feb 6th (I think it was called "Debra's Basement"). Could you post the pics on your site?

    How do you get the pictures from the show?--(I'm so not a techie)

  5. I love this show!! I wish there was a way to watch it on-demand. It's on so early where I live, and I don't get home from work in time.

  6. Way back in 1999-2000, I was living in Edmonton, Alberta. I watched HGTV Canada. My favorite show back then was one that Jane Lockhart starred in with Jason Cass (http://www.hgtv.ca/ontv/titledetails.aspx?titleid=52342).
    It was the coolest show ever. They each did a new house in one of those 'cookie cutter' neighborhoods. and each episode was one room in the house.
    I wish they were still showing this series.

  7. Hi! I love her, too! I think her show is the best one for decorating there is!

    I wrote about her in this article: http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Best-Decorating-and-Real-Estate-Shows-on-TV

  8. I love the show too and so wish HGTV would run more episodes in a week. Once a week is NOT enough!

  9. I love this show, but I have a hard time keeping up with the changing times. I have a hard time watching it during the daytime and wish it was on in the evening.

  10. I don't know why HGTV took this show off the air; it was the best

    1. I agree! I'm so unhappy with HGTV because of this. Glad to see Jane and crew has such a big following! Bring back Colour Confidential!

    2. I agree. I've emailed them about this repeatedly, and they've never answered one single time making me lose interest and faith in HGTV altogether now.

  11. They aren't showing her show in the US anymore, and that's just plain sad. Jane teaches much through the use of her color wheel and knowledge. I've emailed HGTV repeatedly to no avail. They don't even answer my emails.

    I'm not seeing Sarah Richardson anymore either. Why not?

    And while David Bromstadt rocks and I could watch him every day, if I see one more Moroccan themed room or fabric with Genevieve, I'll vomit.

  12. I find it hard to believe but one negative comment was posted so i hope mine is I find myself watching this show wondering how fast some of her clients get their rooms redone in normal colors. I've seen color combinations that I can't bear to look at on my TV let alone live with. The color combos simply make zero sense. When u watch other decorators I find myself imagining being in that room. The colors are ridiculous
