Small Space, Big Style. The Reunion Tour!

The episode I taped many, many moons ago of HGTV's Small Space, Big Style is airing again (since I don't watch TV anymore, thanks to reader Sparkie for cluing me in). The good news is that after nine hours of taping and feeling incredibly awkward and uncomfortable in front of a camera, is that they thankfully cut most of it out and managed mostly to show the apartment! Whew! And Cooper's in a lot of the show, too, which was so sweet to see. What's really funny, is that practically nothing in the apartment looks a thing like this anymore! I taped the show so long ago, that everything has been redecorated since then. I'm not sure of the airtime for the episode, but if you'd like to check it out - check your local listings for the Small Space, Big Style episode entitled Car Port Chic (Episode HSSBS-508). Oh, and I look way better than this in person! Ha! Seriously, I beg of you, please just ignore the me part of the show!

Oooh! Congratulations Victoria, that's so exciting! Would love if it was available to view somewhere on the net.

How sweet for you that Coop starred in it, and that it made you (mostly) happy. Have a good weekend.

Sounds wonderful , Victoria . I have the same question as Zee : any chance to watch it somewhere on the net ?
I am sure that seeing Coop in this video , although it made you sad , it probably enabled you to mesure once more how happy he was , what a great life he had with you .That's important .
Hugs from Brazil .

For those of your readers - like me - who live in Canada, HGTV Canada is airing your episode on
Sunday, November 25 at 1:00 AM EST, and for those who don't stay up that late, they're repeating it on
Wednesday, November 28 at 5:00 PM EST. At least that's what it says on their website schedule!
I'll be watching!
And congrats, Victoria!!

You are such a DIVA! Wow, I LOVE your home...if I ever need a life change (i'm in Boston, hehehe...) and you want to move, Just give a call sister :)

I have SSBS on "series record" so imagine my delight - sitting in my jammies, having my morning coffee the day after Thanksgiving and tuning in to The Episode! Thanks for the walk-through. I never realized Rico S. was such a ham!

Rowena said...

I saw it! It was great to hear the voice behind the words and I looked for Cooper in every shot. Great job!

Ana said...

Just like Sparkie, I have SSBS on series record to on my dvr, it was awesome to see one of my favorite bloggers and Cooper too, you can tell just how loved he was/is.


if you go here, it's Amazon's answer to itunes and they have season 1 of ssbs, hopefully soon they'll have all of them.

no mac users though, which sucks for me because I'm so ready to have this show on dvd.

I just stumbled on the show and as soon as I saw Rico I knew it was your place. You looked great and so did the house!

Victoria,
I happened across your blog today and what a delight! And to discover that you were featured on my favorite show... now I'm going to have to sit down and watch it again (I tape all episodes). Your home is charming and your blog is delightful! I too am a flickr fan and look forward to checking out all your pix. Best wishes for your holiday season.

whistlepunch said...

Tiffany said...

Congrats! What kind of paint and color did you use in your living room??

sfgirlbybay said...

thanks so much to mike, who sent me a dvd copy! i can watch coop whenver i like now!

tiffany - it's just white that the landlord painted, so i'm not sure. these pix make it look pale pink though as they are screen shots from the show.

perfectbound said...

I just saw the episode last week! I thought, is that her? That doesn't look like her apartment though... just so show it really does look different now!

Robin Z said...

This episode will be repeated March 27, 2008 6:00 PM ET/PT

Samantha said...

'Nuff with the insecurities, eh! Your place is as divine as you are, my dear. Victoria, you are gorgeous, charming, beautiful, and incredibly gifted. Own it. And be proud. (:

sfgirlbybay said...

samantha - i know, i know. but you try it sometime - it's hard to be on camera!! trust me! and thank you for such kind words!

Nathalie said...

Would be brilliant if you could find a way to upload it here, would so love to see it !

Stephanie said...

wouah, I want to see it ! Is it possible to put it on Youtube?

Have a great day !!

emilyabigail said...

hello! i love your blog so very much. i have been reading it for a little while now & thought now was just as good of a time as any to say hello.

also, i LOVE small spaces, big style! how exciting that you got to be apart of it. from the photographs, i can see why they would choose you. i would definitely look out for your episode!

sfgirlbybay said...

Oh please no YouTube! I don't know how to do that, and I really just would prefer it stay on the old Tube!

Orange Pattern said...

Yay, how fun. I LOVE that you're not into being on camera. I love you for that.

cindy k said...

i just saw it today and it was great!

Monica Yvette said...

Hey, I saw that show tonight! Cool place. Rico is a handsome devil.

danielle said...

i dvred it and love it!!

so inspirng for me and my first place!

Cindy said...

I watched it last night and it was great. I've seen the sneak peaks into your place on other blogs (apartment theraphy? can't remember).

I think it would be strange having a film crew in, but also a neat way to archive what your house looked like at a certain point in time.

I love the style of your place, especially your "headboard"... very SF.
