Local interior designer Jason Dunn is about to go to battle on HGTV’s brand new show Design Wars. The Vinings resident is the co-owner of 2 Gays & A Design along with his partner of seven years, Michael Peters.
Design Wars pits three designers against each other in a remodeling battle at a residential home, with the winner chosen by the family. Dunn got word from HGTV on Monday about making the cut after nearly three months of phone interviews, Skype interviews and in-person interviews.
He hasn’t received word yet on an official shoot date but he’s been told it will be sometime in June or July. The Design Wars team will be in Atlanta for two to three months filming with different designers and families.
“It’s all been sort of surreal because our company has only been around for less than two years,” Dunn told Fenuxe. In that time 2 Gays have built up a solid following with a diverse client list.
Dunn is nervous but excited about all the attention the company has received. “There’s a lot going on and we’re very proud of it,” he says. “But yeah, there’s a lot of nerves involved with it too. We never thought that we’d be in this situation two years ago.”
