Design Stars Among Us

A reader wrote in to tell us that her Uptown neighbor is one of the contestants on the current season of HGTV's Design Stars. Uptown resident Karl Sponholtz is one of the twelve competitors.

You can read Karl's official HGTV bio here, and see some clips of his design work here.

We wish Karl the best of luck on the competition, and think it's great to see an Uptowner represented on national TV.

You can also see some of Karl's work on his website. Maybe he can transform your living space.

UU Note: Another reader wrote us to let us know that contestant Kevin Grace is also an Uptown resident. Who knew that Uptown was the interior design mecca?

  1. Being on Design Star was a fantastic experience for me! I'm an architect in Chicago and I specialize in historic preservation. The rich architectural history in our neighborhood is one of the reasons I love being an Uptown resident.
