Nothing I like more than to see one of my favorite contestants win a competition-based reality show. After watching Sam get booted & leave Top Chef in 3rd place, felt Bravo owed me one. And they delivered! Matt, the 32-year old designer from Chicago, has the top design after beating Carisa in a loft design challenge. The best part was that they got to design the 1700-foot loft for themselves. Part of the reason Matt was able to clinch the title was the design of his 4 year old daughter's room. Congratulations, Matt! We'll be looking forward to seeing your work in Elle Decor magazine.
