House Hunters Renovation: Look for me on HGTV this Saturday!

Some of you know this already and I apologize in advance for the re-telling.

This summer I received a surprising (and quite wonderful) invitation from an HGTV production company to be featured as a designer for their show House Hunters Renovation.  Naturally, I accepted, and was assigned to a cute couple (and their new home).

It was fast paced and incredibly fun – something about cameras and microphones directed at me and a space I designed did wonders for my ego and for a small moment, I felt quite important and incredibly interesting and it is all it’s cracked up to be.   I wish that everyone could have a camera and sound crew follow them at their job just for a day.  I know what I do for a living is a bit superfluous and I realize that me placing a vase a certain way in a home isn’t going to change anyone’s world, but my ego and I enjoyed every moment of it.

The episode is named “Engaged in a Renovation” (Season 12, Episode 10) and it airs on HGTV this Saturday, December 2nd at 8:00 MT (check your local listings).  Look for me wearing jewel tones (evidently they look better on TV) and talking rapidly at the adorable homeowners.  I had a blast doing this and it should be a fun episode.  After it airs, I’ll share some before and afters and let you in on the experience and yes, I’ve already gone back to being a normal woman.  That “tv feeling” only lasts so long.

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving break!  We road-tripped to Tucson, Arizona and had fun seeing the saguaros, Kartchner Caverns (I love caves) and Old Tucson Studios among a few other things.  We also had a chance to visit Meow Wolf’s House of Eternal Return which is something that surpassed the hype and is a must-see if you’re near Sante Fe, New Mexico.

  1. Loved the design. Very different. Noticed that they went over their original budget of $35K and spent $64K (screen shot of $19K over). American math 🙂
