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.
