Any woman who loves decorating, design and/or home staging watches lots of television shows of the experts showing us the latest trends, what’s in – what’s out, and they keep us up-to-date with the industry. You don’t have to be a professional to enjoy watching these shows – they’re fun, educational and entertaining. None more so for me than WNetwork’s Love It or List It! with Hilary Farr and David Visentin. One of my serious pet peeves with David’s listings is that they are almost NEVER STAGED and they look terrible! Hilary’s work is so remarkably incredible – tasteful, stylish, functional and with special touches of added value to the home seller/owner.
We all have our favourite television personalities and favourite shows and over the years I have enjoyed designers like Debbie Travis, Steven & Chris, Jane Lockhart, Candice Olsen, Sarah Richardson, etc. It’s such a treat when these tv personalities come to town and present at Home & Garden and design shows. It’s even more of a treat when you get to meet them in person.
Last week I spent several minutes hogging time with Hilary Farr because I admire her design ability, her people skills, her determination, her confidence and the fact as she says ” she loves giving her clients the ‘home’ that speaks to them and meets their needs.” I can relate to that. We are fortunate to have such talented women designers creating more beautiful spaces one home at a time.
