Dwell on Design
Had a great time at the Dwell On Design Show in LA last night and hanging out in the HGTV Lounge. HGTV is launching a new Professionals Network that we've been invited to be part of. Here I am with Jeremy Tilley, Director of Trade Relations. We had a great chat about the impact HGTV has had on the whole home design industry. Much of it terrific, raising awareness and creating a boon of interest from consumers across the country, but some of it misleading - in that (surprise) you can't remodel your house in a weekend for $5,000. This is where their new Professionals Network comes in -HGTV wants the audience to understand more fully how designers create spaces that are as functional as they are fabulous, while speaking to the details that define the spaces. Getting to share the process & bigger picture and be part of educating consumers, I said, "Absolutely - I would love to be part of that"!
