I am so excited to have been asked to be a part of the LX.TV – NBC Universal ”Open Houses” series! You can catch the episode on which I will be featured next Sunday, September 12th at 10:30 AM CST. This “Designer Living” segment is a unique opportunity for designers to welcome viewers into their homes on a virtual (televised) open house tour. I myself know that I am always excited to see what goes on behind the scenes in a designer’s own personal world. I will be taking viewers throughout the various spaces of my home, showcasing my favorite pieces, explaining how my design aesthetic is reflected in my own space and giving tips on how you can translate your own personality into designing your own living space. Designing for yourself is most challenging, for there are so many fabrics, furnishings, design objects and artifacts plus sooooo many amazing artists work to choose from at your disposal. I can’t tell you how many times I have been sourcing for a client during my many travels and find something that I MUST have. So in essence, my home is a reflection of my very favorite pieces from my excursions all over the world. Designing for yourself is extremely rewarding- and the best part is that there is only one person to convince as to what are the best design decisions!
LX.TV NBC airs in a variety of different cities, and “Open Houses” therefore features designers from across the country. While my segment will be airing on television at LX.TV NBC Chicago, it will also be airing simultaneously across the country. My son in Boston has no excuse not to watch My oldest daughter, traveling in Europe will have to settle for Tivo. For now, check out the link to LXTV Chicago, the place to go for life and style seekers of the Windy City!
