About two years ago, I embarked on a new chapter in my design/media career and started my own editorial site, Decor Demon, which is kinda like a shelter magazine in blog-roll format.
As a result of my work on DecorDemon and a chance meeting with HGTV’s site director, Jillian, I was asked to start designing full-length remodeling projects for a new HGTV site called HGTVRemodels.com.
While I have been in hog heaven writing, designing, producing, directing, prop styling and hosting decorating-based online content here at HGTV, the stuff over on HGTVRemodels is a whole new world. Everything has a remodeling slant, whether it’s floor-and-window update or a total gut job.
Although I have about 12 more projects on my to-do list before the new year, I’ve already got some favorites that are up and live on the front page. They include my own design studio remodel, my former assistant’s texture-packed attic apartment and a stunning library for an Atlanta jewelry designer.
I’ve gotten quite a few emails from friends who’ve been checking out the site daily for renovating ideas. Just like that Kevin Costner movie and its flag football field (that’s the right sport, right?), HGTV has built a beautiful sister site and the people continue to come.
