The first rule of real estate is location, location, location — but what happens when a buyer’s only option in the right location is a house with horrible design and a clunky layout? Renovation, design and real estate pros Joanna and Chip Gaines say buy it — then fix it! Fixer Upper is the Texas couple’s new show coming to HGTV Thursday, April 24, at 11pm/10c. The network is excited to have their expertise on television — and, HGTV.com is thrilled to have Joanna as our newest guest editor. Welcome, Joanna!

As with last quarter’s guest editor, Nancy Fire, Joanna will be bringing her fun, expert commentary to Design Happens, adding insight to 2014 design and home remodeling trends throughout HGTV.com, and even taking over HGTV’s Instagram here and there.

As design director of HGTV HOME (HGTV’s product line), Nancy Fire is leading a team to produce stunning home decor that encompasses the looks and styles seen on HGTV and HGTV.com. If you’ve ever shopped HGTV HOME, then you’re familiar with Nancy’s remarkable attention to detail and her keen eye for what’s beautiful. It’s Nancy’s style and expertise that made the decision to choose her as our first ever HGTV.com guest editor a no-brainer. What exactly is the “HGTV.com guest editor?” Glad you asked!

This year, our team will be bringing in a few extra movers, shakers and visionaries who possess interesting perspectives on the world of design. We want these industry insiders to jump into the mix of everything we do here at HGTV.com. So, we asked Nancy if she’d be our first guest editor, and she happily agreed. Welcome, Nancy!

You may know her as a member of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but did you know that Melissa Gorga has created a home collection with Joss & Main? Her Home Italian Style collection is available until Sept. 23, and according to Melissa, it “embodies a mix of the Italian style with a modern twist.”

Melissa is no stranger to interior decorating, as she and her husband designed and decorated their large home together. And with her love for Italian design mixed with modern accents, she hopes her collection will give her fans a chance to imitate her style while bringing warmth and elegance to their own homes.
