Hi everyone! We're watching the first epi of Summer Home at Karen Sealy's studio in Toronto! You can tune in too on HGTV Canada right now!
Karen arrived a few minutes ago and we're all chatting about how authentic all the trials and design tribulations are on the show! Karen: "I'd arrive on location and the contractor would say, 'Karen, we have a problem,' and I would say, Wait! Don't tell me! Tell me on camera!"
So this is real design DRAMZ! ;)
There's Karen in her studio!! See the moment we caught on camera? *tear*
Karen's beautiful outdoor set up outside her studio in Toronto... Mmmmm Summer!
We'll post more photos! It's amazing!
So, Karen's right beside me -- any questions?
Love piping... Best solution for a relaxed and tailored look simultaneously
@Alison, Karen says: "Declutter! You can have a sale of all the stuff you gather and make some money for new stuff ;)"
@Sue, Karen: "Trends from the runways, including cruisewear, resortwear, fun prints that can go from outdoor in!"
@Nicole, there'll be more tips on the subject on HGTV.ca!
Karen's in flipflops today!
Karen says she and the crew pretty much lived up north! In cheap motels.. ahaha
Karen: "I feel like I was away at summer camp! Sad to go..."
My fave! I've blogged about the store several times
The floors in Karen's studio are heated polished concrete, btw
Simon the son of this family helped with the reno but the rest of the fam didn't see a thing until the reveal...
Karen is making a cute face, cringing watching herself on camera...
