We just had the pleasure of watching long time AT reader and early AT:Chicago house tour participant on the new HGTV show, Rate My Space. It aired last night and thanks to tivo, we watched it during our lunch break today...
It's a room makeover show with a bit of a twist. The episode we just watched featured a couple who were not happy with the style of their living room. They'd chosen 3 rooms from the Rate My Space site as their inspiration rooms (this is where Kathryn comes in - as one of the inspirations). The shows designer, Angelo Surmelis, works elements from each of the three rooms into the redesign of the living room, which is then carried out and revealed in its entirety at the end of the half hour episode.
Kathryn's home provided inspiration specifically in the form of the large scale paintings hanging in her dining area (shown above). A camera crew came to Chicago to film Kathryn in her home speaking about the artwork and encouraging the couple on the upcoming redesign. She did a fabulous job - not a moment of stage fright to be seen.
Congratulations to Kathryn on being a decor inspiration!
