The Lettered Cottage on The Design Network

So, remember that kitchen I told you we were redesigning? Well, we’ve been documenting the whole makeover on video too, and I can’t wait to share it with you online soon! Long story short- a couple of months ago, I got an email from the folks at The Design Network and after a few fun emails, and one very inspiring conference call- I decided to give it a whirl!

The Lettered Cottage Show | The Design Network

I signed on to produce five episodes between now and the end of January. My first episode (the kitchen makeover) will be uploaded to on October 1st, and man was it a blast to put together! Partly because re-doing rooms is one of my favorite things to do, and partly because I got to work with the sweetest gang around. My incredible hubby and our super-talented friend, Billy, tackled all the filming, lighting, graphic design and video editing duties, and Billy’s wife, Suzanne, helped me clean & organize the kitchen. (They’re the same Billy & Suzanne from this post– which makes this partnership extra fun!) Brian the Carpenter knocked all the carpentry projects out of the park, and to make matters even more memorable, the kitchen we worked on belongs to our mutual friends, Tommy & Shelley. They received  some unfortunate real estate-related news right before we started the makeover, but they decided to turn lemons into lemonade, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to fix up their kitchen with them over the past few weeks!

The Design Network

The Design Network is an innovative broadband network all about home décor and interior design, so you don’t have to have a TV to watch their shows. Any device that’s connected to the internet will do! Their goal is to entertain, inspire, and instruct viewers all around the world, and I am super excited to be a part of their 2013 Fall line-up. They’ll be announcing all their other new series in the next week or two, and I can’t wait to see what  all the other new hosts have been working on, too!

I’ll post another reminder update about my kitchen episode the day before it goes live, but if you’d like to subscribe (for free) to, just head over there and they’ll email you every time a new episode is uploaded. And for those who have time to check out my kitchen episode in a couple of weeks- I hope you enjoy the makeover as much as we enjoyed creating it!
