These interior design stars have me starry-eyed!

These designers are famous for a reason! Their knowledge, creativity and experience have me star-struck and taking notes!!!

Dee Dee Eustace | HGTV Canada

She's brilliant, beautiful and business savvy. No wonder I'm fascinated by Dee Dee's career! Balancing a business, tv show, partnership with Scotties facial tissue, AND a family, this woman is incredible!!!

Martyn Lawrence Bullard | Martyn Lawrence Bullard Design

When I close my eyes and I dream at night, I see Martyn's designs! Opulent doesn't begin to describe the spaces this man creates! My ultimate fantasy, my pie-in-the-sky, my fantasia would be to live in a home designed by this master of design!

Candice Olson | The Candice Olson Collection

I have to admit, if you take a look around my home, you will see "Candice" everywhere! An area rug she designed, her favourite Benjamin Moore colours on my walls and her "Family Spaces" book on my coffee table! Her fun loving spirit and beautiful designs are awe inspiring! A true talent in every sense of the word!

Chris Hyndman and Steven Sabados | Steven and Chris

Upon winning a nation wide colour contest, I was given a free flight to anywhere in Canada. I chose to fulfill a dream of mine and go to a live taping of the Steven and Chris show in Toronto! The practical tips and down to earth design advice these boys dispense is invaluable! Now that I'm back home in Edmonton, I continue to check in on "my boys" daily for their wonderful words of wisdom!!!

Sarah Richardson | Sarah Richardson Design

I think of Sarah as a triple threat! From trends to makeovers and Q & A's. She does them all, and does them all better than well!!! I love how she can design an entire kitchen based on the inspiration found in a tea towel! Now that's motivational!!! Thank you Sarah for helping me to see the beauty in even the smallest things!

Hilary Farr | Hilary Farr Design

Hilary is the master of managing unrealistic expectations and impossible budgets! Her matter-of-fact way of dealing with difficult clients is an art in itself! I admire her technique and have put a few of them in my back pocket! Hilary is a confident and professional lady who takes no guff...and I LOVE it!

HGTV Design Star

In design school you are given challenging scenarios: Big families living in tiny spaces, couples with completly opposing tastes..... The competitors on HGTV Star are given the same type of demanding projects, WITH the added pressure of a TV audience! I love the innovative solutions this show squeezes out of these talented contestants! Gets my creative juices flowing!

Jane Lockhart | Jane Lockhart Interior Design in Toronto

Jane is my colour guru! Embarrassing to admit, but what I have learnt from Jane's show - Colour Confidential rivals what I learnt in my colour theory courses from the University! (I could have saved a lot of $$$ on tuition!) Watching Jane work her magic is the best kind of homework!! This girl knows her stuff, and I am privileged to be learning from the best!

Jillian Harris | Jillian Harris Design Inc.

Talented, pretty and full of ambition! Jillian has been inspiring me since before I went to school to become a designer! I truly admire her down to earth approach and pure genius designs!

Keri Sanders | Design Happens

Not interested in big box store stuff and cookie cutter things? Consider yourself different and unique? Then Keri Sanders is the girl to follow! I love the innovative and different products she features on her blog! The "where did you get that" kind of stuff that everyone wants to own, but doesn't know where to find! Follow Keri and you'll never be bored!!!
