At Home with Candice

Divine Design? This week I caught up on some gossip about celebs and designer alike in the latest issue of People Magazine. That’s right, HGTV’S Divine Designer, Candice Olsen, was featured in a two page spread about how design takes place in her own home. Check it out…

Like her style, love her ideas about the importance of durability in a home where a husband, two children and a dog occupy.

The Astro turf rug, the animal ottoman, the metallic painted wall and the white oak hand carved animal heads all played an integral part in making the room such a success.
