Known for her Southern charm and cooking, Food Network star Paula Deen is dropping by HGTV Design Star next week to judge the Dream Kitchen Challenge. You may know her best for her many mouthwatering cookbooks and the Food Network show Paula's Home Cooking, but this Southern lady also has a knack for home design, particularly when it comes to comfortable yet stylish furnishings.
Dream Kitchen Challenge
Who better than Paula Deen to be a guest judge on HGTV Design Star for the Dream Kitchen Challenge? Deen joins Genevieve Gorder and Vern Yip to judge the remaining four finalists as they design kitchens that represent the country's four most popular kitchen layouts and design styles. In addition, David Bromstad will ask each finalist to host a web video that teaches viewers how to make the most of their kitchen design.
Paula Deen's style is all about comfort
Forget the pretentious, look-pretty-but-lack-functionality home style. Deen is all about comfort. On her show, Paula's Home Cooking, she welcomes you into her warm and wonderful kitchen to share her down home meals. With her furniture line, Paula Deen Home, she invites you to sit down, relax, and enjoy yourself and your company.
Deen writes on her home furnishings website PaulaDeenHome.com, "Inspired by the way I live at my home in Savannah, these pieces are designed to be more than just pretty to look at, but easy to live with, too. So put your feet up and settle in for a while. You're home now."
Tune in to HGTV Design Star
We wonder if her Southern style and affinity for comfort will be a strong influence in her role as guest judge on HGTV Design Star for the Dream Kitchen Challenge. Join us as we sit back and watch the action-packed show on Monday, August 8, 9pm ET/PT.
