New HGTV Star?

On Sunday, April 21, 2013 Moorea auditioned for HGTV! They had a booth at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in New Orleans and are looking for fresh faces and ideas for shows. Moorea did a fantastic job with her 15-minute, on-camera interview; informative, articulate, and poised (says her mom.) She spoke about her passion for creating beautiful kitchens in any style that work well for pleasurable cooking and entertaining. She noted that people who can”t prepare a sit-down, four-course meal for twelve in two hours shouldn”t be kitchen designers because understanding work flow and ease in a kitchen is fundamental to good design. Her charm came through when she told a story about working with an architect ten years ago who was dismissive about her ideas because she looked “really young.” ; ) The best part was when the interviewer asked if she had an idea for a new HGTV show. Moorea said she envisions “HGTV meets the Food Network”: a kitchen is redesigned with cooking in mind and then the homeowners cook with the designer to show how the kitchen functions superbly for a dinner party with their favorite friends. As we left the booth, an HGTV staffer from the wings called out, “You did GREAT!”
