This is a very proud moment to share some great news. ¬†How do real estate and real TV come together? ¬†That’s a story that starts a few years ago, and you can find introductory posts on this blog from July 2015 in a series about a custom home and the roads we traveled to reach those goals. ¬†Let’s fast forward!
Here’s a link to an audition that landed my little friend on TV and the house I designed for their family in the backdrop!
Next airing to see what I’m talking about is on the Food Network¬†January 9!
I can’t help but be proud to know that real estate and design had played a part in making changes in a young girl’s life that first encouraged her to express her creativity and now has launched her to recent TV stardom! ¬† ¬†On Tuesday, a local child who is parented by some amazing clients, won Food Network’s Chopped Junior episode for her tenacity in the kitchen, deft quick thinking and her ‘cuteness overload’. ¬† This child I’ve had the honor of watching grow and also saw how her parents set a goal to create a¬†home that fit them perfectly and held tight to that house dream which they are living. ¬†During the window in time that we had together we created a kitchen¬†that could be the hub for just about any family activity. ¬†The space where we considered every detail, was recently transformed into¬†a test ‘Chopped Junior’ kitchen for the audition and practice before the August filming. ¬†Their new home made just for them, blossomed into a place that their child could flourish, be encouraged to create and dream, as well as being easy to use for young ones. ¬† I couldn’t have explained it better than this article today featuring the newest Chopped Junior Champion¬†from the Richmond Times Dispatch. ¬†See also recent stories from Channel 6 and Channel 8. ¬† Claire, we at Reflections Homes are super proud of you and honored to be part of the journey that inspired you to keep cooking to the top! ¬†Congratulations!!
