Myles, 'Design Star' Winner, Gets HGTV Series Of Her Own

Kim Myles captured America’s vote to become an HGTV Design Star and now she’s ready to lead her own show on the network.

In her weekly show Myles of Style, the host will show viewers how to transform lackluster spaces into beautifully designed rooms with her unique spin on design and décor. The show will benefit from sneak-peek exposure on March 16 as a lead-out from the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway 2008, a live hour-long special airing that night at 9 p.m. (ET)

Myles of Style will follow at 10 p.m. next Sunday before settling into its regular Thursday 8:30 p.m. timeslot, beginning March 20.

In the sneak peek episode, viewers will meet Hector and Marina Perez, a couple who have tried everything to achieve the right look for their cottage-style living room.With the room’s coved ceilings, indoor shutters and gleaming hardwood floors, Myles sees the room’s potential to become “cottage chic.” To achieve this comfortable yet stylish design, she incorporates glamorous touches like velvet accessories, a soft celery green color for the walls and a silver cabana stripe on the ceiling to accentuate the room’s classic cottage architecture.

“Kim’s keen eye for design and her ability to create fantastic décor with unexpected materials will provide viewers with a whole new approach to designing their own spaces,” said James Bolosh, vice president, HGTV event programming, in a statement. “From the shopping tips and field trips to the simple ways to invigorate bland furnishings, viewers will see Kim demonstrate easy design ideas that result in a polished and cohesive look.”
