Find Your Style on HGTV

Developing a self-assured design style can be a daunting process, but now hesitant homeowners can learn how to unleash their designer within with the help of popular HGTV personality Karen McAloon, host of Find Your Style. Viewers will be able to see special sneak episodes on Sunday, August 12 at 10 pm ET/PT and Sunday, August 19 at 10 pm ET/PT, directly following HGTV Design Star. The series will premiere in its regular weekly time slot on Saturday, August 18 at 10:30 pm ET/PT.

Best known for her resourcefulness, creative solutions and quirky, artistic touches on the HGTV series Design Remix, Karen McAloon takes on a new role here, teaching the design-challenged some of the fundamentals of design and the basic principles they need to execute their own makeovers.

In each episode, McAloon first inspects the home for clues that can help homeowners identify their own design preferences. After helping them find their "inner designer," Karen sends the family off to shop and decorate on their own using their new-found knowledge. Sure, they make mistakes, but they also get things right, and McAloon is always on hand to inspire, encourage and provide her expert counsel.

"Find Your Style showcases the talents of Karen McAloon and empowers viewers to imagine and enjoy their homes in unexpected new ways and inspires them to uncover their own hidden tastes and propensity for design," said Melissa Sykes, senior vice president, original programming.

A special "Style Quiz" also will launch on on a web page designed to coincide with the series launch for online users who want to determine their own style in a fun and interactive way.
