As the 2007 winner of HGTV’s ‘Design Star’, Kim Myles helmed her eponymous home makeover show ‘Myles of Style’ for three seasons, and continues to appear as a host and designer on shows like ‘HGTV’d’ and ‘America’s Biggest Yard Sale’.
Kim’s message is that great décor and style can and should be driven by imagination, creativity and self-expression (versus a giant bank account). Her philosophy has made her a leading voice in the DIY/Lifestyle arena, and has also led to successful partnerships with clients such as Lowe's.com, E.L.F. Cosmetics, Tostitos, and Energizer.
Kim is the CEO of her interior design firm (Kim Myles Design), and is also a contributing columnist for numerous shelter publications and websites. As a licensed hairstylist in both NY and CA, she’s invested in the beauty of both homes, and the people who live in them. When she’s not actively improving aesthetics, she’s busy talking about her unique approach to style via speaking engagements and personal appearances. As a veteran public speaker, she’s spoken to over 20,000 people to date.
Kim believes that taking a more creative, imaginative approach to home, style and life can yield giant dividends for almost anyone. It’s her mission to help people discover their own individual style, and to celebrate it in their homes, as well as in life!
You can also find Kim regulary contributing to the following publications. Here's what she has to say about them:
- House of Fifty: I began as a huge fan of this magazine, and now have the distinct pleasure of being a contributing columnist. Through my column “The Heart of Design”, I explore the emotional connections between our decor and our sense of self.
- The Well Dressed Home: As a designer, I know that the right decorative accessories can take any room to the next level. As the chief blogger for WDH, each month I get to play with their newest selection of unique décor goodies (and photograph all of the fun!).
- Organic Beauty Talk: I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist for many years, but the world of truly organic beauty products was still a bit mysterious to me (and seemed, frankly...crunchy). Turns out, I was very, very wrong. At Organic Beauty Talk, I’m learning that organic beauty can be as rich and luxurious as it is healthy and responsible. I review products and share my experiences via my column “The Re-Education of Kim Myles” because when you know better, you do better!
