WHAT PEOPLE REALLY WANT TO KNOW:
WHY CAN'T I FIND KIM ON TV AND WHAT HAPPENED TO MYLES OF STYLE?
Oh, but you can find her on TV! She’s busy creating her signature, inspiring makeovers on OWN’s Emmy nominated lifestyle show, Home Made Simple. As for Myles of Style, it rocked for three amazing seasons and over forty episodes—which Kim looks back on with great fondness. Playing such a huge role on HGTV during it's heyday of fabulous makeover shows was amazing and could only be topped by the dream of working for one of her idols, Ms. Oprah Winfrey.
WILL KIM COME TO MY HOUSE AND HELP ME?
Kim’s work schedule makes house calls tough, but she is available for consultations via Skype. In fact, Skype consults have proven to be a really fun, unique gift idea. Go to the Contact page to inquire.
WHAT IS THE BEST COLOR TO PAINT MY ROOM?
Luckily, there is no such thing as a ‘best’ color! Kim feels that when dressing your home, you should start with what you love. Take a look in your closet and notice what colors pop up over and over—those hues are the beginning of your design color map!
DOES KIM HAVE KIDS?
Kim has furry babies—a giant old-man dog named Ollie and a tiny lady-cat named Piggy. She and Scott, her husband of thirteen years, are quite pleased that neither baby will ever ask to borrow the car or require college tuition.
WHAT IS KIM'S ETHNIC BACKGROUND?
Kim is half black and half white. However, depending on her hairdo, people guess Hawaiian, Puerto Rican, Thai, or Filipina.
HAS KIM MET OPRAH NOW THAT SHE WORKS WITH OWN?
Not yet, but her fingers are crossed for the next holiday party.
