The Home and Garden Television (HGTV) network recently launched a popular show called Design Happens. The program follows interior designer Kristi Nelson, of Los Angeles-based KMNelson Design, as she gives home makeovers in the Hollywood Hills.

Nelson's latest design project was updating a 1930's-era English Cottage in Los Angeles. The house featured a worn stucco exterior and dated interior, but spectacular views. Nelson was hired to update the living room and dining room from floor to ceiling, as well as accessorize and decorate. The inspiration for the makeover began with a $5 African textile and list of what her clients do not like.

The result was a blend of contemporary and traditional elements that reflect the eclectic tastes of the home owners.

"My overriding goal is to define and communicate each and every client's individual style and architectural preferences through design; and deliver that unique vision of home," Nelson said.

Nelson began her career earning undergraduate and graduate degrees in studio art and art history. Then she began working in interior design and building her reputation in Los Angeles. She launched her own firm eight years ago, which specializes in high-end residential work. Nelson was featured on the Hot List 2009 in Angeleno Interiors Magazine.
