Soap Star Joins The Design Network
Daytime television star Kimberlin Brown, best known as Sheila Carter on "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful", has joined the Design Network's growing cast of design experts.
Brown made her debut on the network this week.
Brown says she has always been attracted to architecture and its elements. Becoming an architect was her dream even when Hollywood came knocking. While portraying the character of Sheila Carter, Brown changed paths and moved into interior design. She was amazed to watch the artistry of set design and was inspired to attend The Interior Design Institute in California. Brown has since run a successful design company, designing her first home more than 20 years ago. Her homes have been published and filmed with clients across the U.S. and abroad.
In her multi-episode series "Dramatic Designs," Brown invites viewers to follow the process of turning a beachfront property in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, into a custom vacation home for a long-time client with a family of five. From the sand up, Brown shares everything from space planning to the final installation, as well as the unpredictable, which includes an impending hurricane that threatens to throw the project off track. Brown also provides simple tips of the trade during each episode.
“My design philosophy? Listen to your client,” Brown said. “Give them what they want! I don’t just design homes, I design a lifestyle.”
Jason Harris, founder of the Design Network, said he's thrilled Brown has joined the network.
"She’s very recognized for her acting career, but many of her fans don’t realize that Kimberlin has such a gift for interior design and has been a respected industry professional for more than 20 years," Harris said. "Her Cabo San Lucas vacation home is just one of many amazing projects that we hope to showcase on The Design Network.”
