HGTV’s Kimberly Lacy brings her appeal to Central Ohio Home & Garden Show
Kimberly Lacy, co-host of HGTV’s popular show “Curb Appeal: The Block,” will appear at the 2011 Central Ohio Home & Garden Show
Named just last week as the International Ambassador for the Fuller Center for Housing, Lacy’s career and passion for design started early when she worked for her mother's interior decorating business. That led to Lacy starting her own successful interior painting company at the young age of 17. When she landed an internship with the Washington DC-based HGTV show “Designed to Sell,” Lacy’s TV career took off. Her artisan paint and design background, combined with extraordinary creativity and work ethic, quickly propelled her from intern to production coordinator to on-camera talent. Lacy was cast as the spunky co-host and project manager for San Francisco-based “Curb Appeal: The Block,” now in its third season on HGTV.
HGTV’s “Curb Appeal: The Block,” helps beautify multiple homes on the same block using a variety of makeovers. Each episode highlights the dramatic makeover of one home’s exterior. The crew then makes their way down the street to repaint front doors, add window boxes and tackle smaller-scale makeovers that create instant impact, increasing property values for an entire block.
In her limited spare time, Lacy owns and operates her own design/artisan paint company, where she uses her design expertise and a passion to help needy children and the elderly. She also serves as spokesperson for The Fuller Center, a non-profit organization that increases the quality of life in impoverished neighborhoods.
The 2011 Central Ohio Home & Garden Show, presented by gridSMART from AEP Ohio, begins Saturday, Feb. 26, and runs through Sunday, March 6, at the Ohio Expo Center.
