Breegan Jane and Carrie Locklyn are two awesome people who are also pretty humble, considering what they're doing with their lives these days. They make up two-thirds of the design team behind HGTV's reboot of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. And I was really taken with how much they talked about feeling gratitude towards the people whose homes they are transforming, as well as a deep sense of purpose and connection they are experiencing with their team and the volunteers who help them in every town they visit. This is such an uplifting conversation that goes way beyond talk of design, but it's certainly rooted in the premise that all people, regardless of life circumstance, deserve to live inside beauty. On a side note, their 3rd partner on the show, designer Darren Keefe Reiher was supposed to join us as well, but was having tech difficulties so we, unfortunately missed hearing his voice in the conversation. But when you watch Extreme Makeover, you definitely see how integral he is to the magic of the show.
The show premiered on Sunday, February 16 at 9pm on HGTV and airs Sundays at 8pm ET/PT.
