HGTV’s Design Star Winner, Jennifer Bertrand on What’s Next in Design

Who wouldn’t want to meet this ray of sunshine?

Jennifer Bertrand is best known as the winner of HGTV’s Design Star, drawing over 5 million viewers to her no-nonsense, accessible approach to making positive and impactful design changes without breaking the bank. After taking the competition by storm, Jennifer moved on to host her own TV show, Paint Over! With Jennifer Bertrand, featuring facilities in transition and in desperate need of help.

You can attend a Meet & Greet today from 4-7 p.m. at Jack Laurie in Carmel (200 S. Rangeline Road) or tomorrow from 10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at Jackie Laurie in Fort Wayne (430 W. Coliseum Blvd.)  as she strives to inspire local designers, businesses, and consumers on how to have beautiful talking points at home or in your design business. Bertrand will share her influences from abroad and what she feels is next around the corner in the design world.

Bertrand has appeared in countless media outlets such as USA Today, The New York Post, Every Day With Rachael Ray Magazine, Life & Style Magazine, InStyle Magazine and more. She is currently the national spokesperson for Flooring America and Flooring Canada, as well as one of three national Insiders for the National Kitchen + Bath Association.
