Meet the Homeowners: Home Town Season 4 Berry-DeMonte

Did you catch episode 8 of HGTV’s Home Town? Well, it was one of our favorite episodes ever.

Josh and Giorgio totally captured our hearts this episode, as well as Hemingway and Seamus, their dogs! In case you didn’t get enough of them or their home, you’ve come to the right place.

Keep reading for a fun Q & A with the homeowners!

What was your favorite part of doing Home Town?

“Our favorite part of doing Hometown was honestly the crew of hometown. They were so nice, caring, and even funny! We can’t think of a better group of people who LOVE what they do, and it really shows in their work.”

Do you think Erin nailed your style?

“100%. Going into this, We were both unsure how it would look, because while Giorgio and myself have similar style, we are both different enough that combining them could look like a disaster. Erin also nailed the zebra pillows, she had no idea that I [Josh] love zebras.” (gray sofa, gray chair in living room, black leather chair from Lott Furniture Co.)

What’s your favorite piece of furniture in your home?

“Our favorite furniture piece is the Desk. We know it has deep roots in this community and your family’s and we couldn’t be happier to extend that legacy.”

The desk and chair were my grandfather’s, Willie Joe Rowell, the owner of Smith Furniture Co. This other furniture store was located where Laurel Mercantile Co. is today!

I don’t have anything else of my grandfather’s besides photos, so his desk is really special to me. I can’t think of a better place to have it used again.

What would you recommend to prospective Laurel homeowners?

“Small homes have charm too. Many people say they were surprised we didn’t pick the Bond House, while it was a great home, the space was just too large for us. We know that even this house will be a project to keep up when we’re not here. Good thing the community here in laurel is always eager to help!”

Favorite place to take your dogs while you’re in town?

“We live to take our dogs to Mason Park! They even have a dog park.”

Why Spring Clean When You Can Spring Refresh!

I don’t know about you, but it’s time for me to update my home for spring! This girl is itching for some pops of color and texture to add some fun to my space. Working at a furniture store, you better believe that I have scoured the store for the perfect additions, and I now have enough furniture on my list to fill up AT LEAST three homes.

If you know me then you know that I am covered in tattoos and have hot pink hair. I need something that screams “We are here to have fun up in this place!” Take a look at this gorgeous chair from Chairs of America. This particular one has been used on HGTV’s HomeTown several times, but I want it in this bright mustard fabric. Don’t we love a custom order? Paired with this pink traditional style rug, my candy-store bubble-gum dreams have come true. 

If you aren’t like me and don’t need to redesign your entire space whenever you’re bored, stop by Lott and add a few bits and bobs to breathe some new life into your space. A lot can be done with just a new lamp in an interesting shape or new pillows in fun colors. 

I am in love with these pillows! You better hurry by and pick them up because these babies are on my list! I’ve paired these with this sofa to add dimension and color to it. Investing in a sofa in a neutral tone and a classic shape gives you the freedom to switch out the pillows with each season. Floral patterns are very in for spring (as always), but they are even more accessible in these muted tones. Paired with complimentary mauve and textured black and white keeps it fun and carefree but still “pulled-together.”

This chair is everything. This piece gives you a color palette that works with anything with the addition of those amazing wooden arms, both making it perfect for a modern rustic style home. And can’t you just see it being showcased on an episode of HomeTown?!

We just got this dining room set in store, and we love it! It is perfect for a small space, and the price is right for anyone. Black and white plaid is really in for spring, so we dressed it with cloth napkins in the print. Changing out your dining room table dressings can do so much for “spring-ifying” your home with minimal effort. 

I cannot wait to help you freshen up your space for the season. Honestly, you need to come in soon before I buy everything that we have in stock. Give me something to funnel all of this design energy into! See you soon!
