"Trading Spaces" Designer In East Texas

For years, she has been on national TV, changing people's lives by trading their spaces. Designer Christi proctor from TLC's home improvement show "Trading Spaces," was at the Villa in Tyler Thursday, talking to members of the Women's Symphony League. It's for a fundraiser for the East Texas Symphony Orchestra. Christi says she grew up all over Texas and that has influenced her style of design. She even gave us some advice to pass on to you.

"I would encourage everyone to take their own personality, their own collections and make that the forefront of their home, because when people walk in they want to feel you, they want to feel your life and they want to embrace your family, they don't want to know what the next "trend" is, they want to be comfortable," she says.

Christi says what's next for her is designing her own lamp line and starring in a brand new show that's currently in the works.
