Q: What is the best part of your job?
Kortney: "It’s very satisfying to see a project do a 180 in less than four months allowing me to start from scratch and be creative again."

Q: What’s your go-to hostess gift? 
Kortney: "I love giving a really beautiful cutting board. Something that can sit out even when you aren’t cutting up your vegetables :)."

Q: What’s one thing you think people should splurge on for their home?
Kortney: "I’d splurge on linens. Bedding can really spice up a room and if you get the good stuff, it may just help you to sleep better too."

Q: What’s one simple thing homeowners can do to improve their landscape or garden? 
Kortney: "Trim everything back and mulch quarterly. Mulching will ground all of the plants and make everything stand out. It goes hand in hand that it’s a reminder to trim everything back and weed the gardens before you mulch so they all go hand in hand."

Q: What is your favorite space to makeover and why?
Kortney: "The kitchen is always my favorite room in the house. It’s usually the hub of the home and I always try to go about it from a party perspective. Can the buyers family and friends all hang in the room without it feeling congested (even if the room is small)? Are the amenities there to make it a room to stand the test of time?"

Kortney, whose appearance is sponsored by Kichler Lighting, will be presenting on the Main Stage Friday, Feb. 3 at 6 pm, and Saturday, Feb. 4 at noon. Get your discounted show tickets now!
