HIGH POINT, N.C., April 1, 2010 ? Libby Langdon, nationally known interior design expert, recently visited the High Point University campus as part of a regional meeting through “WithIt” – Women in the Home Industries Today.
Langdon, formerly of High Point, is a designer on HGTV’s “Small Space, Big Style” and makeover guru on “The Rachael Ray Show.” During her HPU visit, she presented “Libby’s Wild and Wacky Path into the World of Interior Design,” which included details about how she got started in her career, as well as learning experiences, struggles and successes, and more.
The audience had the opportunity to peek into Langdon’s world, thanks to funny stories about some of the difficulties she has had during makeover TV shows, and also how she works with residential and commercial design clients. She shared insights and inspirations on facing challenges, and the many exciting opportunities the design and home furnishings industry has to offer.
Following her presentation, she signed copies of her book, “Libby Langdon’s Small Space Solutions.”
