Trading Spaces star brings home improvement expertise to vipHomeLink’s leading digital home solution and expert content offering


vipHomeLink welomes designer Laurie Smith, of TLC’s Trading Spaces fame, to the Company as Brand Ambassador

“A home is a reflection of the people living there,” says Laurie Smith. “Getting to share my passion for home with vipHomeLink members across North America to help make their homes more enjoyable is an opportunity I could not pass up! Together with the vipHomeLink team, I am so excited to connect homeowners and B2B partners with vipHomeLink’s fantastic digital solution that every homeowner should have!”


“A home that not only functions well but nurtures. It's a reflection of you. Your favorite color may not be my favorite color. What soothes and comforts you, may not soothe and comfort me or the next person, but that home at the end of the day is your nurturing place.”
